EL PASO — Shredded gift wrap, boxes and gift bags can be recycled after the holidays.
New and used paper gift bags and wrapping paper are accepted in the curbside recycling program as long as they are not metallic.
Holiday cards, envelopes and gift boxes may also be disposed of in the blue bins.
Gift boxes should be flattened. Bows and ribbons normally used to decorate gifts are not recyclable so they can go in a trash bin.
