In 2023 IFFPG set new records with 40000 tonnes Farm plastics Recycled. This is the equivalent of plastic from 20 million bales of silage. However this has come at a time of escalating recycling costs due to global events such as the war in Ukraine. To ensure the scheme can continue achieving record recycling levels the levy is now €286 per tonne. This has come into effect from 23rd January 2024.
