Farm Waste Recycling Scheme

Since the ban of burning farm plastics came into force in 2007, and with no local alternatives for disposal of farm plastics at that time, we established Allerton Recycling to provide a locally based facility.

Our business model was to demonstrate how farmers could bring their waste to a local hub for onward recycling and for us to sell on the materials to achieve a cost-effective solution.

In this initiative, we have only ever sought to recover our costs. We gained full sponsorship funding for an industrial baler to avoid passing on costs to our members.

Despite our efforts, the low prices for plastics and the cost of transport means we are no longer covering our costs.

It is therefore with regret that we must announce the closure of Allerton Recycling. We are no longer able to accept any further waste.

We realise this will present an inconvenience to all our members so we list alternative recycling outlets that you may wish to consider below.

We sincerely regret this closure but thank you for your support and valued custom.
