Customers can now recycle their Easter egg packaging at Sainsbury’s Hampden Park from March 24 to April 12.

The specially designed Easter recycling facility allows customers to recycle Easter egg packaging – including plastic, card and paper.

The scheme makes it even easier to recycle the packaging from eggs, and includes rigid plastic which not all local kerbside collections accept. The facilities will be available at 400 stores across the UK, including the Hampden Park store .The retailer also runs a Christmas card recycling scheme, which collected 89.1 tonnes of cards last year and amounted to a donation of £15,695 to the Forest Stewardship Council, which helps support the work they do protecting the world’s forests.

Paul Crewe, Sainsbury’s head of sustainability, engineering, energy and environment, said it was a good way of reminding customers to recycle and added, “This is the second year we’ve rolled the scheme out in our larger supermarkets and we’ve had a really positive response from our customers and colleagues. Recycling is an important part of Sainsbury’s environmental commitment.”
