The 2017 holiday season is rapidly coming to a close. You are left with wonderful memories, beautiful songs, delicious food, and... loads of trash. The great thing about trash is: most of it is easily recyclable. Here are a few dos and don'ts to remember as you clean up after the holiday season.

Holiday Recycling Dos

  • Recycle wrapping paper with mixed paper.
  • Recycle holiday cards with mixed paper.
  • Recycle gift boxes with cardboard.
  • Old electronics? Recycle them at Best Buy or at the Lebanon Recycling Center (fees may apply).
  • Got a Christmas tree?  Remove all lights, ornaments, garland, and treestands then drop it at the brush pile at the Lebanon Solid Waste Facility.

Holiday Recycling Don’ts

  • Foil backed wrapping paper is NOT recyclable.
  • Aluminum food plates, trays, and foil WITH food on them are not recyclable. Please remove all food before recycling these items.
  • Christmas trees with lights and ornaments on them are NOT recyclable. Please remove lights and decorations before recycling.
