Gift Wrap

Western Labrador

Click on the tabs below for reuse, recycling or safe disposal options.

Gift wrap (including tissue paper) is often made from a composite of different materials including plastic and foil. Therefore, it is not recyclable and is not accepted in paper recycling programs. Save your gift wrap for reuse at a later time or dispose of it with your garbage.

Think About It

Visit MMSB’s Our Greener Future Blog for ideas on how to reduce and reuse gift wrap.

If everyone in Canada wrapped just three gifts in reused paper or gift bags, it would save enough paper to cover 45,000 hockey rinks. That’s enough paper to cover the area of Mt. Pearl four times!
