Christmas recycling shambles: Families are wasting time sorting festive waste because glitter-covered cards and wrapping paper can\'t be re-used

Millions of tons of wrapping paper and Christmas cards will be buried because they cannot be recycled. In a festive farce, cards and packages made of glitter or metal finishes were rejected by paper mills. That means thousands of wells. This means that families who have already sorted out the Christmas waste can see it burned or dumped in a landfill. Parliament yesterday admitted that recycling on trucks had been thrown away as flash would clog the machine and pollute recycled paper. Some local authorities refused to accept any wrapping paper, while others refused to accept adhesive tape. Chaos is the latest consequence of implementing complex waste collection regulations for families. The rules are blamed for the first drop in recycling last year since 2000. Yesterday, the government issued a warning not to recycle cards and wrapping paper containing flash -- The \"immediate recycling\" campaign of the sponsored charity is over. But for many homeowners who buy these products, it will be news that the products are widely sold on the streets and there is no information that they may have to go to the landfill. John Lewis, who provides lamination and foil, admits that it has to do more to educate shoppers. It said: \"We do sell a lot of completely recyclable options and we are working to send a clearer message to make sure our customers know exactly what can be recycled and what can\'t be recycled next Christmas According to council officials, the Flash has brought a problem because it is \"too small to control \". If it eventually appears in a greeting card processed by the waste plant, it can enter recycled paper made of them and then be rejected by the company that purchased it. This problem arises because the decoration of wrapping paper has become more and more exquisite in recent years. John O\'Connell of the Taxpayer Union said last night: \"It\'s ridiculous. Families who enjoy the festive period of course want to do the right thing and recycle, and it is the responsibility of Parliament to give them the right advice. \"People have taken a lot of effort to separate the festival garbage, and now they will feel, what is the point-my garbage will eventually be landfill anyway. Local authorities have issued various suggestions to householders on what is recyclable Christmas waste. The South tyenside Council warned: \"The flash that is placed in the recycle bin will be scattered all over the ground, and if the crew collects the materials, the recyclables of the entire truck will be rejected. Last year, the authorities rejected the \"large numbers\" of these trucks \"-- The load that is eventually burned or sent to the landfill. Hampshire and Exeter councils will not take the wrapping paper from people\'s homes, and a spokesman for the latter accused it of poor quality. Many families will think that it is safe to shop online and pack cardboard for buying gifts online. However, this may take a hard effort to remove the tape before it is recycled. The Cambridge City Council recommends that it is not necessary to remove the tape because it is screened out when the material is pulped. But Cardiff council says packaging with high levels of tape can\'t be recycled, although it tries to handle as many non- Use foil as much as possible. Now Linda Clayton, head of recycling, said: \"We might say that if you have a large carton or carton with thick brown tape on it, it\'s better to take it off. If not, cardboard packaging could be discarded at the paper mill and then thrown away, she added. The confusing rule on the wrapping paper means that the householder is advised to do a \"scrunch\" test to see if it can be recycled. If the paper is still crumpled in their hands, it may be recyclable, and if it pops back to the flat, it may be a metal plastic film, which is not. Recycling now also encourages families to rinse beverage bottles and remove food from the broken meat pie foil container to prevent items such as paper from being contaminated. The Local Government Association said: \"Parliament usually encourages people to recycle as much as possible. It is important, however, that everyone understand that they should follow industry standards to ensure that no recycling is contaminated.
