Where do we put shredded paper? 2016-11-17T09:51:58+00:00

If you have a blue recycling bin at your residence and live within the City of Sheridan, you may place the shredded paper in a paper bag and staple the top shut and place it into your blue curbside recycling bin.  County residents may place the shredded paper into a bag (prepared the same way) and place it into the “Office Paper” bin at one of the drop-sites listed here.  Or you may bring shredded paper to the Recycling Center at 1114 KROE Lane (please call 672-5403 for directions).  Please do not place loose shredded paper in any bins.  Thank you!!
