Is shredded paper easier to recycle?

I was at Partners the other day and noticed one of those compact, home-use paper shredders and was wondering if shredded paper is easier to recycle than sheet paper? Stripe-cut, cross-cut or whatever cut they've got to offer.

I do understand that the main reason behind shredding your papers is security but does doing so has any benefits other than piece of mind?

Although it technically CAN be recycled, many recycling companies will frown upon it as, in a shredded state, they can't be 100% sure that it contains nothing but the type of paper they want to recycle. If you want to recycle, it's therefore best NOT to shred it.

However, if you're shredding for security reasons, the shredded paper CAN be added to a compost heap provided it contains no staples, sellotape etc. It probablay also adds to the security given that only the most determined fraudster is goign to start sifting through your compost heap for your vital details!
