Do you love the holiday season; yet detest the waste generated during these few weeks each year? SCRAP Humboldt will be collecting specific items from your holiday waste stream to be reused in future educational workshops. SCRAP Humboldt will hold a collection day at their Jacoby’s Storehouse location on January 5 from 10-4pm, to gather specific materials such as; calendars, gift bags, gift boxes, ribbon and bows, cardboard wrapping paper rolls, metallic wrapping paper, large folded flat sheets of wrapping paper, working Christmas lights, cookie and popcorn tins, garland, tinsel, and tissue paper. Christmas trees are not accepted at this site — please bring these to a facility accepting green waste or yard debris.
SCRAP Humboldt reminds you to think about reuse even before dealing with the unwanted wrapping materials from presents. With extended holiday hours, (Thursday-Sunday December 1-16th) SCRAP Humboldt’s Jacoby’s Storehouse shop has everything you need to wrap, decorate, and create your own personalized gifts. We also have our RE:Boutique which features one-of-a-kind handmade 100% local, artist’s wares made from at least 75% reused materials. Wrap your gifts in reusable bags made from old bed-sheets, or gift boxes made from past calendars. Make this season easy on your pocket book and on the planet.
