Recycle your flexible plastic pet food packaging!

28 December 2019
Recycle your flexible plastic pet food packaging! Every year countless pieces of flexible plastic pet food packaging end up in landfill sites across the UK. Cats Protection's Belfast Adoption Centre are working with TerraCycle to put an end to this enormous loss of resources.

The Purina Pet Food Recycling Programme allows us to recycle your flexible plastic pet food packaging and prevent them from ending up in landfill.

Not only are you helping the environment, but the waste you recycle with us also helps to fund the work we do.

It couldn't be easier to recycle your plastic pet food packaging with us! Just follow these 3 simple steps:

1. Collect your flexible plastic pet food packaging (including wet food pouches and dry food packaging).

2. Drop off your washed and dried* flexible pet food packaging at the Belfast Adoption Centre, and we will send them to TerraCycle who will turn them into new plastic products like park benches, picnic tables or playground equipment.

3. The flexible plastic pet food packaging sent will allow us to earn points which will be redeemed as a financial donation towards the shelter, food and veterinary treatment of the cats in our care.

For further information please contact the Belfast Adoption Centre on 028 9048 0202 or belfast@cats.org.uk

You can find out more about the scheme from Terracycle's website here: Purina Pet Food Recycling Scheme

*Please note - donated flexible pet food packaging must be well washed out and dried thoroughly before being donated into the Belfast Adoption Centre for inclusion in the scheme. Thank you.
