Shredded paper cannot go in your recycling bin, but you can recycle it at a paper shred event or kiosk! Businesses in Kitsap and Mason county occasionally sponsor free paper shredding events. Check the LeMay Community Shred Event schedule to see if an event is scheduled near you. If there isn't an upcoming free event, learn about year-round paper shredding options.
