Green tractor scheme

The Green Tractor Scheme was founded by a group of agricultural plastic recycling specialists with a shared ambition: to standardize the UK farming industry’s approach to recycling all agricultural plastics by 2030. This initiative emerged from a collective need to address the pressing issue of agricultural plastic waste and promote sustainable farming practices.

Our Story

The Founding Vision

In 2020, after years of working in the agricultural waste management sector, our founding members recognized the critical need for a dedicated effort to educate and empower the farming community. This realization led to the creation of the Green Tractor Scheme, with a clear mission to ensure that all agricultural plastic waste is recycled by 2030. Our strategy focuses on three main areas:

  1. Education: We aim to educate farmers on correctly separating and presenting waste.
  2. Collaboration: We work closely with recyclers to enhance their efficiency and effectiveness.
  3. Advocacy: We lobby the government to eliminate unnecessary plastics from the supply chain.

Setting the Standard

With the ambitious target of 2030, the Green Tractor Scheme is actively working to set industry standards. We are committed to recruiting every agricultural business to take responsibility for their role in transforming the environment and the industry.
