Recycle Right

Shredded Paper

Companies such as: Staples, Office Max and UPS all provide shredding at their retail stores.  Please refer to the company’s program to learn more about pricing and locations.

  • If you have a shredder at home and want to recycle the paper, the paper should be in a CLEAR, plastic bag with shredded paper ONLY.  This is the only time a plastic bag should be placed in a recycling cart or in a SWACO drop-off container.
  • Shredded paper should not be placed loose in your recycling bin as it can contaminate the load of recyclables.
