Garbage Guru Tidbits – Keep the Season Green

Reduce your waste-line this holiday season:

  • Decorate using natural materials like pine cones, gourds, berries and popcorn.
  • Wrap creatively with comic paper, old maps, posters, sheet music, fabric, or wall paper scraps.
  • Give gift cards for restaurants, salons, entertainment, or make a donation to the person’s favorite charity or organization.
  • Think ahead to next year – save and reuse bows, gift bags and boxes. The cover of greeting cards can be repurposed as attractive gift tags.
  • Recycle torn wrapping paper (without glitter), packaging and boxes in your curbside bin.
