  2. Be aware of where your Christmas trash goes! According to WBTV, “The large trash bag filled with wrapping paper, ribbons and bows is a Christmas morning staple, but it’s important to know where this trash is thrown. Victoria Johnson, recycling coordinator at the Horry County Solid Waste Authority, said it can be tempting to throw all that wrapping paper in the recycling bin, but it does a lot more harm than good. β€œWrapping paper is really tricky,” Johnson said. “A lot of people think it’s recyclable, but it’s actually not.” Many wrapping papers contain foil or glitter which cannot be recycled. Other Christmas staples that should stay out of recycling bins are ribbons, tinsel, and anything that looks like string. (WBTW)
  3. What to do with your Christmas tree now? According to wpde.com, “Christmas is over, but now you have to decide what to do with your Christmas tree. The Horry County Solid Waste Authority said it is encouraging people to take the extra step of making the holidays green and bright by recycling their trees after the season between Dec. 26 and Jan. 26. Anyone wishing to recycle must remove all lights, decorations, including garlands and tree stand. Bring the tree to a designated area to be shredded and recycled into free landscaping mulch that will be available to all citizens while supplies last. (wpde.com)
  4. Tragedy strikes! According to wbtw, “A woman died in a fire early Monday morning in Darlington County, according to Darlington County Coroner Todd Hardee. Crews responded to the fire around 4 a.m. Monday on Hidden Creek Road off West Old Camden Road, Hardee said. The woman’s body will be autopsied. His name has not yet been released.
    No additional information was immediately available.” (wbtw.com)
