Well, the post office will do, as replied earlier. however, why do you think of disposing them? there is a lot of creative stuff that can be done out of those cards. Moreover, i just don't find disposing off your cards as a very aesthetically pleasing idea.

The supermarket collections only run to the end of January. You can recycle them with cardboard, but why not offer them on freecycle to someone who might use them or turn them into gift tags for next year?

Last year I made these with my old Christmas cards

This year I'm going to try making bunting with them, which I think will involve cutting them into triangles, punching two holes in them and threading ribbon through. Also spotted these which look cute.
