Shredded paper is no longer accepted in Maple Grove's curbside recycling or at the drop-off site. Most recycling haulers do not accept shredded paper due to the maintenance problems it causes to their equipment. Also, there is no end market for shredded paper in the recycling stream.
Options for disposal of shredded paper are:
- Throw it in the trash
- Donate it to your local pet store (call ahead to make sure they accept it)
The City of Maple Grove does not have a shredding service.
