‘This will be a real game-changer’

Solway Recycling has welcomed the launch of Unterland’s new clear bale wrap as “it can be recycled into more products”.

The wrap is being offered by Emerald Isle Recycle in Northern Ireland and Solway Recycling in Scotland.

A spokesperson for Solway Recycling noted that the product has added benefits of reduced bird damage, reduced the visual impact on the environment, easier problem recognition and trading of bales.

‘A real game-changer’

Releasing a statement on social media, Solway Recycling said: “This will be a real game-changer, if large groups of farmers use the clear wrap in the future and there is no cross contamination of colours of film, it might end up being a free disposal for them!”

“This wrap is made by the well-known company Unterland; however, with enough pressure from farmers, hopefully, all the main manufacturers will produce it for next season to help stimulate more farm plastic getting recycled.”
