BOLIVAR, Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – A big stack of wrapping paper, gift and cardboard boxes and more in your garage.

It doesn’t have to go to the landfill.

The Stark Tuscarawas Wayne Solid Waste Management District reminds you that most of that gift wrapping paper can be recycled.

If it feels like paper, it’s probably good.

They also ask that you break down all cardboard boxes both curbside and at the recycling drop off locations.
