Shredded Paper

Shredded paper is not permitted in your blue recycling cart, at the Middletown Recycling Center, nor at any of our Satellite Recycling Centers. Residential shredded paper must be placed in the garbage.    

Residents are encouraged to participate in paper shredding events. Shredded paper from the commercial shredding system gets recycled, as it is free of contamination and processed differently.

Paper shredding events are also scheduled by Monmouth County at different municipalities each year.  When the 2023 dates are available, they will be listed on this page.
