With Tax Day right around the corner, you’re probably sifting through a lot of financial paperwork — or will be soon. As you make room for the current tax year’s paperwork, you’re probably shredding a lot of papers from years past that are no longer relevant. And, of course, you’ll be putting any papers containing personal information through the shredder, which means you may end up with a glut of shredded paper. The easiest way to dispose of all that shredded paper is obvious — dump it in the recycle bin. Check with your recycler to make sure it will take shredded paper. A call to my recycler revealed that the company will take shredded paper as long as it’s not in a plastic bag. But, if you’re interested in doing your own recycling, there are alternatives to pitching shredded paper in the recycle bin. We’ve come up with 10 great uses for shredded paper — see the full list of ideas on our sister site, Living on the Cheap.
