Remove From Christmas Trees
Christmas trees cannot be recycled if they are decorated with tinsel. Stray tinsel can be dangerous if ingested by animals.
Ways to Reduce
Make a Paper Chain Instead
Try decorating for the holidays with paper chains. Paper chains are inexpensive, and can be composted or recycled if they are stapled together. Don’t recycle them if they are glued together.
Ways to Reuse
Save Tinsel for Next Year
Pack up and reuse the tinsel to decorate your home next year. You can also use it to make bows, wreaths and other home-crafted holiday decorations.
