Want to recycle shredded paper?

In the September Briefing, an article incorrectly stated that you could not recycle shredded paper. It is true that you cannot recycle loose shredded paper. You can, however, recycle shredded paper if you put it in a paper bag, staple it shut and label it “shredded paper only.”

Bagging shredded paper is necessary because if it’s loose in your recycling bin it causes significant operational concerns at recycling facilities. For more information, contact Public Works at 952-563-4581 or
