The County of Vermilion River has partnered with Cleanfarms to provide recycling solutions for agriculture plastic in the county. This service is offered free of charge to agriculture producers operating within the County. We collect grainbags and twine to be recyclyed at the:
- The transer site is open from 9:00 am-4:45 pm

The Vermilion Waste Transfer Site accepts clean, tightly rolled grain bags. Unrolled bags will not be accepted. Vermilion is currently the only site in the county that collects bags.
To incourage producers to recylce grainbag, we have a variety of rollers for farmers to use to roll their grainbags free of charge. Please call ahead to book rollers to avoid disappointment. There are two different types of grainbag rollers avaible to better serve producers and reduce wait time
The Kirchner Roller
The Brown Brother Roller
The transfer site accepts clean, knot free, bagged twine. Knotted twine will not be accepted. Twine bags are available at the County or the Transfer Station. Please ensure there is no hay in the twine bags
Requirements for Twine:
Left Photo - Acceptable Right Photo - We cannot accept
Please shake off hay and other material
|Net Wrap and Silage Tarps||Currently, we are not accepting net wrap to be recycled. Net wrap has several different types of plastics that cannot be recycled. Net wrap gets caught in the shreading machines needed for recycling and causes issues. Please do not include Net Wrap in your rolled grainbags or in your twine bags to be recycled.
Silage tarps are also not accepted becuase there are no markets for the recyled material.
|Unwanted Pesticide and Livestock Medication||There will be a collection date in the Fall of 2022 in partnership with Cleanfarms.|
