Recycle old Christmas cards at Sainsbury’s Hornchurch

Wondering what to do with all your old Christmas cards now the festive season is coming to an end? Then head to Sainsbury’s Hornchurch.

The store, in High Street, has a Christmas card recycling bin and residents can offload their cards until January 15.

The bin is situated behind the checkouts, with the plastic bag and battery recycling stations.

The store is making a donation to the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) based on the volume of cards collected.

Store manager Andy Deacon said: “We know that 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 once the holidays are over.”
