Ways to Recycle Your Tree
(Including curbside for free!)

With the holiday's upon us, 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!
