TULSA - Christmas is over and now you may be wondering what to do with all of the cardboard, wrapping paper and other debris left from the holiday of giving.
According to a trio of waste management and recycling-related firms in Tulsa, the spirit of giving can continue even as you clean up the trash left over after the holidays. American Waste Control and Mr. Murph is partnering with the MET Recycling of Tulsa in recycling Christmas waste during its Unboxing Christmas 12 Days Campaign.
During the campaign, American Waste is donating proceeds from the recyclables collected to the Tulsa Salvation Army and the Sandy Hook Elementary School Fund to help families affected in the recent shooting tragedy.
Those interested in participating can drop off electrical wires, styrofoam, cardboard, Christmas trees and regular paper, cardboard, plastics, aluminum, and glass at the Mr. Murph center at 1150 North Peoria.
Materials can be dropped off at any Mr. Murph's 60 regular twenty-four hour drop off locations all around Green Country – at no cost.

Last year, American Waste processed more than a million pounds of paper, plastic, cardboard, and aluminum with its “12 Days After Christmas” Campaign, a number it hopes to surpass this year.
