Shredded paper is accepted in your kerbside recycling as long as it is contained in a clear bag. When we collect your recycling, if the shredded paper is loose, this might allow the shredded paper to blow down the street which would be very difficult to clean up. Please only shred personal or sensitive information and don't forget to tie the bag. Paper that is not shredded is easier to collect, transport, sort and recycle.
