Do you shred paper at home?
Great news, shredded paper in a CLEAR plastic bag can be put in your recycle bin.
Bags need to be CLEAR so workers at the sorting plant can clearly see shredded paper in the bags.

CLEAR plastic bags used for shredded paper are the ONLY plastic bags that should go in the recycling bin. All other single-use plastic bags can be recycled at major store chains.
Lose shredded paper is a huge contaminate in recycling bins. Shredded paper mixed in with other cardboard and paper products lowers the quality of those materials.
Composting shredded paper is a great alternative to recycling it. The paper is already broken down enough to decompose quickly into compost. 🌱🌱🌱
