Recycling with Terracycle
We have teamed up with TerraCycle®, Bakers®, Felix® and Purina® to create a free recycling programme for pet food plastic pouches and flexible plastic bags. You can drop off your pet food packaging across selected Cats Protection centres and charity shops.
The centre collects flexible, plastic pet food & treat packaging for ANY pets - cat, dog, bird, guinea pig food, rabbit etc.
We accept biscuit bags, meat pouches, treat bags, as long as it's flexible and from pet food/treats. In return for sending the recycling to Terracycle, the centre raises much needed funds for the cats in our care.
All we ask is that any meat packaging is washed out before donating. Unwashed or poorly washed meat packaging smells awful and attracts rats and they have been known to destroy our other equipment at the centre!
Donations can be dropped in our recycling bin at the AC, we'd love you to get involved to help support the centre and the environment.
If you can't get them to us, why not bag these items up and drop them in one of our donation stations located around West Norfolk (current list below). PLEASE make sure you bag your wrappers into a carrier bag or similar. If they are put in loose, people may think our donation station is a litter bin!
