Burdekin Shire Council accepts a range of agricultural plastics at no cost at the Home Hill Transfer Station only.
Agricultural plastics such as fluming, plastic drums (not used for fertilizer), plastic film such as pallet wrap and cotton bale wrap, commercial bread and milk crates, poly and HDPE pipe are all accepted. Council does not accept fertiliser bags as part of Agricultural plastics recycling. Please see the fertiliser bag recycling link for further information on recycling of this product.
Fluming and trickle tape can end up in the landfill, illegally disposed of or burnt. Collection and recycling of these items will divert waste from landfill and reduce environmental harm caused by burning or illegal dumping.
All excessive residual plant material and dirt must be removed. Contaminants and foreign materials within the load will not be accepted.
