Haifa joins fertilizer package recycling

Haifa Australia, one of the major suppliers of water soluble nutrients to the country's horticulture industries, has signed up to the Farm Waste Recovery (FWR)  program for the collection and recycling of fertilizer packaging and is urging other suppliers and commodity groups to jump on board.

Stephen Richards from Farm Waste Recovery looks at bulk fertilizer bags jumped at a local tipHaifa Australia is one of the first specialty fertilizer suppliers to join other major companies in the FWR stewardship program and recycling of fertilizer packaging, including Impact Fertilizers and Incitec Pivot Fertilizers which were involved in an initial successful trial of the program.

As the company managing director I was pleased to sign up to the FWR stewardship program and recycling of fertilizer packaging to protect it's brands and importantly the environment. The recycling program will help to reduce landfill and also create Australian jobs.

I also recently convened a meeting with other specialty fertilizer companies, encouraging them to join the program and help address the issue of mounting fertilizer packaging in landfill.  I also met recently with Jason Robinson of Almond company Select Harvests. The almond industry is keen to be involved in the program.
