Even though we collected the wrapping paper to use to light the fire we still had 2 black bags full of packaging that couldn't be recycled, with the extra packaging involved in the christmas groceries we didd't have enough room in the bins for the extra.

I am tempted to unwrap things in store and leave them with the disposal problems in future.
