Recycle your Christmas cards

Recycle your Christmas cards

When the decorations come down and all the tinsel and lights are packed away for another year, what do you do with all your Christmas cards?

Why not bring them along to your local Co-operative Grand Marché to be recycled?

Rubbish is not a Christmas joke

Every year, 300,000 tonnes of card is used in UK households during the festive season – enough to wrap Big Ben almost 260,000 times.*

You can help us to make a real difference to our environment by recycling your used Christmas cards at our recycling points.

Where can you recycle your Christmas cards?

Find the recycling points at:

  1. Grand Marché St Helier, Jersey
  2. Grand Marché St Peter, Jersey  

What happens to the Christmas cards?

Once collected, the cards are taken to the recycling depot at La Collette. They are then sorted, checked and then exported to a specialist facility in the UK who have the required machinery and space to mulch, wash, form and dry out the paper for it to then be re-used.  

When can the cards be recycled?

The recycling points will be at your local Co-operative Grand Marché between 6 January and 31 January.
