The FWAG Southwest Farm Plastic Recycling Scheme began in 2004 and has taken place annually ever since. The scheme provides farmers with a responsible, environmentally sound way to recycle plastic, preventing it from going to landfill.
The scheme is simple and straight forward; there are no membership fees and you only pay for the plastic you bring on the day.
Due to popular demand we are extending our annual scheme, which now includes Holsworthy Farmers Market on Monday 24th May 2021 with kind permission of Kivells.
