The Irish Farm Film Producers Group (IFFPG) is the national farm plastics recycling compliance scheme. Their role is to provide cost effective compliance to their members (companies that place farm film products on the market) and a comprehensive recycling service for farmers nationwide to ensure that we exceed national recycling targets as set by the government. Irish Film Producers Group do this by operating approximately 225 bring-centres annually, as well as providing a farmyard collection service. They are currently recycling in excess of 25,000 tonnes of farm plastics yearly, which equates to a national recycling rate of over 70%. They are a not for profit body, which is primarily funded by a recycling levy that they charge to their members. They receive additional funding through a weight based collection charge that farmers pay.
