Recycling news

07 January 2020
Recycling news YOU can now recycle your pet food pouches by bringing them along to the Forth Valley Cats Protection Adoption Centre at Fishcross.
And every pouch you bring us is worth money for the cats.
At the centre we are now recyling all our cat food pouches.
If an average cat has 2 sachets of wet food a day that means that cat goes through 730 plastic sachets a year, and sadly most of those sachets aren't widely recyclable.
The images of plastic polluting the planets seas, oceans etc are becoming an all too common thing that we see - it can often feel like there is nothing we can do to help stop this, but there are small changes we can make to help stop plastic pollution.  That's where Terracycle comes in.
Terracycle runs a scheme where they will accept any type of pet food packaging (both wet food sachets and dry food packaging) and recycle it!
Make sure the packets are clean and dry. 
You can hand them into the shelter any day or bring them along with you during opening hours Fri-Sun 12.30-3.30pm.
If you would like to learn more about the scheme or find out about other collection points near you then check out the link
