SHREDDED PAPER

Some local authorities will accept shredded paper together with your other paper items via your local authority’s kerbside collections or at your nearest paper bank. If so:

Other local authorities ask for shredded paper to be recycled in the cardboard recycling banks only. Check your local authority’s website, or give them a ring to make sure.

If your local authority does not accept shredded paper, then either don't shred it (if appropriate) or give it to a private company to dispose of.

Understanding shredded paper issues

Some local authorities will not collect shredded paper. This is because although, technically, shredded paper can be recycled, some paper mills cannot take it. There are two main reasons for this;

What else can I do with it?

Avoid it!

Avoid shredding your papers - unless you are worried about confidential information getting into the wrong hands. This will make the paper more easily recyclable.

Did you know that every household in Hart District throws away over 1 tonne of rubbish every year? That's more than 30,000 tonnes in all and most of it goes in landfill.

Rubbish in landfill sites causes environmental damage such as:

Hart's recycling rate of 19% is amongst the best in the country, that's more than double the national average. However the Government has set tough new targets to almost double recycle rates over the next few years. Ways of achieving this are being looked at by Hart but it is a tough target when the amount of rubbish is increasing by 3% every year in Hampshire.

All the money raised from foil cycling in Hart goes to the Phyllis Tuckwell hospice charity.
All book recycling proceeds go to Oxfam.
Clothing and shoes recycling is organised by the Salvation Army.
If all the cans recycled in Hart last year were laid end to end it would reach from Fleet to Sheffield.
Recycling one glass bottle saves enough energy to power a colour TV for twenty minutes.
