  • Use reusable shopping bags.  This will reduce the number of plastic bags that get trashed and minimize the amount of petroleum used to make them.  If you receive plastic bags, remember to recycle the clean ones at your local grocery store.
  • Send your holiday greeting in electronic form.  E-cards can be enhanced with sound and animation and they create no physical waste.
  • If you use traditional gift wrapping, avoid wrapping gifts in materials that are not recyclable or reusable, such as foil or metallic papers.  Always buy recycled-content wrapping paper.  If you store doesn't sell recycled-content wrapping paper, ask the manager to order it in the future.
  • If you send holiday cards, buy recycled-content cards and envelopes, or make your own cards or gift tags out of last year's cards and the wrapping paper you saved.
  • Remove your name from the mailing list of any catalog you no longer wish to receive. Eliminate unwanted credit offers by calling 1-888-5OptOut (1-888-567-8688) or visiting www.optoutprescreen.com

Before recycling your tree, please remove all tinsel and decorations.  Flocked trees cannot be recycled, and are only accepted as trash.  Residents may dispose of flocked trees in their curbside trash container by cutting the tree into sections, no longer than 3 feet in length, and placing the sections into the trash cart.  Trees may also be taken to a landfill or transfer station for disposal.

Many people enjoy a deep fried turkey for the holidays, but used cooking oil cannot be disposed of in the trash and should never be poured down the drain. The City of Redding Transfer Station accepts cooking oil and grease during the months of November through mid-January. There is no charge for this service. Once the oil has cooled, put it back in the containers it came in, and bring it to the Transfer Station for recycling from November 17, 2015 through January 16, 2016. Residents may bring their cooking oil in from 9am to 4pm, Tuesday through Saturday. Call the City of Redding at 224-6201 with any questions.
