Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
Most of our bird food comes from our suppliers in plastic bags, which are not currently recycled by Dumfries & Galloway Council.
In order to try and reduce the amount of single-use plastic going to landfill, we are offering the following options:
- Paper bags. We will soon be stocking heavy duty paper bags, which we can fill while you wait. Depending on the durability and popularity of the paper bags, we hope to use them for more of our range.
- Bring your own container to fill. We are happy to put bird food into a container you bring with you. We're looking at how we can provide loose bird food by the kilo, but currently we can only supply in the standard bag weights. For most products, this is 3kg, 6kg, 10/12kg. Please see individual products for the available weights.
- Return your empty bag for either refilling or recycling (FREE). We will take back empty plastic bags from products bought from us.* If we can't reuse them, we send them to Solway Recycling, a specialist plastic recycling facility just outside Dumfries.
