Farm Plastic Regulations Enforcement

Local authorities regulate the sale and use of plastic film on farms to ensure it is collected and disposed of in an environmentally friendly way.

The Farm Plastics Regulations 2001 (S.I. No. 341 of 2001) came into effect on 23rd July 2001.

The main purpose of the Regulations is designed to promote the collection and recovery of silage plastics waste. These Regulations revise and replace the 1997 Regulations and are designed to assist the improved recovery of waste farm plastics.

Irish Farm Film Producers Group (IFFPG) run one day farm plastic bring-centres in County Carlow.
