GREENSBORO, NC  -- 'Tis the season for throwing stuff out! It's estimated Americans trash 25% more from Thanksgiving to Christmas. Even the recycle elves have a naughty and nice list of what you can and can't recycle.

Susan Heim, the Environmental Services Coordinator for Guilford County explains why some items are recyclable and others are not.  

If it's sparkley, it won't be accepted. That goes for bags, wrapping paper, Christmas cards, and tissue paper. Some places take plain wrapping paper, but many don't because of the dyes used in the paper. It's best look on your local facility's list.

Recycled Trees: Please remove all lights, decorations, stands and covers from trees before dropping them off to be recycled.

Wreaths, garland and artificial trees are not accepted.Too often, wreaths and garlands are bound together with wire that cannot be put through recycling machines.

Drop Off Sites: Find one where you live EarthLink911 has a data base that will track locations nearest you.
