NBC News (NBC) - People are starting to dispose of holiday waste...

But many kinds of gift wrap and other decorative items can not be recycled.

After opening gifts... It might be tempting to throw holiday items away in the recycling bin...

But think twice before tossing.

Bubble wrap, twine, tinsel, styrofoam, ribbons and accented wrapping paper can not be recycled!

Sometimes they can even jam the sorting machines...

Plastic bags are especially problematic.

However, plain wrapping paper and cardboard are safe to recycle.
