Vaxipack® Recycling

MSD Animal Health has an exciting new sustainability initiative that we are introducing in collaboration with Agrecovery and Elanco to help reduce plastic waste on farms .

Expanding on the established collection of the high-density plastic drums used for drenches, dips and agrichemicals, we are now excited to include two further streams of plastic collection, including MSD’s plastic Vaxipacks® and Elanco’s metabolic bags and Calpro Bolus tubes.

Farmers can drop empty MSD Vaccine Vaxipacks® in collection bins at participating vet clinics and rural retailers, and we’ll take care of the rest ensuring the plastic is repurposed and doesn’t end up in landfill.

The following MSD Vaxipacks® can be recycled:

Look out for our collection bins in-store

For details of the participating vet clinics and rural retailers near you, contact the MSD Animal Health Customer Services team on T: 0800 800 543 / E: or refer to the list below (last updated 14/11/2022).
