Regretfully our member, Ray Marshall
from Aberfeldy, the “SOLWAY” collector of
farm plastics has decided to retire from the
transporting of plastic waste.
We now have to contact Solway direct to get
any plastic bags uplifted by their own transport
and have arranged that the vehicle will be in
the area every so often so that there is not
a build-up of waste lying about the farms.
Phone the office for us to liaise with Solway to
ensure that all who require their services can
get best service.
The cost of this seasons collection is £25 per
liner or capped at £90 for as much bale wrap
or silo pit covers as you have to get rid off.
(This material can be uplifted in Solway liners
or LOOSE). Other types of waste plastic can
also be collected at £25 per full liner.
We are also able to offer a free waste oil
collection from your farm, subject to a
minimum volume of 200 litres (45 gallon
The latest advice from Solway is that they are
able now to recycle your Poly Tunnel covers
and they will make a payment for these.
Again contact the office with information on
what you have for disposal.
Solway can also assist you in recycling and
disposal of Tyres, Batteries, Used Oil Filters,
Redundant Agrochemicals, Redundant
Veterinary Medicines and Sheep Dip. There
would be a cost associated with this. If you
have a problem with any of these items, please
contact the office and we’ll get you a price for
As always we can get recycling bins and liners
for you if you wish to keep everything round
the farm in tidy condition for removal.

The Solway Bin System allows the farmer to
have segregated bins for the different materials
found on farm and ensures that there are no
unsightly mounds of black plastic that blows
around everywhere. Again if you need a
