Mars Petcare launches pet food packaging recycling scheme with TerraCycle

The food and pet care giant is opening the initiative to the entire petcare industry to expand the impact of the scheme through wider collaboration.

The Pet Food Recycling Programme will offer pet owners a free solution to transform waste packaging into useful items like park benches and fence posts. The scheme enables consumers to return any eligible packaging in the market for processing.

Through the scheme, pet owners can drop off their used pet food packaging at a number of designated public drop-off locations positioned around the country, or free-post them directly to TerraCycle for recycling.

Once the pouches have been collected, they will be sorted, cleaned and shredded. Any food residue is composted, and the packaging material is turned into small plastic pellets which can be converted into useful plastic items, such as park benches, furniture, fence posts or construction applications.

Deri Watkins, managing director, Mars Petcare UK, said: “It is critical that the petfood industry responds to the challenges around recycling and plastic waste. Businesses like ours need to pioneer new responses to this problem and our new partnership with TerraCycle is an important part of this. However, if we want lasting change we cannot do it alone. As an industry, we are stronger when we work together to tackle common problem.”

Laure Cucuron, general manager, TerraCycle Europe, added: “It’s vital that we work to reduce the amount of packaging that goes to landfill, and making this programme open to any eligible packaging in the market is a significant step towards achieving this.”
