About Plasback

Welcome to the Plasback New Zealand website

Plasback operates a Product Stewardship scheme to recover used farm plastics for recycling. Plasback came to New Zealand in 2006, and has gone from strength to strength. Operating their original bin and liner system, which when combined with on farm collection, has contributed to Plasback not only running a simple and effective system but has meant over 30,000 tonnes of waste collected since the scheme’s inception. As part of our continued commitment to Product Stewardship we now operate nine purpose built balers designed to improve the onward transport logistics from our main centres to the recycling plants, and have introduced new products made from recycled plastics, Tuffboard, Tuffdeck, and Plaswood. We have a reliable network of Contractors who run the collections, and cover the whole of New Zealand.

Plasback was the first product stewardship scheme for agriculture to receive accreditation from the Ministry for the Environment in 2010.

For further information please visit the FAQ page, or to receive a copy of the brochure please email your contact details to recycle@plasback.co.nz.



Plasback was accredited by the Minister for the Environment under the Waste Minimisation Act 2008 on 4th May 2010. This includes silage wrap, silage covers, grain bags, polypropylene bags, twines, large drum recovery, vine nets and irrigation pipe.

What we recycle today makes the world a little bit better for our kids and grandkids!
