Most varieties of wrapping paper are made from light card or printed paper. However shiny or metallic gift-wrap is made of plastic film.
Normal wrapping paper should be placed in the household recycling bin.
Please make sure items are clean, dry and placed loosely in the bin.
Unsure if your shiny gift-wrap is recyclable? If the paper tears you can recycle it. Paper that needs cutting with a scissors is metallic and cannot be recycled.
