The City is reminding residents, that even with the best of intentions that most wrapping paper is not recyclable.

Their website indicates the average Canadian family sends 25-45% more waste to the landfill with much of this waste being gift wrap and wrapping supplies.

Noting glittery, coloured, and metallic wrapping paper is not recyclable. It is heavily saturated with dye and contains little fibre for recycling.

Residents are encouraged to wrap gifts using recyclable materials such as newspaper, old maps or brown kraft paper, or to use fabric bags, reusable gift bags, tea towels or scarves that can be used year after year.
