Can this be recycled? How about this?
Bows & Ribbon – NOT recyclable (check out this site for wrapping ideas)
Greeting Cards – cards printed on photo paper & cards with foil or glitter are NOT recyclable; plain paper cards ARE recyclable.
Live Christmas Trees – search our online recycling guide to find a recycler nearby. Communities often organize tree drop-offs after the holidays, so keep an eye out for that as well!
Tissue Paper, Packing Peanuts, and Foam Wrapping Sheets – all NOT recyclable (but great for re-use!)
Bubble Wrap – recycled ONLY at participating grocery stores that collect shopping bags and other plastic film (NOT in curbside bins)
