Recycling the packaging
Bord na Móna Horticulture's retail bags are based on LDPE (low density polyethylene) and are suitable for recycling. When finished using the bag, remove any excessive product remnants. Then segregate and sort the used packaging into a suitable plastic recycling stream.
Recycling the hoods
Bord na Móna Horticulture's retail hoods are based on LDPE (low density polyethylene) which is suitable for recycling. After removing the hood, segregate and sort the used hood into a suitable plastic recycling stream.
Responsible disposal of pallets
In the event that our pallets need to be disposed of, they will need to be segregated and sorted into a suitable wood recycling stream or suitable wood reuse stream.
Pallet handling statement
We conduct strict operating procedures to ensure that only pallets of the necessary structural integrity are used. The correct handling of pallets and the inspection of our pallets is maintained at all stages of our processes. Likewise we carefully select our transit contractors to ensure that our pallets reach our customers in the best possible condition. At subsequent stages, the pallets need to continue to be correctly handled, and regularly inspected, to maximise the integrity of our products.
Pallet safety statement
In consultation with our pallet providers, and with our customer base, our finished product heights and weights have been carefully chosen to ensure that our products can be handled and stored safely at all times.
Please consult our pallet weight and height chart in this regards. If using elevated storage always consult with your pallet racking provider about safe storage limits. Do not remove any hooding or shrink-wrapping from around our products unless the pallet is always going to stay on ground level.
Given the nature of our product offering some of our products will marginally overhang the base pallet. Some care may accordingly need to be exercised when handling the products in this regard. Our pallet configurations are always selected to ensure that overhang is minimised & storage capacities are unaffected.
Removing the pallet wrapping
Bord na Móna Horticulture recommends that a suitably sharp implement is used to help safely to remove the hooder or stretch-wrapping from around our products. Please be careful not to cut too deep, as the product packaging underneath can be easily damaged.
