The holidays are a great time for celebration. It's the time of year when family and friends come together, sometimes traveling from long distances. What's not to celebrate?

People around the country will be having a good time and not worrying about those everyday mundane things that normally occupy them throughout the year. Although its always nice to let loose a little, we should always remember that the environment cannot be put on hold. Recycling during the holidays is just as important, if not more important, in the ongoing battle of keeping our planet healthy for future generations.

So, without further adieu, I'd like to provide a few tips for Holiday Recycling:

- Recycle Your Gift Wrappers: We see it every year: the explosion of wrapping paper that flies across the house as excited kids voraciously dig into their presents. Just because so much is going on, many of us simply collect all of those gift wrappers in a bag and forget to separate it for recycling. That wrapping paper adds up - if every household does its part in recycling this it can make a big difference.

- Recycle Your Christmas Tree: Yes, your Christmas tree can be recycled and put to good use elsewhere. If you bring your tree to the right recycling center it will get a new job after displaying ornaments and providing a home for your presents. Your tree might be placed in a wildlife sanctuary to provide refuge for animals, or re-processed to create mulch.

- Recycle Your Holiday Cards: Just like gift wrapping, holiday cards can add up when put together (especially if you have twelve brothers and sisters, all with kids of their own, who are keen on sending cards for every occasion). It's as easy as separating the cards and making sure they end up in the recycling bin.

- Recycle Old Toys: Every holiday season, tons of old, broken, chipped and ripped toys get replaced with new models - the fancy, shiny, brand new items that will put a smile on any kid's face. This doesn't just happen with kids, or toys. Adults also get new gifts that replace their old items: a flat screen TV to replace that old boxy set or a brand new washer drier pair that puts the old clunky ones to shame. We don't often think about recycling these old, large items - but it's just as important as the smaller things. Although it can be a pain to haul our old toys out of the house and to the right recycling facility, it can make a big difference and is definitely worth it.
