Shredded paper can not be collected at the curb or at drop-off sites for recycling because is too small for the single stream processing facility equipment to sort. The pieces get wet and stick to the glass bottles and/or jars or gum up the sorting equipment and can cause it to malfunction. But, have no fear, shredded paper can be directly dropped off at the ACC CHaRM 1005 College Avenue and the ACC Recycling Facility at 699 Hancock Industrial Way. Place the shredded paper in paper bags, boxes or a clear plastic bags and put them in the dumpster that is clearly marked with with a sign that says SHREDDED PAPER ONLY.
Additionally, there will be two shred events per year for our residents (spring and fall). These events will be sponsored by the ACC Recycling Division and the location will rotate around the community. Historically, the spring shred event has been housed at the CHaRM, and the fall event has been in the back parking lot of the Georgia Square Mall. Please stay tuned for more detailed information about these events.
Lastly, there are several private companies that shred documents and recycle the shreds. Visit the yellow pages for a complete list of local shredding businesses.
