Wrapping paper: Can Christmas wrapping paper be recycled?

If you’ve bought recycled wrapping paper this year, there is also a good chance it can be recycled again.

However, some authorities won’t accept wrapping paper, because it is often dyed, laminated, or contains non-paper additives like glitter or foil.

Some wrapping paper is also very thin and contains few of the good quality fibres needed to be recycled.

Sticky tape can also make wrapping paper very difficult to recycle, so it’s important to remove it before it goes in the recycling bin.
