Waste disposals and acceptance

Ag plastics and trickle tape

Bundaberg Regional Council's landfill sites accepts agricultural plastic and trickle tape from across the region each year. Collection and recycling of these items will divert waste from landfill and reduce environmental harm caused by burning or illegal dumping. 

Trickle Tape must be clean and free from contamination to be accepted for recycling

Trickle Tape is sent on for recycling however when its too heavily contaminated (eg excessive soil, vegetation, metal wire or silicon inserts) or not adequately separated from other plastics & waste items it becomes unusable and can no longer be sent on for recycling and will need to be disposed of to landfill with a disposal fee payable. 

Waste disposals


Trickle Tape loads will be inspected and checked for contamination.  

Other Agricultural products that can be recycled through the local recycling centre (MRF) are:
