How to recycle

Shredded Paper

In food and yard waste

Put shredded paper in the Food & Yard waste cart. Keep it contained in a paper bag or mix it in with the food and yard waste, so it doesn’t fly out and create litter.

Did you know?

Plastic contaminates the compost. Please keep shredded envelope windows and other plastics out of the Food & Yard waste cart.

Decrease waste: Choose reusable items or donate to thrift stores.
