Halifax, Huddersfield, Bradford & District Branch

Recycling for the RSPCA

We’re extremely proud to say that our Branch Is very proactive when it comes to recycling and the environment. We are able to take some of your recyclable items that are not yet part of the usual council recycling collections.

You can donate these items at any of our shops or our Animal Centre based on Wade Street, Halifax HX1 1SN.

Not only will you be helping the environment by donating your recyclable items, you will also help us raise vital funds for the animals in our care.

The items we can currently accept fall into 3 main categories; Pet Food Packaging, Plastic Food Packaging and Ink Cartridges. Please find more details of the items we can accept below:


Pet Food Packaging

To the left are some examples of the types of pet food packaging we are able to collect. These include dry food bags and flexible plastic treat sachets.

In the case of wet food sachets, any donations should be arranged through Cathryn Harris on 07761 986317 as we're not always able to take these at all of our shops for health and safety reasons.






Plastic Food Packaging

We are able to collect very specific types of plastic packaging, such as crisp packets and biscuit wrappers. These are examples of just some of the packaging which is included.

Crisps and Snacks

Please do not twist or fold crisp packets as they need to be flat to be entered into the machine which is used to process them. We can accept both the individual packets and the multipack bags.

Coffee Products

Tassimo coffee pods, Kenco plastic coffee jar lids, L'or coffee capsules and Kenco Eco refill packs are also items we've been collecting for some time and we're the main recycling centre for these in the region. 

Cracker, Cake and Biscuit Wrappers

We can accept all brands of plastic biscuit, cracker and cake wrappers.


Print Cartridges

We've recently started collecting ink cartridges. Due to the components, these are a valuable item worth recycling, especially in bulk. 

The important thing to look for in any cartridges you'd like to donate to us is the presence of a magnetic strip.
