Until Monday, customers can recycle their Christmas cards via a collection point at the front entrance of store.

Online customers can have their cards collected from their homes when they receive their online shop.

Sainsbury’s will recycle all collected Christmas cards and make a donation to FSC UK.

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