Where to recycle your poppy


poppy appeal

Each year over 40 million poppies are produced for use during the Poppy Appeal and Remembrance. Recycling will help to offset some of the cost of producing the poppies and allow more funds to go towards the vital work the Legion does in supporting the whole Armed Forces family.

This year the Royal British Legion has partnered with Sainsbury’s to provide a recycling initiative for the famous paper poppies.

Sainsbury’s are collecting paper poppies after Remembrance Day at their supermarket customer service desks until 24 November, to enable the Legion to re-use or recycle them.

Look out for the distinctively marked collection boxes.
