The donation helps to ensure Sainsbury’s maintain its commitment to ‘No Waste to Landfill’. The retailer achieved zero waste to landfill at all stores in 2013 and customers can also recycle batteries, mixed paper and card, mixed cans, mixed glass and plastics throughout 2014 at the Sale store’s recycling centre, which complements existing kerbside collections. Meanwhile, customers can also recycle their clothing and other items like DVDs and books at the recycling centre to support Oxfam.
The store will also be working closely with Trafford Carer’s Centre, Cornerstone Centre, Target Pop Up Café and City Centre Ministries through charity collections and food donations.
