What is the best way to recycle plastic film?

The best way to recycle plastic film may vary depending on the specific type of plastic it is made of and the recycling capabilities in your local area. However, here are some general tips that may be helpful:

  1. Check the recycling code: Most plastic film will have a recycling code on it that indicates the type of plastic it is made from. This can help you determine the best way to recycle it.
  2. Contact your local recycling center: Contact your local recycling center to find out if they accept plastic sheeting. At NWR we offer free tipping of clean farm plastics.
  3. Reuse or repurpose the sheeting: If the plastic sheeting is still in good condition, consider reusing it or repurposing it for other projects around your home or garden.
  4. Look for recycling programs: There are some companies and organizations that specialize in recycling plastic sheeting. Look for programs like these in your area.
  5. Consider upcycling: If the plastic sheeting simply cannot be recycled, consider upcycling it into something new and useful. For example, you could use it to create a DIY greenhouse or as a cover for outdoor furniture.

Furthermore, remember that reducing plastic consumption and choosing sustainable alternatives whenever possible is also an important part of minimizing waste and protecting the environment.
