PEOPLE are being urged to recycle their Christmas cards.
The Woodland Trust conservation charity has joined forces with shops chain WH Smith to run a recycling campaign.
Smiths are setting up collection points in all their stores - including Huddersfield - where people can drop off their old Christmas cards during January.
Tesco - which has stores in Huddersfield and Brighouse - is also taking part.
It is the fourth year running that the organisations have joined forces for the scheme.
Last year, they recycled 45m cards - equal to 883 tonnes of cardboard.
As well as saving resources, the scheme raises money to pay for new trees to be planted through the Woodland Trust's Tree for All scheme.
This aims to plant 12m trees in the UK over the next five years.
Simon Marinker, WH Smith stores director, said: "We want to recycle even more cards in 2005.
"This way we can help the Woodland Trust and give every child the chance to plant trees."
