Don’t let holiday gift wrap, boxes and cards go to waste – please recycle

Each year, Americans spend about $2.6 billion on gift wrap. Most of it is discarded, adding about 5 million tons to landfills around the holidays, or about 24% more trash than usual.

But in O’Fallon, these and many more items can be recycled, particularly wrapping paper, paper gift bags, cardboard boxes, cartons, and greeting cards. And most plastic and metal beverage and food containers also are recyclable – just look for the recycling logo on the package.
