Drop-Off Recycling Only. Don't recycle shredded paper in your curbside recycling cart. Shredded paper is too small to be sorted by the machines that sort our recycling.
Drop-Off Recycling: It's easy to take your sensitive documents to a drop-off shredding business or kiosk. The local businesses below shred paper at their stores, DIY shredding kiosks, or one-day Community Shred Events.
Compost Option: If there is no plastic in your shredded paper, you can compost it in your curbside compost cart, a backyard compost pile, or a worm composting bin.
If you can't compost it or take it to a paper shredding company, put shredded paper into a bag and place in your garbage.
