Follow these tips to make sure you correctly recycle this holiday season:

  • Bows and Ribbons – Any bows, ribbons, or other stringy material does not belong in your recycling bin. Choose to reuse or create bows out of plain wrapping paper.
  • Wrapping paper Plain wrapping paper CAN be recycled. Wrapping paper that contains glitter, foil, or other foreign materials CANNOT be recycled.
  • Plastic wrap – Bubble wrap and other plastic packaging materials are not recyclable. Reuse packaging materials and toss what you can’t reuse in the trash.
  • Keep your recyclables dry – Keep the lid closed on your recycling bin this winter. Flatten or cut down any boxes that may not allow your lid to close all the way.
  • Electronics – Dispose your old electronics correctly. Check with your county’s Household Hazardous Waste department for safe disposal instructions.
