WHY SHRED?

ONSITE DOCUMENT DESTRUCTION…

It’s the safest, most effective way of eliminating the threat of identity theft. Secure and locked containers are placed at your premises for safely disposing of unwanted documents. These containers are then serviced by our trained professional on a regularly scheduled basis. This reduces the chain of custody from your employee, to its final destruction.

SECURITY

Identity theft is one of the fastest growing crimes in America affecting hundreds of thousands of people yearly. As an individual or a corporation, having your information stolen can be devastating. Secure document shredding is a way to eliminate this risk.

ECONOMY

Office document shredders are costly, troublesome and for the most part, ineffective in properly destroying documents. By saving at least one man hour per week, our service will quickly pay for itself when compared to the cost of operating & maintaining a paper shredder along with the loss of production of employees, it doesn’t take long to show the advantage of outsourcing. You will also be protecting your business from penalties and fines if documents are not properly disposed of.

ECOLOGY

We live in a beautiful country with vast forests and wildlife. It is our responsibility to protect and preserve this for future generations. Every time paper is dumped in a landfill, more trees must be destroyed to replace it. Therefore we are committed to recycling every piece of paper we collect. We will also use recycled paper products whenever possible in our everyday business. Ecology will always be a top priority while conducting our business.

PAPER SHREDDING STATISTICS

Commercial (Businesses/Offices)

  • 77% of what is wasted in offices across the country is recyclable.
  • Most of the paper wasted is high grade paper.
  • Using old paper to make new paper uses 30 to 50% less energy than making paper from trees.
  • Pollution is also reduced by 95% when used paper is made into new sheets.
  • 40% of all waste going to landfills is paper.
  • Office paper is recycled into paper towels, tissue paper and toilet paper.


Residential (Individuals)

  • The average American uses seven trees a year in paper, wood, and other products made from trees. This amounts to about 2,000,000,000 trees per year!
  • The amount of wood and paper we throw away each year is enough to heat 50,000,000 homes for 20 years.
  • Approximately 1 billion trees worth of paper are thrown away every year in the US.
  • Americans use 85,000,000 tons of paper a year; about 680 pounds per person.
  • Each ton (2000 pounds) of recycled paper can save 17 trees, 380 gallons of oil, three cubic yards of landfill space, 4000 kilowatts of energy, and 7000 gallons of water.
  • The 17 trees saved (above) can absorb a total of 250 pounds of carbon dioxide from the air each year. Burning that same ton of paper would create 1500 pounds of carbon dioxide
