Supermarkets offer Christmas card recycling scheme
5:00pm Friday 4th January 2013 in News
PEOPLE can go green and recycle their Christmas cards at Sainsbury’s stores at Amblecote and Merry Hill.
The stores, situated in Sandringham Way and Merry Hill shopping centre, have card recycling bins in place until January 15.
The bins are situated at the front entrance to the stores and Sainsbury’s will be making a donation to the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) based on the volume of cards collected.
Sainsbury’s Amblecote store manager Vernon Dix said: “We know our customers care about the environment and reducing their impact on landfill, so we’re providing really simple and hassle-free ways for them to live more sustainably and recycle their Christmas-waste now the holidays are over.”
The stores are also offering a safe way for customers to recycle other items such as batteries.
