Local AM Supports Farmers Over Plastic Recycling

Local Assembly Member for Monmouth, Nick Ramsay, is supporting members of the farming community who are experiencing problems recycling their plastic waste. It seems that the recycling plant that used to pay the collection company for their plastic waste has now decided to charge the collection company.

Speaking about this issue today Nick said: “ Whilst the Welsh Government is probably technically correct that this is a commercial contract between farmers and the private sector, it will clearly cause environmental damage if farmers are forced to bury or burn their plastic waste, so this must be an issue for Welsh Government.

“It must be better to avert this situation and potential damage to our environment altogether. I’ll be calling on the Welsh Government to intervene and help find a solution to this problem as soon as possible. Our hard-working farmers need support with this issue.”
