The Rise of Recycling Fees: Are You Being Nickel-and-Dimed?

Recycling Fees

When paper prices decline, shredding companies lose money because they aren’t paid as much for the
shredded paper they sell to recycling companies. This means that, often, national shredding companies
pass that cost onto you when you bring your documents in for shredding. These businesses are trying to
recover losses by charging higher recycling fees for their shredding services – as high as 20 percent for
each customer! They expertly bury the costs by giving the price increases a different name - for
instance- by increasing another 10 percent on to the 4 percent “environmental fee” they already charge.
