At Chistmas time, Australians generate 30% more household waste than usual, and each year we throw away around 365,000 kilometres of wrapping paper. That is equivalent to about 50,000 trees.

One way to help reduce the environmental impact of Christmas is to get creative with your wrapping. We’ve made a video showcasing some ideas.

Remember, over the Christmas period you can also bring overflow from your YELLOW recycling bin to any Council waste facility and dispose of it for free.
