A Circular Economy for Silage Wrap
This project supports the development of a Product Stewardship Scheme for farm plastics, and, in particular, dairy silage wraps and covers. The project will assess the requirements for a successful and resilient product stewardship scheme and then, if feasible, run regional pilots before moving to national implementation. Supporting the Australian dairy industry's public commitment to a target of 100% of silage wrap being recycled by 2030, this project will work closely with key stakeholders including suppliers, plastics re-processors, dairy/cattle farmers, and successful stewardship schemes to ensure that the systems developed remain practical for farmers and commercially realistic.
