Bale Wrap

That’s a wrap on what to do with bale wrap!

Farm bale wrap waste

Please note: Our further processing plant is open Tuesday to Friday 8am-4pm for bale wrap drop off.

Recycle South can genuinely recycle your bale wrap right here in Southland. With the donations of our incredible community, we are giving you a solid, and cost-effective option for getting bale wrap off the farm giving the plastics a new environmentally friendly lease of life.

Processing of bale wrap is $150 + GST per tonne (approximately 15cents per bale).

A few reminders:
Please separate the outer and inner linings, and ensure all bale wrap is free of debris and netting.

Bale wrap needs to be stuffed into fadges, bulka bags or PlasBak bags to be accepted. Please DO NOT fold or roll the bale wrap in the bags; this makes it harder for our team to sort.

We have a form for first time customers to complete in order for you to drop your bale wrap off to us. Want to save time? Download and complete the form before you come to see us.

All bale wrap is to be dropped off to our further processing plant located at 210 Branxholme Makarewa Road.
