We can put shredded paper in with the recycle items in a plastic bag just that they request a large X placed on the bag (we use the black garbage bags) so they know it is to recycle and not for the regular trash.
In my city, the recycling facility asks that shredded paper be put in clear plastic bags so they can see that what is in the bags is just shredded paper. Those working the line, can remove the plastic bags and put them in a separate pile for recycling.
Shredded paper can be put in with the regular paper, however just be sure not to put it in a plastic bag! A paper bag should be fine and a few staples will not hurt the recycling process.
