Our Eco Credentials

At the RSPCA Manchester & Salford Branch we try hard to do our bit for the environment.

At the Animal Centre

  • All soiled hay and small animal waste is taken to a local allotment for composting
  • All uneaten cat food goes for composting.
  • We use recycled plastic bin bags
  • We recycle all cardboard, paper and newspaper – even newspaper that has lined a litter tray!
  • We use biodegradable disposable aprons.
  • Staff and volunteers use disinfectable, communal footwear to reduce use of disposable foot covers.
  • We use Cruelty-Free International endorsed products.
  • We drink Fair trade tea and coffee.
  • We use ‘Who Gives a Cr@p’ ethical toliet roll 

At our shops

  • Unsold stock is transferred to a different shop within the branch for another chance to be sold.
  • Clothing, accessories, jewellery and soft furnishings that are not suitable for sale in the shops are sold on to a third-party recycling company.
  • CDs/DVDs/Blu-rays that are in poor condition are sold to a company to be restored and re-sold.
  • Items made of metal that are unsuitable for sale in the shops are recycled.
  • Electrical items that are faulty or in poor condition are recycled.
