Dear Supporters,

Thank you so much for your overwhelming support and enthusiasm for the Terracycle scheme this year, we have managed to recycle a phenomenal number of sachets this year and hope to continue to do so throughout 2020. Together we have raised nearly £100 and recycled nearly 10,000 pouches, that’s 10,000 pouches not in landfill, which is amazing! 

As we will soon be closing for Christmas (23rd – 29th December) *we will not* be able to take any more sachets for recycling from now until we reopen and *we will not* be accepting sachets whilst we are closed. *Please do not* post or drop off any sachets whilst we are closed, we have no facility for them to be stored before we come back - once we have returned we will resume recycling as normal. 

For those that are interested in starting to recycle your pet food packaging with us we can accept the following: plastic wet food pouches and plastic dry food bags. We cannot recycle: foil trays, tins, hard plastics, paper based food bags, non-pet food packaging (any human food packaging) most of the other types of pet foods (foil,tin,paper) can be recycled as part of your normal recycling but please check with your local council to be sure. Please ensure all plastic pet food packaging that you wish to recycle is completely clean and dry before bringing in/posting. 

From all the staff & cats at North London - we wish you all a very Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year!

01 November 2021

The scheme is now coming to an end, and regrettably this means we will no longer have a way of recycling your packaging. Our final boxes will be collected mid-November, so if you have any...

As of 12th April 2021 we’ve helped 566 cats through our new way of working. This is continuing for at ...
