One time special promotional offer for the Plasback recycling bins.

This promotion is possible due to the support of the Ministry for the Environment’s Waste Minimisation Fund and will only be available from the Plasback website HERE. The offer covers 420 Plasback recycling bins for a discount price of $300.00 plus gst each Bin.
This Waste Minimisation Fund project is designed to increase participation in rural recycling and is focussed on increasing the collection of silage film plastic from farms. As part of the projects reporting aims we need to know exactly where each recycling Bin is placed so that we can monitor the collections from each Bin. Once you have purchased these discounted Bins we will allocate a collector to you.
This offer applies to the Plasback recycling Bin only. Farmers can continue to purchase the Plasback liners from rural stores, Plasback collectors or through the Plasback website.

The Plasback program has seen a significant growth in its collections during the first six months of the current financial year and has collected over 1100 tonnes of waste plastic from farms. This compares to 1230 tonnes for the whole of the 2013/14 year. Much of this growth has been driven by farm sustainability initiatives such as the one promoted by Deer Genetics NZ who have bought two Plasback recycling bins for recovering waste plastic from their farms.

The Plasback Solution

As part of our commitment to excellence Agpac is dedicated to Product Stewardship. Our recycling programme, Plasback, demonstrates how we take responsibility for the environmental effects of our products throughout their lifecycle. Plasback was the joint-second company in New Zealand to achieve accreditation for our Product Stewardship by the Minister for the Environment and the first scheme to be accredited for the agricultural sector. Our continual innovation includes the development of new sustainable products for the agricultural and horticultural markets such as Tuffboard and Tuffdeck, versatile plastic sheets and decks made entirely from recycled plastics. Our Environmental division also supplies the popular Urba Plus stackable recycling containers as well as other containers designed to segregate food waste and other recyclables at source.
