Holiday Waste Recycling Guide

The holiday season creates many unique waste streams that cause confusion. These four common holiday items should be managed as follows:

Greeting Cards:
– Place in the Blue Box with your paper items
– Consider saving the fronts to use as gift tags next year

Paper Napkins:
– Place in the garbage, even if clean
– Consider using cloth napkins for a low waste option

Ornaments:
– Place in the garbage if getting rid of ornaments
– Save for future years, or donate to a thrift store

Tangerine Crates:
– Place in the garbage or use as kindling for your woodstove
– Reuse for storage in the garage, basement or shed

Do you have questions about a specific item not mentioned here? Ask the Waste Wizard at www.mindenhills.ca/landfill. You can also use the wizard to set up reminders about waste site closures, events and more.
