Pet food is categorized as organic waste and should not be thrown in the landfill. Instead, there are several responsible methods of disposal:

  • Composting: If your pet food is made from natural ingredients without any additives or preservatives, it can be composted. Make sure to remove any packaging or non-compostable materials before adding it to your compost pile.
  • Donation: If your pet food is still within its expiration date and in good condition, consider donating it to local animal shelters or rescue organizations. They often accept donations of pet food to help feed animals in need.
