Recycling at Christmas

Or, what to do with wrapping paper waste.

Usually on Cristmas morning I grab one of the large barrels in the garage and by the end of gift giving it will be filled with crumpled up wads of wrapping paper. A recent article that I came across suggested using a shredder on used wraping paper. Shredded paper will take up less space and biodegrade faster. If you want to be even more friendly, use shedded paper in your compost.
