RESIDENTS have just four days left to ensure their Christmas cards do not go to waste.

A card recycling bin is currently in place at Sainsbury's car park in Redditch and will remain there until January 15. Once the collection is complete, a donation will be made to the Forest Stewardship Council based on the amount handed in.

Store manager Sharon Neal said: "We know 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 now the holidays are over."

Batteries, aluminium, clothing, glass and plastic can all also be recycled at Sainsbury's.
