How to recycle pet blankets and beds

  • Old pet blankets or beds made from fabric can be recycled with textiles at a recycling centre;

  • Plastic animal beds should be recycled with plastics – ask an operative at the recycling centre to find out which container to put it in.

Good to know

Some local councils may allow used hay, straw and sawdust bedding from 'vegetarian' animals such as rabbits or guinea pigs to be put in garden waste collections or accept it with garden waste at household waste recycling centres.
