With holiday shipping underway,   the Connecticut Resources Recovery Authority is reminding recipients to recycle catalogs and shipping materials.

Paul Nonnemacher with CRRA says that will help make it a “green” Christmas.

He says wrapping paper and greeting cardscan be recycled after the holidays unless they have plastic or foil components —  and any “chips” for musical cards should be removed before they’re put in the recycling bin.

Nonnemacher  says bubble wrapping can be saved and re-used,  and if those foam “peanuts” are too much trouble to save and reuse, there are eight places in Connecticut where they can be dropped off.

Decorators  who replace their old holiday lights with newer,  energy-efficient L-E-D lights this year are urged to dispose of the old lights properly, at an electronics recycling event.
