Easter recycling scheme at supermarket

By a County Press reporter

Saturday, April 19, 2014

 

ISLANDERS will be able to recycle their Easter egg packaging and support an environmental charity at the same time at an Isle of Wight supermarket.

Sainsbury's will have a special recycling point at its Newport store until the end of the month.

People will be able to drop off, foil, plastic and cardboard from their eggs for recycling.

The retailer will make a donation to the Forest Stewardship Council based on the volume of packaging collected.

Last year the scheme led to a £9,000 donation to the FSC nationally.
