The following crop plastics can be disposed of:

Disposal criteria*

Separation by group

  • Groups 1 and 2 (see above) must be collected and disposed of separately.
  • Where a product was bought and what brand it is play no role in its disposal.


  • Films must be swept clean and be free of coarse dirt.
  • No foreign particles, such as iron, wood, tires, and no yarn or nets may be mixed up in the films.

* During disposal, a trained inspector of the collection point checks the crop plastics for compliance with these criteria.
