ATTENTION FARMERS: To increase agricultural plastic recycling on PEI, Cleanfarms and IWMC are collaborating on a pilot project o collect baler twine. The pilot project will allow us to learn more about twine recycling and hopefully lead to a permanent program.
To participate, pick up a Cleanfarms recycling bag from a Waste Watch Drop-Off Center (WWDC) and follow these 3 steps:
- Shake – Remove as much debris, snow or ice as possible from your used twine. Do not include net wrap/netting.
- Bag – Place loose twine in a clear collection bag. Poke holes at the bottom of the bag to allow any moisture to drain. When the bag is full, close it with twine or a zip tie.
- Return – Return bags of used twine to a WWDC. There is no charge, however, overly dirty twine may be rejected or subject to a disposal fee.
For additional information on this pilot, contact Cleanfarms at 1-877-622-4460 or email@example.com or contact IWMC at 1-888-280-8111.
