KEEN recyclers are being asked to make the most of any unwanted Christmas gifts by taking them along to a supermarket.
As part of a drive to reduce unnecessary waste, South Cambridgeshire District Council (SCDC) and Cambridgeshire Community Reuse and Recycling Network have organised a Jolly Green Santa.
As part of the scheme any unwanted Christmas gifts can be taken to Morrisons supermarket in Cambourne on Thursday, January 8 from 10am to 3pm.
The unwanted gifts including books, clothes, toys and games will then be passed on to charities and community groups.

The environmentally-friendly initiative will mean fewer unwanted gifts will end up in the bin and landfill sites.
Cllr Sue Ellington, SCDC environmental services portfolio holder said: "It's always wonderful to receive gifts, but sometimes you find you are unable to use them. This is a great way to ensure someone else can benefit from your unwanted presents."
