While the winter holiday season brings good cheer and great times with friends and family for many people, it also brings a lot more consumer purchases and waste. The quantity of recycling generated during this time period increases dramatically as people shop more. Discarded items include holiday wrap, cards and ribbon, not to mention the enormous quantity of cans, bottles and plastic containers tossed after holiday celebrations.
