Christmas 2018 - Wrapping Paper

The materials that go into making some wrapping paper result in it not always being accepted for recycling. Before recycling, remove any sticky tape and decorations such as ribbons, bows and string as these cannot be recycled. Wrapping paper can only be recycled if it passes the scrunch test https://www.recyclenow.com/what-to-do-with/wrapping-paper-1

Foil or glitter-decorated paper cannot be recycled and needs to go in the general waste.
