The Community Collection Hub network is a network of locations around Australia where members of the community can take their 'non-recyclable' waste to be recycled with TerraCycle.

Can't find a Community Collection Hub in your area?

Why not contact your local vet to ask them to participate on behalf of the community? Alternatively, you can let us know by emailing

How it works

Participating is completely free and very easy.


  1. Collect your empty pet food packaging in any plastic bag you have available.
  2. Use the Community Collection Hubs map to find a vet clinic near you. 
  3. Seal up your bag of waste and drop it off to a clinic.

What you can recycle in this program

Program accepted waste: Dry pet food bags and wet pet food pouches. Please ensure the packaging is empty and clean before recycling. 


Other brands of dry pet food bags and wet pet food pouches can also be recycled through this program. 

Best practices for recycling

When dropping off at a vet clinic please ensure your waste is in a sealed plastic bag to help the hub manage smells and leaks. 

What happens to the waste

Once collected, the pet food bags are cleaned and shredded. They are then melted down and pelletised to be recycled into new products. Click here for more information about our recycling process.



As thanks for your dedication to diverting waste from landfills, a $1 donation will be made to Seeing Eye Dogs for every kilogram of accepted waste sent through this program.
