OKLAHOMA CITY -

Oklahomans' holiday trash will soon become a treasure.

American Waste Control and other businesses teamed up for the "unboxing Christmas campaign" to encourage Oklahomans to recycle Christmas packaging.

They collected about 4-million pounds of recyclable products. And they say all the proceeds will go to the Sandy Hook School fund and the Salvation Army.

"You know, you want to take care of your own, but at the same time, with a disaster of that nature, you want to reach out to those who are suffering," said American Waste Control CEO, Tom Hill.

American Waste expects to raise several thousand dollars. It collected four times as much as they did last year.
