Our customers often ask about the environmental impact of shredding. And one of the most common questions asked is, “is shredded paper recyclable?”. The answer is, yes. At Mobile Record Shredders we recycle 100% of the paper we shred. The waste produced by shredding services is recycled and helps prevent deforestation.
Paper, in even the recycled form is very valuable. The process of recycling paper includes down-cycling paper fibers into mixed grade paper. Copy paper, tissue paper, or toilet paper are just a few forms of paper that shredded paper turns into after recycled.
In addition to recycling the paper we shred, we also recycle electronics with our partner Blue Star Recycling. For more information on that partnership, click here.
