Wrapping paper containing foil, plastic, or glitter belongs in your REFUSE bin.


Please Remember: If the paper bounces back after being scrunched, it cannot be recycled.

Hints and Tips: Why not try plain wrapping paper, or even better, fabric wraps and reusable bags.

Fact: Every Christmas, it is estimated that we throw away over 108 million rolls of wrapping paper in the UK. That’s enough to cover over 11,000 football pitches.
