Want to be quickly up to speed about recyling in Berkeley?Discover our recycling guidelines
Put in the green cart unless the item has glitter or other pieces of plastic in it.
Use for as long as possible before disposal. Unwrap items carefully, and rewrap new items using less adhesive material (in order not to tear large portions of the tissue, when it is opened next).
Tissue paper (for wrapping purposes) is usually made out of recycled paper, therefore the fibers are already shortened to the point where it cannot be recycled again, but can be reused, if properly cared for.
