Shredding 101

Because we recycle all of the items we shred, it is important to us that the materials are not contaminated.  Placing items in our shred bins that may cause the entire shred batch to be rejected at the paper mill and recycling center means none of the materials will be accepted since the batch is contaminated.  We strive to help the environment in any way we can.  Please use this list as a reference so that your shredded materials are able to be repurposed.
