Is This Recycling or Composting?

I just hate to throw away things that could be re-used!  Awhile back I realized that my husband's office was throwing away about a trash bag full of shredded papers per week.  This seemed like a waste to me, so he started bringing them home.

3 Bags of Paper Shreds Were Heading to the Dumpster 

At first I was just adding them to our compost bin when it looked too wet, and they were working great, but he was bringing them home faster than I could use them.  One day we needed bedding in our large dog crate.  We used the paper shreds and the wheels in my head started turning! 

Recently, I needed to add more bedding to the deep litter in our goat barn.  Usually I use wheat straw, old hay or pine shavings, but instead I had a great idea!
