Secure Destruction Services for Materials other than Recyclable Paper:

Covanta 4 Recovery


Shredded Paper
Recycling sorting facilities are not able to capture shredded paper and recycle it as it is too small. It contaminates good recycling and will become trash if you put it in the blue bin.

You can recycle shredded paper at Bodow Recycling located at 1925 Park Street, Syracuse (off Hiawatha Boulevard, near Destiny USA); enter building off Exchange Place through the bottle return entrance.

Alternatively, you may put shredded paper in your trash and it will be converted into electricity at the Waste-to-Energy Facility in Jamesville, where our community's trash generates enough electricity to power 30,000+ homes each year.
