Can I Recycle Shredded Paper?
Shredding your confidential documents is a necessity, but there has been confusion over the years as to whether the shredded remnants is suitable for recycling. Many companies produce a large amount of private information that needs disposing of securely, and it can be hard to find the time to go to your local recycling centre after you’ve spent massive amounts of time stood by the shredder.
This is where Shredded Neat come in! Our dedicated team can help you get rid of your documents in a safe, secure way that is friendly to the environment.
What Can Be Done With Shredded Paper?
Whether you choose our off-site or mobile on-site service, Shredded Neat will recycle all the waste that we collect and destroy from your business or domestic property. You don’t have to worry about confidentiality as all the paper we dispose of has already been properly shredded.
What Happens To The Shredded Paper?
Recycled paper makes up around seventy percent of the fibre that is used to create new paper and cardboard in the UK, and our aim at Shredded Neat is to improve that score! In fact, we are so passionate about helping the environment that when you book your on/off-site shredding service with us, we will happily take your non-secure paper (such as scrap printouts, envelopes, brochures, books, cards etc) and recycle it for no extra charge.
Shredded Neat will also recycle unlimited amounts of your cardboard for you for a small charge, or if you drop it off at our Ditchling depot then there the service is completely free.
When it comes to your business, time should be dedicated to more important things. Rather than wasting time and money stood at the shredder, let Shredded Neat take care of it for you, and we will even recycle shredded paper and cardboard which improves your green rating.

Can you put shredded paper in the recycling bin?
The National Audit Office has warned that just because paper goes into a recycling bin, it is no guarantee that it won’t end up in a landfill. It can take paper months to decompose, and even longer if it’s glossy, cardboard or card. According to an article by the Independent, only half of recyclable materials was sent to be recycled and the rest ended up contributing to the rising pollution problem as part of landfill waste. Not only is this impacting the environment, but it means that your confidential information is not properly disposed of and can still be pieced together by criminals. The only way to be in full control of where your shredded paper ends up is through a company, such as Shredded Neat, who have direct ownership of our recycling process. We guarantee that your shredded documents are completely untraceable and will go to the recycling centre.
