The Farm Hazardous Waste Collection Scheme will operate again this autumn. There will be 10 sites located throughout the country where farmers can bring a range of hazardous materials to ensure they will be safely disposed of, including things like pesticides, veterinary medicines, doses, dips, wormers, dry cow and mastitis tubes, needles and syringes, waste paints, aerosols, corrosives, oil and air filters, oily wastes, brake fluids, brake pads, antifreeze, adhesives, coolants, grease cartridges and creosote among other items.

On page 41, Andy Doyle looks at more details of the scheme, including what materials will be accepted and what the costs involved are. He will also outline dates and locations of the collections.
