Residents urged to discontinue placing shredded paper in recycling carts

Post Date:August 09, 2018 10:00 AM

St. Louis Park residents are requested to discontinue placing shredded paper in recycling carts due to problems caused at the sorting facilities. Even when placed in paper bags, shredded paper acts as confetti and contaminates glass.

Limit shredding to confidential items, and if possible, save these papers to shred at city or business-sponsored shred events. Many office supply or shipping businesses also offer shredding services. As a last resort, shredded paper should be placed in the trash.

Upcoming free shred events:

Aug. 18, 9 a.m. – noon
Sunrise Banks
525 Washington Ave. N.
Minneapolis, MN 55401

Sept. 7, 9:30 – 11:30 a.m.
Pioneer SecureShred
155 Irving Ave. N.
Minneapolis, MN 55405
