Recycling your unwanted Christmas gifts

As we covered in one of our recent articles, each and every person in the UK is likely to have received a gift(s) which was either unwanted or will remain unused for many years to come. As a consequence, sites such as eBay have seen a massive increase in gifts listed for sale at knockdown prices with many people desperate to get their hands on cold hard cash.

This is one of the more simple ways in which you can recycle Christmas "waste" and convert this into money while at the same time "doing your bit for the environment". It is easy to forget how much work, energy and cost goes into manufacturing any item or any gift you may have received at Christmas. By simply selling on these gifts, rather than letting them gather dust in your home, you are reducing the need to replicate these goods in the short to medium term.

There is also the various wrapping which comes with presents, gifts and produce used over the Christmas period, the majority of which can be recycled and reused by simply taking it down to your local council waste disposal depot. There really is so much you can do with "waste" which will not only help the environment but in time it will save consumers and businesses significant amounts of money.
