A national voluntary scheme has been agreed for the collection of farm plastics in the UK, but concerns have been raised that there is insufficient capacity in the UK to process the material.
The proposed scheme will be called Agriculture, Plastic & Environment UK (APE UK), and is planned to be operational before the end of 2019.
The scheme will aim to provide farmers with a “sustainable solution for the end-of-life management of their non-packaging agri-plastics,” commonly known as farm films.
