Recycling for Rural Industries

This page explains the options available to farmers and vineyard owners for the recycling and disposal of hazardous waste. 

Some of the materials and chemicals that are routinely used on our farms may be hazardous or contain hazardous chemicals.

When these products are no longer needed it is necessary that they are disposed of in an appropriate manner to ensure that the environment is not contaminated and that there is no risk to people’s health.
