State environmental officials encourage Delawareans to step up recycling during the holidays

The holiday season provides Delawareans with ample opportunities to recycle, according to the state Department of Natural Resources.

 

While used natural Christmas trees can no longer be dropped off at state parks like in past years, they can still be brought to a yard-waste recycling facility or drop-off site from now until January 27th, 2012.   Trees must be free of any decorations, lights or tinsel.  Most wrapping paper, gift tags, Christmas cards, boxes and, of course, holiday catalogues can be put into the regular recycling stream.  CLICK HERE for more about recycling in Delaware.
