American Shredding Believes In Sustainability and Recycling
At American Shredding, our commitment to environmental sustainability influences every aspect of our business. Whereas some shredding companies do not recycle their shredded paper due to small particle size, American Shredding recycles every single piece of paper it shreds no matter how small the particle size.
We recycle all metals and plastics that we destroy, and are constantly striving to find new ways to recycle products previously thought unable to be reused. Whether we serve you with paper shredding mobile trucks, hard drive destruction, Star Wars toy destruction, tennis shoes shredding, counterfeit merchandise shredding, or destroying poker chips, American Shredding finds a way to destroy any product presented to us, disposing of it in a sustainable fashion. To learn more about products we’ve destroyed and the companies we’ve helped to go green, please view our case studies.
Recycling is one of the most effective ways to combat climate change and preserve our natural resources.
Each ton (2000 pounds) of recycled paper can save 17 trees, 380 gallons of oil, 3 cubic yards of landfill space, 4,000 kilowatts of energy, and 7,000 gallons of water. When waste is recycled rather than thrown into a landfill, it diminishes the need to mine the earth for virgin materials, saving entire ecosystems from the environmental destruction that inherently accompanies mining. Recycling benefits the air and water by creating a net reduction in 10 major categories of air pollutants and 8 major categories of water pollutants.
When you shred with American Shredding, you receive services that are best not only for your company, but also for your environment.
