Recycle your plastic twine, bale wrap, and silage bags/bunker covers through the Cleanfarms pilot project!

Free collections bags and material drop-off is available at the Kincardine Waste Management Centre.

For your material to be accepted for free, it must be prepared for recycling. This means it must be:

  • Separated by material type (no mixed materials)
  • Relatively clean of debris and dirt
  • In a collection bag that is tied shut, and no heavier than 50lbs

Only separated plastic twine, bale wrap, and silage bags/bunker covers are accepted in this pilot.

For more information, visit this Cleanfarms webpage.

This pilot is currently for Bruce County residents. You can view other collection sites in the County here.

Are you a farmer that uses more than 1 tonne of bale wrap or silage covers per year? Cleanfarms would like to speak with you about alternate collection models. Please get in touch by calling 1-877-622-4460 ext. 2240 or filling out this contact form.

The Municipality of Kincardine is pleased to announce that a Film Plastics Recycling Program has been implemented in Kincardine.  There will be 2 (Yellow) Film Plastics collection bins at each of the 2 drop off locations which will be emptied regularly by Grey Bruce Trash Taxi.

1. Kincardine Waste Management Centre: 437 Sideroad 15, Armow - during regular operating hours
