Sainsbury’s has invited people to recycle their poppies at its in-store collection points in Crawley and Horley.
A spokesman for the retailer said all the paper poppies it collects in Queensway, Crawley town centre, Crawley Avenue, West Green and Bonehurst Road, Horley, until November 24 will be re-used or recycled by The Royal British Legion.
West Green’s Store Manager, Richard Hay 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 another way they can support.
“The Royal British Legion to ensure their poppies don’t go to waste. We hope the recycling drive proves a success with our Crawley customers.”
Louise Ajdukiewicz, Head of Corporate Partnerships at The Royal British Legion added: “We’re delighted to be working with Sainsbury’s again on this recycling initiative.
“The donated poppies will either be reused or recycled, so it’s another great way for Sainsbury’s customers to support us further.”
