Shire offers free silage wrap disposal – East Gippsland

Round bales of silage stacked three bales high in a field.

East Gippsland Shire Council is offering free silage wrap disposal as part of its efforts to support drought-affected farmers.

The offer will be available at Bairnsdale Landfill and Orbost Transfer Station from Monday, April 1 to Sunday, June 30.

The silage wrap needs to be shaken and as clean as possible, and will be accepted in Bulka bags, wool bags or Plasback bags without net wrap or twine.

Silage wrap is made of a high quality linear low-density polyethylene plastic which is a wasted resource if sent to landfill.

Burning silage wrap is illegal and it also releases harmful chemicals into the atmosphere.

Bairnsdale Landfill is located at 200 Johnsons Road, Forge Creek and Orbost Transfer Station is at 351 Bonang Road.
