We appreciate not all councils throughout the UK will recycle all of the bags used for packaging listed above even though it is fully recyclable, this is where we come in! Here at Brinvale we have developed a scheme to ensure everyone can be assured what can be recycled is being recycled.


If this is something you are interested in, this is how it works


1. You request a Royal Mail mailing bag with your next order either on the phone or in the special delivery instructions section

2. You store the recyclable bags (as listed above) received with your bird food

3. When you have no more than 1.9kg of bags (this is approximately 17 x large bags, or 22 x 13kg bags

4. Place these inside the Royal Mail mailing bag (ensure it does not weigh over 2kg in total) seal the bag and take to a post office, send the package second class addressed to

5. Remember to include a note inside so we know who has returned their bags

6. Brinvale will happily use the recycling facilities here at our farm to ensure these are disposed of in the correct manner.

7. Brinvale will also give you Wild Bird Food FOC to the value of the cost of posting the package, alternatively, you can select to donate this amount to the British Trust of Ornithology (BTO) which helps fund the research of Britain’s Bird populations as well as the conservation of their habitats.
