Shredded Paper

Shredded Paper


Shredded paper should not be placed in your curbside recycling because the shreds are too small to be sorted at the Materials Recovery Facility (recycling plant) that receives your recyclables.

Instead, please place shredded paper in paper bags and recycle at a Paper Retriever or River Valley paper drop off location. These are large green and yellow public recycling containers usually located in the parking lots of schools, places of worship and community centers.
