Agricultural waste Recycling

 Modern agricultural waste processing

Agricultural waste recycling is a growing business, as more and more farms and companies turn to alternate ways to process waste products instead of sending them to landfill. With green waste becoming increasingly recycled in homes around the world, agriculture is also turning to recycling methods in order to reduce the amount of waste it has to pay to get rid of.

The waste that farms and other rural businesses produce is often extremely varied, and initially not so easy to recycle. The temptation to just bag it up and pay for it to be collected is an understandable one, but that won't save you any money. Strict farm waste laws are in place across the UK and other countries in North America and Europe, and landfill costs have risen dramatically in the last decade.

Separation and sorting

With the right recycling equipment and processing machinery, agricultural waste can easily be segregated, processed and sold for profit. All of the following waste can be processed and recycled using small mobile recycling equipment:

  • Green waste such as old trees, branches, and hedges can be easily separated and shredded for reuse
  • Mounds of used soil or waste from the ground can be crushed using a cone crusher, and passed through a trammel to provide you fresh top soil, and clean rocks which are useful for landscaping
  • Plastics from your farm, such as bale wraps, feed bags and buckets, and any kind of plastic container, can all be separated and then baled together easily for sale.
  • Plastics - Silage and Domestic
  • Hazardous substances and their containers – chemicals
  • Packaging – cardboard
  • Treated and untreated timber – old fencing
  • Metals - redundant machinery
  • Tyres – ex silage weighting down
  • Construction and demolition waste
