The Plasback program has seen a significant growth in its collections during the first six months of the current financial year and has collected over 1100 tonnes of waste plastic from farms. This compares to 1230 tonnes for the whole of the 2013/14 year. Much of this growth has been driven by farm sustainability initiatives such as the one promoted by Deer Genetics NZ who have bought two Plasback recycling bins for recovering waste plastic from their farms.

The Plasback Solution
As part of our commitment to excellence Agpac is dedicated to Product Stewardship. Our recycling programme, Plasback, demonstrates how we take responsibility for the environmental effects of our products throughout their lifecycle. Plasback was the joint-second company in New Zealand to achieve accreditation for our Product Stewardship by the Minister for the Environment and the first scheme to be accredited for the agricultural sector.
Our continual innovation includes the development of new sustainable products for the agricultural and horticultural markets such as Tuffboard and Tuffdeck, versatile plastic sheets and decks made entirely from recycled plastics. Our Environmental division also supplies the popular Urba Plus stackable recycling containers as well as other containers designed to segregate food waste and other recyclables at source.
