Recycle your poppies at local Sainsbury’s store

RESIDENTS can recycle their poppies at Sainsbury’s Coleraine

Following the fundraising success of The Royal British Legion’s Poppy Appeal, customers can make their poppies go further this year at the local Sainsbury’s.

For the first time,the Riverside store is providing a recycling service to support The Royal British Legion, the UK’s leading Armed Forces charity.

Up to Sunday, November 24, customers can choose to recycle their poppies via an in-store collection point. During this time, a poppy recycling box will be available at the Customer Service Desk and all poppies that have been returned will be sent to The Royal British Legion to enable them to re-use or recycle them.

Sainsbury’s Store Manager Gillian Ekin said: “The Poppy Appeal was a great success this year for fundraising and we’d like to thank everyone who contributed.

“With this recycling initiative, we wanted to show our customers that they can make their poppy go further and enable the Legion to save.

“We hope the recycling drive proves a success with our Coleraine customers”.
