getting rid of old Christmas cards?  
The Irish Peatland Conservation Council will take them, if there's no writing on the back of the picture. They turn them into gift tags that they sell. They recycle the rest.

The address is:
Co. Kildare

They also take stamps, bus refund tickets, postcards and all sorts of things. See here: http://www.ipcc.ie/stamps.html

Or you can send stamps and various handmade stuff (eg knitting, crochet, cross-stich) to http://www.online-angels.org -
Online Angels
Attn: Mary Reinhart
36 Pine Drive
Pottsville, PA 17901

Dublin bus refund tickets can also go to:

Jack and Jill Ticket Appeal

Christchurch Square
Dublin 8

St. Francis Hospice
Station Road
Dublin 5

They all take old mobile phones and printer cartridges, but not necessarily to those address. Check their websites for details.

I believe Tesco take refund tickets too, but I haven't noticed a box myself. Haven't really looked yet though.

I quite often do what the IPCC do and make my own gift tags from old Xmas cards! It seems a shame to just throw the pretty pictures in the bin...

On the bus refund tickets, Tesco in Clare Hall has a St. Francis Hospice collection box for them at the Customer Service desk. I think they have envelopes for sending old mobile phones there, too. Don't know what other Tesco branches may do, though.
