Candy wrapper in park on Yom Tov

Question:

If I go to the park on yomtov with a candy wrapper what should i do with the wrapper. It would be assur to carry it as it is not a tzorech yomtov anymore. On the other hand i do not want to leave garbage and make a chillul Hashem. Would that justify the carrying? thank you

 

Answer:

 Hello,

You are asking a tough question, because this essentially is a catch 22. The only thing I can say (which I heard from a prominent posek regarding this situation) would be to keep some of the candy in the wrapper until you get to a garbage can. If even if you take the whole cany out, have in mind that you will put a little bit of the candy back into the wrapper. This way the wrapper still has it’ original use, and will not become muktza.

Best wishes
