As regular readers will know, we take confidential waste seriously here at WEA Area 6. Shredding is part of our culture. Usually we put the shredded waste into the commercial paper recycling hopper, however today we have gone one step further. In line with the “reduce, reuse, recycle” mantra that we work towards we have just trialled sending a huge sack of shredding to be used as chicken beds. If this works out we will have a useful and local home for all of our confidential shredded waste.
The cycle will become –
- WEA paperwork
- Archive that which needs preserving
- Shred that which needs to be disposed of confidentially
- Send confidential shredded paper to be recycled as chicken bedding
Permaculture in motion – its not easy being green but it certainly raises a smile.
