Recycling Tips for a Green Holiday

Between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day, Americans generate 25 percent more trash than other times of the year.

Many items used during the holidays can be recycled, including greeting cards, wrapping paper, cardboard, glass and metal food containers, and some packing materials. Exceptions include tissue paper, tinsel, ornaments, styrofoam blocks or peanuts, paper towels, napkins, plates, cups, and anything with food residue.
