The Agrecovery Rural Recycling Programme provides New Zealand's primary sector with responsible and sustainable systems for the recovery and recycling of persistent "on-farm" waste products.
Established in 2005 Agrecovery is a not-for-profit charitable trust put together by primary sector stakeholders. Its nationwide services are available for farmers, growers, contractors, sports turf managers, vet clinics and others within the New Zealand primary sector.
The aim of the programme is to provide a sustainable solution to help manage the sector's impact on the environment and to meet increasing customer demands for best environmental practice.
