- Shredded paper can be placed in a CLEAR plastic bag for recycling. Make sure only to place shredded paper in the bag. This is the only time plastic bags should be used for recycling.
- Shredded paper should not be placed loose in your recycling bin as it can contaminate the load of recyclables.
- Shredded paper should not be placed in an opaque bag as Rumpke cannot clearly see the contents.
