Recycle pet food & snack packaging

If you can’t tear the paper holding your pet food, it can’t be recycled with your regular recycling. If the pet food bag is labeled plastic #2 or #4, you can recycle it with your other plastic film recycling. Metal cans are recyclable.

Pet Supplies Plus in at Traverse Mountain in Lehi is the only place semi-locally I can find that collects pet food and snack packaging for recycling. Any brand for any species of pet is acceptable.

Terracycle does have a handful of free mail-in programs for certain pet food brands, click here to see if the brand you use is one of them. If not, they sell a zero waste box to recycle any brand and size of pouch, bag, box, or container used for packaging pet food, treats, and vitamins.

Pet products

  • Rocco & Roxie. This local company offers pet treats, shampoo, and products for cleaning up after your furry friends. Their Stain & Odor Eliminator spray has 110K+ reviews on Amazon; I’ve used it on carpet spots and it works like a charm. Odor is gone and the dog doesn’t return to the spot.
