How do I dispose of shredded paper?
Unfortunately, shredded paper typically will need to go into your household trash to be picked up by your trash hauler. The fibers have been cut too short for the paper to be a viable recyclable material. If deposited into one of the bins at the Recycling Center, the shredded paper will be taken to the processor where it will fall through their conveyor belts and become waste and could potentially jam the recycling equipment.
