Don't Forget to Recycle Your Wrapping Paper

Other

If you are left with lots of wrapping paper and you are not sure if it can be recycled, do the "scrunch test" to check.

Just take a piece of the wrapping paper and scrunch it into a ball in your hand.

Next, open your hand and take a look.

If the paper stays in a ball, it's likely you can recycle it. However, if it bounces back open, it can't be recycled

If it has any foil or glitter on it though, you can't recycle it. Even though it looks pretty, I think I need to resist buying it and only get recyclable paper in future.

My local council will not accept any wrapping paper for Recycling, we've been advised to put it into general waste.
