Not compulsory. Recycling farm plastic is compulsory for cross compliance. We use an alternative recycling service than the one that you pay the levy to.
I’m confused, why do all merchants and coops sell plastic with the levy included in the price so? Can they opt out of this or is your plastic coming from a non eu member state.....
We pay for the recycling service also and it’s not frs

I don't know. My wrap comes from monaghan. Iffpg get the levy that is collected on rolls of wrap. Frs used to collect wrap. They got none of the levy. They don't do it anymore. There is no law that states that you have to buy wrap with a levy on it. The only rule is in Cross compliance where you have to be able to show a receipt to prove that you recycle your wrap.
