Yara Finland and 4H organized a project where young people in Finland collect plastic nitrogen fertilizer sacks that are then recycled. Learn more about Yara at http://www.yara.com/sustainability/ci...
Yara's 40-kilo fertilizer sacks, protective hoods for fertilizer pallets and its large bags are gathered up by about 1,000 young people every year. The service is free for farmers.
In 2010, 520,000 kilos of fertilizer sacks were recovered in this way and used as raw materials in the plastics industry. Thirty million kilos of plastic from fertilizer sacks have been recovered over more than three decades.
