Here's How to Recycle Holiday Cards, Wrapping Paper and Trees

Farmington area residents can put some cards and wrapping papers in with their recyclable paper.

After the holiday celebrations are over, the City of Farmington Hills reminds residents that cards, wrapping paper and trees can be recycled. 

According to a city press release, holiday cards and wrapping paper can go in your recycling cart loosely or in a brown paper bag with newspapers and junk mail. Any cards or wrapping paper with glitter or metallics are not recyclable and should go in with the regular trash.

Aluminum holiday cookie tins and lids can also go in your recycling cart.

Christmas trees can be dropped off for recycling at Glen Oaks Golf Course from Dec. 26 through Jan. 13, seven days a week from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the east end of the clubhouse parking lot at 30500 W. 13 Mile, just east of Orchard Lake Road. Trees must be free of all lights, decorations, and tinsel.

For more information, call 248-858-0906 or go to destinationoakland.com. Trees placed at the curbside will be collected with the regular trash.
