Shredded paper

Recycling locator

Can you recycle?

Shredded paper can be recycled, but not all local councils will collect it for recycling, as some paper mills can’t process it. This is because:

  • Shredding paper weakens it
  • It could pose problems at paper mills e.g. maintenance and fire hazard issues

If your council doesn’t collect it for recycling, take it to a paper bank or throw in your rubbish bin.
