Learn the Do's and Don'ts of Holiday Recycling

Plus, How-to Recycle Your Tree Curbside for Free!

As the holiday's draw to a close, here's a few tips for proper disposal of unwanted wrapping paper, wreaths and trees!

Holiday Recycling Questions

  • Can glossy holiday gift bags go in the blue cart?
    Paper gift bags can be recycled. Tip: Usually if you can tear the paper fairly easily it will pulp up at the paper mill. Gift bags can be reused or donated to charity.
  • Can cellophane or foil wrapping paper go in the blue cart?
    Non-paper wrapping material should not go in the blue roll carts. Most “foil-like” paper is metallic ink on paper and is accepted with recycling.
  • Can present ribbons be recycled in the blue cart?
    Non-paper ribbons are not accepted (very few ribbons are paper-based).

    Plenty more tips below this break!

Share Your Ideas
Gresham city officials want to hear from the public about the design of the new Rockwood police station. Project architects want to gather community preferences to guide the aesthetics of the new building.

This will be an interactive, drop-in style event (it’s fine to come anytime between 6 and 7:30) with the project architect on-hand. The purpose of the event is to give the design team a good sense of what the community’s preferences regarding the appearance of the building exterior and grounds.

Plan to attend this visioning event and share your ideas for this important addition to our neighborhood.
