Recycle Center Says Save Wrappings

wrapping paper

Go Easy there with that paper – we want to be able to use it again next year.  Reusing gift wrap is easy on your pocketbook, and also good for the environment. Jackson Community Recycling does not accept wrapping paper for recycling. Traditional wrapping paper can be difficult to recycle because it is often dyed and laminated, it can contain non-paper additives, such as gold and silver coloring, glitter and plastics, it can be very thin and contain few good quality fibers for recycling and it usually has tape on it from the gift wrapping. Wrapping paper and shopping bags alone account for about 4 million tons of trash annually in the U.S. Jackson Community Recycling suggests carefully opening gifts and saving the wrapping paper to reuse another year. Additionally they say, gift bags make it especially easy to reuse the wrapping.

  • Bigger trucks aren’t always better - August 19, 2014
    I recently had the rare opportunity to test a compact and a full-size pickup pretty much head-to-head. Going into it, I was pretty sure there was nothing the compact version could offer that I would like more than the full-size truck. But the Nissan Frontier, despite its size, is no less truck than the Nissan […]
