Christmas Card recycling

People are being urged to recycle Christmas cards and wrapping paper to help plant trees across the UK.   

A scheme run by the Woodland Trust saw 600 million cards recycled in recent years and stores including Marks & Spencer and Sainsbury's have set up similar projects.

Recycling boxes will be in stores throughout January (from today), with a tree to be planted for every 1 000 cards recycled.

The M&S stores in Murraygate and at the Gallagher Retail Park are participating and you can read more about the scheme here.
