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).
