The City of Regina warns residents to be careful while recycling their gift wrap this holiday season.
The City is encouraging people to recycle, but only plain wrapping paper.
Lisa Legault, Director of Solid Waste with the City says certain wrapping paper and gift bags are not appropriate for the blue bin.
“Wrapping paper has a lot of non-recyclable content,” explains Legault. “The glitter, the foil, the metallic and cellophanes, the glossy gift bags with rope handles.”
The City asks residents to remove all tape and ribbons from the any recyclable paper before tossing it in the blue bin.
