Acceptance Criteria

Step 3 – Packing

Packing

Put bags into your Agrecovery liner. This should fit 100 bags.

Once full, seal the liner with the zip tie. Each zip tie has a code on it. This is needed for the drop off site so that they can record your recycling in your Agrecovery account.

Store in a dry location.

We currently offer on-farm pick up in the AUCKLAND, WAIRARAPA and NELSON regions. Please call Agrecovery on 0800 247 326 to arrange collection.

We are working on setting up additional drop-off sites nationwide, so keep an eye on our website to check when a location becomes available near you.

If you live outside of these regions and want to recycle LDPE bags now, please call us to discuss your options.

If you have LDPE bags from another brand ask them about joining Agrecovery so that you can recycle their products for free.

We are a not-for-profit charitable trust. The brands that choose to be part of our programme pay a voluntary levy to cover the cost of recycling their bags. We encourage all agrichemical brands to join and take responsibility for their products and support sustainable agriculture.

Unfortunately, we can’t recycle bags that haven’t been shaken out properly to remove excess residue.

They will be returned to you for proper preparation and you can bring them back for recycling.

Yes, you need to become an Agrecovery member.
