No wrapping paper permitted in blue bags

The City of Abbotsford is advising residents that the recycling program's blue bags containing wrapping paper will not be collected.

Christmas wrapping paper cannot be recycled due to low-quality paper and the number of contaminants.

The city suggest that when wrapping presents, consider alternatives such as reusable gift bags, tins, shopping bags or newspapers instead.
