I would like to know the pros and cons of using shredded paper from
laser printer and photocopier output as garden mulch. My office has
been producing a lot of this shredded paper recently and I hate to see it
just sent to the local energy-from-waste facility -- I'd like to sequester
some of that carbon in my garden organic matter.
Are the inks toxic? How well will the paper break down? Any other
concerns I should know about?
