    Shred personal documents and put the shredded stuff in a bag. Donate to those organizations that collect paper by the pound. All the schools and churches in our area collect so bins are easy to locate. Shredded paper is accepted when bagged.

    I have the same question Heather asked.

    As far as documents that contain personal information, I remove all personal information from those documents, (pre-approved credit card offers and any other mailings or outdated documents), and recycle the rest of the paper. I consider the time it takes to do this and then recycle the rest of the document to far outweigh any of it going into a landfill.
