What do with Christmas waste


Imagine it’s mid-afternoon, 25th December. You’re slumped on the sofa surrounded by kith, kin (Covid permitting) and a mountain of rubbish. Even if you could see past your pudding-filled belly, you still wouldn’t be able to see your feet because everything below knee level is submerged in a sea of wrapping paper, toy packaging and Christmas card that were knocked off the mantelpiece when someone, not naming names, thought it would be a good idea to try out their new remote control helicopter in the house.

So what can you do with all that rubbish? You can recycle and reuse it, that’s what!

Here some helpful hints from Recycle This on reusing and recycling all that stuff – including some crafty ideas particularly aimed at kids.
