Welcome to FarmXS Farm Waste Plastic
and Cardboard Recycling Scheme
FarmXS is a farm waste plastic and cardboard recycling collection service. It has been collecting and baling waste plastic from England’s farms, equestrian units and horticultural businesses since 2006. It is owned by Mark Webb and George Paton of WebbPaton Land Agents who are both Fellows of the Central Association of Agricultural Valuers. FarmXS is managed by Catherine Elmes and her assistant Beth Ponting.
FarmXS considers themselves as the professionals in agricultural recycling. Over the last 5 years 98% of the farm plastics we have collected has gone on to be recycled. Today we collect the plastic and cardboard waste produced from over 2,500 farms. The plastic is either picked up or taken by our customers to one of our 34 collection centres, all of which are based on a farm close to you. Here we bale the plastic through our high density compacting baler which is mounted on the back of the FarmXS lorry. Because we insist that the plastic is sorted by you before collection a high percentage is recyclable.
We recycle spray / chemical cans, silage sheets, silage wrap, baler twine, feed bags, fertiliser / seed bags and cardboard8
Ethical & Sustainable
Agricultural Plastic Recycling
Following the introduction of the Waste Management Regulations in 2006 banning the burning or burying of farm waste and farm plastic, FarmXS Ltd was set up to provide farmers and landowners with a sustainable recycling service for all types of farm plastic and cardboard.
All farmers now have a legal duty under the Waste Transfer Regulation to send their plastic waste off the farm either for recycling or to a landfill site, which is policed by the Environment Agency. If a farmer chooses to throw his farm waste into a skip there is a legal duty to sort the waste rather than sending it to a landfill site. Farm XS Ltd provide an ethical and sustainable farm waste and farm plastic collection service. Our scheme is run on a membership basis with an annual subscription depending on your farm acreage.
We are specialists in farm plastic waste and cardboard collection for recycling. Working throughout England.
Established in 2006 and owned by the Partners of WebbPaton.
