Recycling For Pets

Joules Wellington Boots

\\\ #Recycle #Reuse

It’s so important that we find uses for our old unwanted treasures.

– and not to throw items away at local recycling points.

We’ve highlighted a few ways that items can be reused for pet care in our blogs.

Recycling Duvets

Surprisingly duvets are a ‘challenge’ to recycle and UK’s reycling points do not really want them deposited with them but for owners to find other ways to recycle them.

Our blog provides ways that you can recycle these to animal shelters and charity shops with tips on how to find these locations.

If you want to give these away, we provide the best online free websites to dispose of them quickly and locally.

Recycling Wellington Boots

Wellies – are the shortened name for wellington boots in the UK and where no dog walker living in the countryside would be without them. However trying to recycle damaged wellies is quite a task.

There are only two retailer initiatives that we’ve found currently for recycling if you’re wellies are damaged, otherwise it’s a case of processing these at your nearest recycling point. If handy, you can upcycle them with ideas on how to do this.

Wearable wellies can be donated to charity shops, (with exceptions), or advertised online and we’ve provided the best ways to do this if your immediate family or friends do not need a spare pair.

Recycling Pillows and Cushions

Many pillows and cushions are not environmentally friendly being made of synthetic fibres and are difficult to recycle.

Recycle Now is responsible for directing the public to their local recycling plant, but provides this statement –

Duvets and pillows are not recyclable; however some animal charities may be able to use them for bedding. Otherwise, they should be put in the general waste.

Animal shelters and charities are very grateful for donations and you can read more about how to pack the items and where to find these outlets. You can advertise your pillows and cushions for pet owners on free online platforms to collect locally, and other ways you can use them around the home or friends and family pets.
