Is Wrapping Paper Recyclable?

Everyone loves opening presents. But what should you do with all of that wrapping paper after you or your kids tear it to shreds? Recycle it of course!

Customers ask us all the time if wrapping paper is recyclable, and the answer is almost always yes! Regular and glossy wrapping paper is recyclable unless it has non-paper additives like metallic flakes, colored shapes, glitter and plastics. Foil, metallic and heavily laminated wrapping paper should also be thrown away instead of recycled.

Please do not recycle foil, plastic coating, ribbon, bows and glitter.

So go ahead and give the gift of green and recycle your wrapping paper on birthdays, anniversaries and Christmas! Have questions? Contact Kimble for all of your holiday recycling needs.
