Wrapping paper is not recyclable

While wrapping paper may look nice under the tree, it is not welcome in the city’s recycling program.

Once all the presents are unwrapped, residents should not put the paper into their regular recycling blue bags.

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

Those who leave out blue bags with wrapping paper for curbside pickup will not have their recycling collected by the city.
