    You shred paper, so why isn’t shredded paper recyclable ?

      Call your recycling hauler and they will tell you if it is or isn't. Our hauler, while not to keen on the idea, will accept shredded paper in a paper bag that is stapled to prevent the shreds from falling out. Their reasoning is that shredded paper is to small to contain on its own. It just ends up flying all over the MRF.

      That is what our hauler says also. We can put it with the recycles but here it has to be secured in a clear paper bag, which makes no sense a paper bag would be better so it can be recycled together.
