Torn or shredded?

MY neighbour tore up a few letters and placed them in his recycling bin.

It was rejected by the binmen as it contained shredded paper. What is the minimum size of paper we may place in the bin? I carefully place small card price tags and receipts in the bin. Is this acceptable? It would appear that recycling is becoming too complicated. However, we are fortunate that we do not live in parts of Gloucestershire where they have eight different bins plus normal rubbish.

Bearing in mind that recycling is very expensive and so much is buried anyway, maybe we should rethink our rubbish disposal.
