 Paper – Shredded


Recycle it

Residents can recycle shredded paper in their blue cart or at community recycling depots. Put shredded paper in a clear plastic bag and tie the handles.

If you live in an apartment, townhouse or other multi-family complex, shredded
paper should be accepted in your building's recycling program.

​​Starting November 1, 2016, we require businesses and organizations to recycle all the materials we do at home, plus scrap metal, clear plastic film (polyethylene) and wood. For more details, please view the recycling requirements for businesses and organizations.

Dispose of it safely

You can take private documents to The City's landfills as well. Any documents requiring immediate burial will be subject to the Hard to Handle surcharge and are at the discretion of the landfill staff. Inform the scale house upon arrival and you will be directed to the appropriate location.
