Sainsbury’s customers in Great Yarmouth can recycle their Christmas cards in the store until Monday, January 8.

The store is providing a Christmas card recycling service at the front of the building to support the Forest Stewardship Council® UK (FSC® UK) to help protect the world’s forests.

Sainsbury’s will recycle all collected Christmas cards and make a donation to FSC® UK to support its work to promote responsible management of the world’s forests.

Sainsbury’s Great Yarmouth store manager Joanne Richardson said: “We’ve always had a brilliant response from customers and we hope to collect even more cards this year.

“The recycling initiative is a great way to support the invaluable work of the FSC® and help customers to tackle Christmas waste and put it to positive use.”

Nationally last year Sainsbury’s customers donated more than 98 tonnes of Christmas cards to be recycled.
