Don’t panic about waste

In a panic about the new farm waste regs coming in on May 15? Wondering what you’re going to do with all those attractive piles of old silage plastic, fertiliser and seed bags, not to mention pesticide containers, lengths of asbestos cement roofing, knackered batteries and sundry oil filters?

Concerned about that trusty farm tip that you’ve relied on as a waste receptacle for the last 20 years? Heard rumours that you have to buy an expensive licence if you want to bring in a trailer-load of motorway planings? Wondering what a waste exemption licence looks like when it’s at home?

You can answer these and many other questions (and separate myth from fact) by coming to the Environment Agency’s Farm Waste West event on Thursday 3 May at the Severn Hall, Three Counties Showground, Malvern, Worcs. In fact you can even come away from the event fully compliant.

There is also a seminar programme, and a selection of waste recycling companies will be on hand to explain the ins and outs of disposing of your waste.

Entry costs £10/person on the day but you can download free tickets from the Farm Waste West Event organisers. For more details see the website or ring 08454-900142
