Pahiatua_webFarmlands has increased its support of Agrecovery’s container recycling network with a new collection site in Pahiatua.

Farmlands stores host 14 of 71 collection sites around New Zealand, where farmers and growers can recycle the empty plastic containers of more than 3,000 commonly used chemicals for free.

Pahiatua Business Manager Brian Abbot is pleased to offer the service to local farmers and growers.

“We tested customer demand with a one-off event that saw more than 800 containers delivered in one day. That showed the volume was there and customer feedback was positive, so opening a permanent site seemed the natural thing to do.”
