Paper - Shredded

Shredded paper usually comes from confidential papers that have gone through a paper shredder, resulting in finely cut strips of paper.

Store and save in a labeled paper bag in preparation for composting or recycling (hauler acceptance dependant). Staple or fold at top to prevent shreds from flying out when cart is lifted.
