We’re able to collect some of the items which are recyclable, yet not in the usual council recycling collections. This means we get to be environmentally responsible while also raising some extra money for the charity. You can donate these items at any of our shops or our Halifax animal centre.
The items we can currently accept fall into 3 main categories; Pet Food Packaging, Plastic Food Packaging and Ink Cartridges. More details of the exact items which we collect are given below.
1. 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.
2. Ink 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.
3. 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.
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.
