Reduce, reuse, recycle and SHRED.
When you use our service, you are more than likely only thinking about shedding, but did you know how much of an impact you are making on the environment when you shred, and particularly when you use our services? See the facts and figures below.
We pride ourselves in the fact that we:
• Shredding one bale saves 9 trees
• Reduces 1.5 cubic yards of landfill
• Eliminates 2000 kilowatt hours of electricity
• And reduce the use of 3500 gallons of water each year
In addition to our paper shredding services, we also partner with Blue Star Recyclers to increase our document destruction recycling efforts, and allow our customers to safely and securely destroy electronics.

It’s more than just a piece of paper. Recycle!
Due to contrary belief, one piece of paper is not just a piece of paper. It’s not just a small article that will just go away, it’s not just light, thin and something you write on or make paper airplanes with. Its paper and its recyclable.
The average office worker throws away 10,0000 sheets of copy paper per year. When you skip the recycle bin, it’s a problem. Approximately 33% of the municipal solid waste stream (MSW) is made of the paper thrown away by those that fail to recycle. That 33% is the largest portion of the MSW.
Knowing that we recycle 100% of the paper that is shred, shredding should be just another step in your recycling routine. By shredding paper, you are not only recycling but you are also conserving resource and preventing greenhouse gas emissions, pollutants, saving energy and creating additional jobs. Additional recycling stimulates growth for greener technologies and reduces the need for landfills and trash incinerators.
We’ve all heard it a million times, but the words Reduce, Reuse and Recycle are more than just a phrase, they are currently a recycling movement. We have the recycling part down, so let us help you become part of the movement by going green and shredding.
