There’s just a few more days left for people to recycle their Christmas cards at Sainsbury’s in Mildenhall.

Customers have until Monday, January 8, via an in-store collection point which is located on the window ledge behind the checkouts at the store in Recreation Way and it is supporting Forest Stewardship Council® UK (FSC® UK) to help protect the world’s forests.

Collection boxes will be in over 1,000 Sainsbury’s supermarkets and convenience stores throughout the country. Online customers can also have their cards collected from their homes when they receive their online shop, making it easier to recycle and help reduce the amount of waste going to landfill.

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. Last year, customers donated more than 98 tonnes of cards.

Sainsbury’s Mildenhall duty manager Paul Greff 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”.
