Used Grain Bag Roller - Government Rebate up to $5000

Posted by Eric Anderson Jul 30, 2015

The Government of Saskatchewan has published that . . . .

Plastic Grain Bag Roller BMP

Intent of BMP:

Removing grain from grain bags often occurs during the winter months when snow and ice buildup can make it difficult to remove the bag from the field. Having access to a grain bag roller as the grain is extracted makes consolidation and recycling of the plastic easier and more convenient. The plastic also remains cleaner if immediately rolled which is preferred by the recycling industry. Recycling is an environmentally preferred alternative to burning, burying or taking bags to landfill sites. 

This BMP will assist producers with the purchase of a grain bag roller. The intent of the BMP is to better manage, store and recycle grain bags thereby reducing the environmental risks associated with improper disposal.

Funding Level:

50 per cent of eligible costs to a maximum of $5,000.

Application Type:

Rebate
