Christmas card and paper recycling

The countdown to Christmas has begun. Christmas cards are filling post boxes, cardboard-packaged gifts are landing on doorsteps and empty mince pie boxes are piling up high. Luckily, in Surrey you can recycle your festive paper and card with ease.

Whether you have empty chocolate boxes, old envelopes or used wrapping paper, there is room in your recycling bin for them all. Just remember that you can’t recycle anything with glitter on, wrapping paper that doesn’t rip or cards that contain batteries.
