The Dos and Don’ts of Holiday Recycling

We’re literally only days away from one of Minnesota’s favorite holidays – Christmas! With the holiday season comes plenty of cocktail parties, present-wrapping sessions, and holiday dinners. Unfortunately, with all that jubilation comes a whole bunch of waste. And while many leftover bits and bobs are recyclable, you might be surprised to discover that some items have no place in a recycling bin.

How are you supposed to know what goes in and what stays out? Well, that’s what these handy-dandy holiday tips are all about. So, grab a cup of cocoa, kick up your feet, and learn a few dos and don’ts of holiday recycling. Mama Earth will thank you!

Christmas Wrapping Paper

You know all that ripped-up wrapping paper you toss in the trash after Christmas morning is over? Most of it can be recycled.

Christmas Envelopes and Cards

It feels great getting Christmas cards from friends, family, and co-workers. It can feel even better to recycle them.

Real Christmas Trees

Nothing says, “the holidays are here,” like putting your Christmas tree up (hopefully after Thanksgiving 😉). But what should you do with your live Christmas tree once the holiday is over and presents are unwrapped?

Fake Christmas Trees

Artificial trees are great because they look real and can be reused many times. Unfortunately, they don’t last forever.

Unwanted or Old Toys

Seeing the joy on a child’s face when you give them your favorite toy is a priceless moment. However, kids can be quite fickle and, within a week or two, might not even want to play with their new action figure or doll.

Christmas Lights

Who doesn’t love to go looking at Christmas lights as the holiday gets closer? Christmas lights make the season bright and merry, but you must be cautious when recycling them.
