Common holiday wastes such as: boxes from electronics, toys, shoes and shirts; empty wrapping paper tubes; gift/shopping bags made of paper; tissue paper; greeting cards & envelopes (even photo cards); newspapers, magazines & catalogs; steel cans; pie plates and clean aluminum foil; and even popcorn and cookie tins can all be recycled, just to name a few.
