- Go to a Recycling Center. If you’re looking to get rid of a bulk pile of cards, go green. Take your collection to the local recycling center to make sure the material doesn’t go to waste. However, it’s important to note that certain materials (such as glitter, foil, felt, and ribbon) are not excepted by recycling centers.
