In what is a very challenging Business Environment, I want to reach out to you, to keep you up to date with what is going on at Solway Recycling Limited.

Every business is feeling the impact of COVID 19, but here at Solway Recycling Ltd, we are tackling the issues head-on and have put plans in place to minimise the impact this is having on both our Staff and Customers.

As a Supplier to the Agricultural and Smallholding Industry. We are classed as essential key workers. For the moment or until instructed otherwise, we will continue to operate as best we can.

We very much want to hear from you and are open for business.


With regards to products we will continue to receive and fulfil orders as swiftly as possible. Products are in the main, delivered by a two to three day courier service once they are built.


Regarding Waste Farm Plastic we continue to offer an on farm service to any farmers in need of a collection. We request you have your waste set out where our driver has no need to see or be in contact with anyone on the farm. We will leave out any new liners (if required) and post out all paperwork to avoid contact. So, if a collection is required please book as soon as possible, as new season silage making isn’t far away.


Please find outline of guidelines for farmers collection hubs this Autumn.

To reduce any waiting times and social interaction on site farmers must book a prearranged slot with the Solway Recycling team on 01387 730666.

All materials must be bagged in tote bags or Solway liners.

Longer term this is going to be required as firstly loose material takes much longer to load and causes queues on collection days and secondly the loose plastic carries much more contamination and is much harder to recycle.

Paperwork will be forwarded by post for this round of collections.

.Alternatively, you can book in and deliver it direct to us at Solway Recycling Ltd, just outside Dumfries {address below}.


Any farmers who normally drop their plastic off at our yard can still do so. We ask in the current circumstances if you can please phone to book in prior to arrival. Please note – we required all customers to follow our hand sanitising guidance. Our address is Solway Recycling Ltd, Rigghead Farm, Shawhead, Dumfries, DG2 9SH Tel 01387-730666.

We realise this is very difficult time for everyone, but we are here to help and will work with you to minimise any disruption.

Our Staff are all working under current Government Safety Guidelines.

Should circumstances change, we will contact you as soon as possible. However, it is important we keep talking to each other, in order to make sure we are dealing with your requirements as swiftly as possible.

Please feel free to phone us on 01387-730666 or direct queries by email to

Wishing you and your family all the very best during this difficult time.
