This sustainability initiative supports the Petstock Group's commitment to People, Pets and the Planet and gives us the opportunity to make a meaningful positive difference to the planet.
Selected Petstock stores have a collection box that customers can then place their clean, accepted, used pet packaging in. We then work behind the scenes with TerraCycle to recycle these products, using a circular economy method, turning these products into reusable items such as park benches, dog agility equipment and frisbees.
Any brand of pet dry food bags and pet wet food pouches can be recycled through the program. All wet food pouches must be clean as TerraCycle cannot process them if they still contain food.
TerraCycle is a world leader with over 20 years of experience in the collection, recycling, and repurposing of complex waste streams. TerraCycle partners with leading consumer product companies to recycle products and packaging that would otherwise end up being landfilled or incinerated.
Once collected, the packaging is sorted, shredded, cleaned, and melted into pellets which can be re-moulded to create new recycled products such as plastic lumber for outdoor furniture, decking and more!
