Residents in Mildenhall are being encouraged to do their bit for the environment by recycling their old Christmas cards and wrapping paper at a supermarket in the town.

Until Tuesday, January 13, the town’s branch of Sainsbury’s will be running a collection box at the front of the store for both used cards and wrapping paper.

The collected cards will be recycled by Sainsbury’s and based on the number of cards collected nationwide a donation will be made to the Forest Stewardship Council.

“We had a good response from our customers last year and with their help we’re hoping to make an even bigger contribution this time,” said Alan Bedwell, store manager.
