Note: DO NOT put shredded paper in your recycle bin. The sorting equipment tears it into tiny pieces where it becomes litter mixed in with the recyclable commodities -- lowering their market value. Please place shredded paper in your garbage can  so it can be converted to electricity at the Waste-to-Energy plant.

Lee County does not provide paper shredding/ document destruction service. 

But there are several private businesses that do.
