Recycling Shredded Paper

Secure On-Site Shredding has been going green with our customers since 1994. We are there to help you get rid of documents to prevent identity theft all while being sure they are recycled.

Four Reasons Why Recycling Should be a Concern for You:

  1. Limit Pollution: When paper sits in a landfill and is broken down, it turns into methane, which is a potent gas. You are preventing this from being released into the air causing pollution. Plus by recycling paper you are saving up to 2,400 pounds of carbon dioxide from being released in the air. Large amounts of carbon dioxide is said to be a leading cause of global warming.
  2. Save Energy: Recycling paper saves on energy because it cuts down on energy used to create more paper. Producing recycled paper only requires about 60% of the amount of energy it takes to produce new paper.
  3. Save Trees: Trees are vital for our environment. Trees release oxygen, a vital resource with which we use to breath. By saving trees from being cut down for the production of paper, we are essentially saving our own lives. About one ton of recycled paper saves 17 trees.
  4. Save Water: The production of new paper requires heavy amounts of water. Recycled paper only requires half of the amount of water used to create new paper.

Overall, recycling paper is an important way to cut back on a huge loss of vital materials that would be thrown in landfills and never reused.

We shred paper that contains information about ourselves in order to avoid identity theft. Most cases we don’t even think about what happens to that paper afterwards. Recycling is a great way to protect the environment because it helps save water, trees, oil, and more. Contact us for more information about our SOS Green service.
