Stakeholders

Councils
The Plasback program has been made possible through the support of local government. The participating councils have recognised the needs of their rural rate payers for a long term solution for the sustainable disposal of farm plastic waste. Participating councils help through making transfer stations available for the drop off of the waste and helping to fund the Plasback recycling collection.

Details of which transfer stations and what days silage wrap can be dropped are on this website under find a Drop Location. If your council isn't on the list, ask your council to contact Plasback for information on how to join the program.
