Sainsbury's stores across Exeter are providing local residents with a solution to make use of their Christmas cards this year.
The stores, situated in the Guildhall Shopping Centre, at Pinhoe and Alphington now have Christmas card recycling bins in place and residents can bring in their cards at any stage from now until 15 January.
The bins are situated conveniently for customers to find and Sainsbury's is making a donation to the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) based on the volume of cards collected.
Sainsbury's Store Manager at Guildhall, Leigh Nicholls 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."
Andy Dawe, head of food & drink programme, WRAP said: "We are delighted that Sainsbury's in Exeter are working with its customers to help them find ways to recycle during the festive season.
"Such a wide range of Christmas items can be recycled, from your Christmas turkey foil to your Christmas cards. To find out more about what can be recycled where you live visit www.recyclenow.com."
