Waste disposals and acceptance

Ag plastics and trickle tape

Bundaberg Regional Council's landfill sites each year accept over 560 tonnes of agricultural plastic and trickle tape from across the region. When disposed of incorrectly, these materials can end up in the landfill, illegally disposed of or burnt. Collection and recycling of these items will divert waste from landfill and reduce environmental harm caused by burning or illegal dumping.
