During the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, there are often questions about what items are recyclable. To help address some of the common questions, the Maricopa Association of Governments (MAG), in cooperation with its Solid Waste Advisory Committee and the Valleywide Recycling Partnership, produced a series of short, fast-paced videos in 2013 to encourage residents to "Think Before You Shop" and also give tips for how to "reduce, reuse, and recycle" during the holiday season.
Disposable Dinnerware – Instead of paper plates, use real dinnerware to save on holiday trash.
Gift Wrap – Since wrapping paper is not always recyclable, choose a fun alternative.
Greeting Cards – Cut cards in half and reuse as a postcard or gift tag.
Foam Packing – Don't use foam packing peanuts. Instead use crumpled newspaper.
Cardboard – Recycle cardboard, which, along with paper, makes up 40 percent of landfill trash.
Plastic Bags – When shopping this holiday season, bring your own reusable bags.
