Recycling tips this Holiday Season:
- Put your gifts in reusable shopping bags. It's two gifts in one.
- The plastic bag ban for all stores goes into effect on July 1, 2022
- Did you know that tissue paper is made from recycled paper? The fibers are shortened to the point that they are no longer recyclable. Therefore, Delaware Recycles recommends you reuse it or place it in the trash when you are done with it.
- Wrapping paper is recyclable. However, keep and reuse the bows and ribbon as they are not recyclable.
- Holiday cookie tin guidelines:
- eat the cookies
- reuse the tin(s) for next year or recycle them. The included wax paper is not recyclable.
