Wrapping paper not recyclable

Advertisement

The Eco Depot is reminding Fort St. John residents that wrapping paper is not recyclable.

That’s because wrapping paper is often dyed, laminated, or contains non-paper additives like plastic shapes and glitter.

The festive paper often has sticky tape attached to it, and is too thin to recycle.

So, when the Depot gets wrapping paper, it has no choice but to throw it in the garbage.

The Northern Environmental Action Team’s website advises residents to instead gift items in re-usable gift bags or cloth bags.
