Earth Day Reminder: Shredding is Eco-Friendly (and Secure!)

How Paper Shredding Saves the Environment

Shredding documents with a professional document destruction company guarantees that any confidential or other high-risk information they contain is securely destroyed. This helps you meet privacy regulations and protects your business, your employees, and your clients, customers or patients.

But did you also know it’s Earth-friendly?

All that paper doesn’t just end up in a landfill! It’s recycled and made into other paper products. After the documents go through our industrial shredder, all that shredded paper is compacted into bales (each weighing about 1300 pounds!). Even though the shredding has made all of the information they contain completely illegible, those bales remain in our completely secure facility until they are delivered to our paper recycling facility.

We use the Fox River Fiber paper recycling facility which has been certified for security by the National Association for Information Destruction. The shredded paper is turned into pulp and then repurposed into anything from printing paper to packaging. Fox River Fiber uses “state-of-the-art equipment, energy saving strategies, new technology, and has certifications with various green-focused organizations.”
