Some wrapping papers can’t be recycled, city says

The city of Laramie Solid Waste Division urges residents to consider that not all wrapping paper is recyclable.

If the paper is coated, shiny, has plastic or is covered in glitter, it should be treated as trash.

Many companies now make recyclable wrapping paper that is based on kraft paper. Other options would be to use plain kraft paper with homemade artwork, the comics section of the newspaper, reusable gift bags, maps and reusing wrapping paper.
