We now accept all Royal Canin food bags for recycling!
Details about the program are below, this information came from the Royal Canin website. (Cans are not accepted but you can recycle those at home! ~thanks)
How our Royal Canin Recycling Program works Pet owners can return their clean and empty ROYAL CANIN® dry food bags and wet-food pouches to participating locations, vet clinics and specialty retailers to be recycled via our program. 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. Our goal in the first year is to prevent 20,000 tonnes of pet food packaging from ending up in landfill and to connect many more pets with their local vet clinic.
At ROYAL CANIN® we’re passionate about creating not just a better world for pets, but a more sustainable and renewable world for us all. The pet food industry is one of the largest industries in the country, producing millions of products packaged in what has been traditionally hard-to-recycle packaging. Some of this packaging ends up in landfill or our oceans, causing significant impact on our environment. That is until now. We’re proud to be leading the way in providing a solution to recycle pet food packaging through our Royal Canin Recycling Program in partnership with TerraCycle.
