Best practices for recycling

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.

What happens to your recyclables

Once collected, the pet food packaging is shredded and melted into hard plastic that can be remolded to make new recycled products. Click here to learn more about the recycling process.
