MUA Issues Guidelines for Proper Preparation of Shredded Paper
The Morris County Municipal Utilities Authority has issued new guidelines for the proper preparation of shredded paper in those municipalities that participate in the MCMUA’s “all-in-one” single-stream curbside recycling collection program. These guidelines are designed to make the recycling process more efficient.
Recycle Shredded Paper Responsibly:
- Shred as little paper as possible - only those pieces of paper with information on them that you don’t want others to see. The less shredded paper in the recycling stream, the better for the recycling process. Because shredded paper is so small, it doesn’t get sorted with other paper and winds up in the trash at the end of the system.
