Recycle Open Farm pet food bags through this program.
TerraCycle® and Open Farm have partnered to create a free recycling program for Open Farm pet food packaging, as well as a fundraising opportunity for participants
Participating is completely free and very easy.
When you are ready to send in a shipment, download a shipping label from your TerraCycle account by clicking "Ship us your waste" and follow the prompts. Your shipping label will be emailed to your inbox. Print out your label and tape it securely onto your box. Ship the box to TerraCycle by calling UPS at 1-800-PICK-UPS, informing UPS that you have a “Pre-paid Return Ship” label on a parcel that needs to be scheduled for a next business day pick up. Please ensure not to ship the box on your own UPS account, or you may be charged shipping fees.
Program accepted waste: Open Farm Freeze Dried Raw packaging, Open Farm Dry Dog Food packaging, Open Farm Dog Treat packaging, and Open Farm Dry Cat Food packaging
In order to recycle this waste stream properly, please make sure all excess product has been removed (i.e. leftover pet food). Additionally, if you choose to rinse your product, please note that it must be completely dry prior to shipping. You cannot ship dripping packages.
The dog food bags are cleaned and melted into a hard plastic that can be remolded to make new recycled products. Click here to learn more about the recycling process.
