One of the business initiatives that we are working on is Farm Plastic Recycling in Sutherland.
The recycling of farm / croft plastic is a difficult in Sutherland and other rural areas. The recycling companies that are available in Scotland do not provide cost effective solutions for Sutherland.

However, in the mean time, we are really happy to have engaged with another initiative run through SAGES and have a couple of students working with us now. We’ve been getting into a bit more detail and are currently running a confidential survey.
If you are a farmer or crofter in Sutherland, please fill in our
