Sask. grain bag recycling program extended

Apr. 16, 2014 - Saskatchewan is extending the Grain Bag Recycling Pilot Project in 2014. The program includes recycling for both grain bags and twine.

Farmers and ranchers can access collection sites across the province in Cudworth, Hirsch, Humboldt, Kelvington, Macoun, Mankota (twine only), Milestone, Moose Jaw, Mossbank, Oungre, Prince Albert, Rush Lake, Unity and Viscount.

If recycling is not an option, producers should check with their nearest landfill to see if they take used grain bags.

The Ministry of Environment is currently working on the creation of regulations that will form the basis for an industry-led, permanent recycling program for 2015.
