Always practice safe disposal.
It is very important to shred paper before you throw it out. If you are not sure what papers to shred, it is a good idea to follow the saying you are better safe than sorry. Shred any papers that might contain information that puts your identity, your finances, your privacy or your reputation at risk. Plus, you can do your part to help protect the environment and use recyclable paper bags to line your shredder bin. Or, recycle your shreddings right at home by reusing them.
