Recycling Tips for the Holiday Season

  1. Purchase gifts that require less packaging.
  2. Remember that not all packaging is recyclable; bubble wrap and Styrofoam should go in your garbage bin.
  3. Remove items from cardboard boxes and break them down to create more space in your bin.
  4. Do not stuff your bin full as it may not release during the dumping process.
  5. Use old newspaper to wrap gifts.
  6. Take all oversized packaging to the recycling depot locations in the city.
  7. Give experiences as a gift to help reduce waste, such as tickets, gift cards, memberships, or a trip to the spa.
  8. Reuse old gift wrap, bags, tissue paper and use old cards as gift tags.
  9. Use old shoe boxes, glass jars and cookie tins as a container for a gift.
  10. Make a donation to a local charity in lieu of a more traditional gift.
  11. Buy items that can be reused several times.
  12. Clear space in your closet by donating clothing to a charity.
