Can I recycle gift and greeting cards?

Holiday and special occasion greeting cards are accepted in most local recycling programs, as long as they are 100% paper. Detach and discard any part that contains non-paper attachments, including glitter and sound makers. Dispose of metallic, foil and mylar gift and greeting cards in the garbage.
