Holiday lights can be recycled! Drop off unwanted light strings at Andover City Hall Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. throughout the year. There are designated containers in the lobby. Every part of the strand is dismantled by vocational center clients and properly recycled locally.
Unfortunately, most wrapping paper cannot be recycled at this time. Wrapping paper contains glitter and other additives that makes it unable to be recycled. There are greener ways to wrap gifts, such as use the comics from the newspaper, color brown paper bags or newsprint. There IS recyclable wrapping paper at some stores, make sure it is labeled as such before putting it in the recycling.
