The Regional District of Fraser-Fort George is joining forces with the regional districts of Peace River and Bulkley Nechako to test out an agricultural plastics recycling pilot program.
The project was initiated by Cleanfarms to collect agricultural plastics such as twine, bale wrap and silage film. In the Fraser-Fort George region, a collection site will be established at the McBride Regional Transfer Station. The program is slated to go for three years, with the RDFFG contributing a maximum of $79,521 over the three years. Further details, including a start date when the program is expected to begin will be announced in the coming months.
