SAINSBURY'S Urmston is providing residents with a solution to make use of their Christmas cards this year.

The Eden Square store has a Christmas card recycling bin in place and residents can bring in their cards there until January 15.

The bin is situated at the foyer and Sainsbury's is making a donation to the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) based on the volume of cards collected.

Sainsbury's store manager, Bob Pepper, 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."

The store also offers other recycling facilities, including for batteries.
