Johnson County recorded 14 inches of snow while Albion, in Edwards County, received 18 inches of snow.

GETTING RID OF UNWANTED CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS

Disposing of unwanted decorations after the holidays can be a hassle if you don't know what can and can't be recycled.  Gift boxes, tissue paper, bare Christmas trees, and non-metallic wrapping paper are few of the items that can be recycled.  However, trying to recycle things like sticky gift labels, bubble wrap, and ribbons and bows will land you on the "naughty" list.  It can be fun finding creative ways to reuse items that cannot be recycled.  For example, you can use old greeting cards to make festive gift tags or simply reusing packing materials to store your Christmas ornaments or decorations.
