Can you recycle shredded paper?



  1. 0 Votes

    Some community recycling centers do accept shredded paper while others do not. The best option would be calling your local recycling center to see if they accept shredded paper and if they have any packaging requirements. Some community recycling centers do not accept shredded paper because it is considered less valuable than whole paper and it can be more difficult to recycle.

    Whether you can recycle shredded paper depends on where you live and how your waste paper is recycled. Some community recycling programs will pick up shredded paper if it is placed securely in a paper bag. Other towns and garbage/recycling companies refuse to pick up paper shreds.
    Despite common public thought, shredded paper isn’t as easy to recycle or as valuable as whole paper.

    Wherever you live, you should be able to find a facility that does accept shredded paper.
