Recycling Christmas

Disposing of all the wrapping paper, boxes, plastic containers and other disposable items after Christmas should be a snap this year, with the newly opened Shelby County Recycling Facility.

Solid Waste Director Rick Solomon recently found out that the center would be able to accept and recycle wrapping paper, which is the bulk of the waste from Thursday’s Christmas celebration.

“Wow, I’m glad I found that out,” he said.
