Shredded paper can be reduced by only shredding what must be shredded – such as account numbers – and then the rest of the paper can be recycled normally.

If you choose to recycle your shredded paper, it must be bagged and tied inside of a CLEAR plastic bag in order to be recycled through curbside recycling.

Another option for disposal of shredded paper would be composting.
