4 Recycling Tips For The Holidays

🎵🎵 And may all your Christmases be green… 🎵🎵

We gotta bone to pick with you, Santa. Handing out coal? REALLY?! Stop making Mama Earth sad, Mr. Claus. #CancelSanta

Just kidding. We love ya, Big Guy! We also love recycling and keeping the planet green. Here are some tips for post-holiday cleanup this year.

How To Recycle Christmas Lights

Don’t throw those old lights in the trash! To properly recycle your Christmas lights, simply drop them off at your nearest recycling center. We have a recycling center in Burnsville and we’ll gladly recycle your Christmas lights for you.

Can I Recycle Christmas Wrapping Paper?

Unfortunately, wrapping paper isn’t recyclable. If you’re interested in a fun alternative to wrapping paper, one option is to use paper grocery bags. This creates a rustic burlap appearance for your gifts and you can just toss the paper in the recycling bin after the gifts have been torn open.

What’s The Best Way To Dispose Of My Christmas Tree?

Sometimes people put them on the curb for a pickup, but the beauty of real trees is that they can be recycled as firewood or compost. It’s free and gives you more value out of your purchase.

How About Fake Christmas Trees? Can You Recycle Those?

Absolutely! If you bring your fake Christmas tree to us, we’ll properly recycle it for ya. The Scott County Hazardous Waste Facility is also accepting drop-offs this year.
