WHAT CAN AND CANNOT BE SHREDDED
from Mississippi Shredding Services:
Our primary mission is to shred confidential paper documents and to recycle as much of that paper as possible so it can return to the marketplace and avoid being dumped in a landfill. The more pure the paper, the more likely it will be re-used.
It is difficult to provide a comprehensive list of every acceptable or unacceptable item, but here is a basic guide:
|ACCEPTABLE AND OPTIMAL
White office paper (copier, computer, legal, letterhead, loose-leaf, cash receipts, memos, and other types of white paper) with any colored ink, non-glossy
Mixed Paper – Colored copier paper, windowed or windowless envelopes, yellow legal pads, manila and colored file folders, message pads; non-glossy flyers pamphlets and brochures
WHAT HAPPENS TO THE PAPER AFTER IT IS SHREDDED?
The paper is taken to a paper recycling center for processing within 24 hours of each event.
