Who Benefits From Product Destruction?

​Benefits Your Business

Using professional product destruction services is extremely beneficial to your business. Demolishing expired or damaged products helps protect your brand and keep your items out of the grey market. After all, you don’t want to be linked with products that fail to meet your standards and don’t adhere to your company values.

Destroying old uniforms, ID badges, business cards and more protect you from someone falsely claiming to work at your business and being able to enter secure locations.

Product destruction gives you what you want most…peace of mind when it comes to protecting your business and reputation.

Benefits Your Consumers

Destroying your off-spec items benefits consumers. Sometimes, products fail quality control checks when they do not meet standards. Products fail inspection for many reasons, including safety, so eliminating them helps protect consumers. Again, you don’t want your products to land in the grey market where scammers can sell your defective or expired items online. This can lead to bad reviews of your products and a strain on your company’s reputation.

Product destruction ensures that your consumers will only receive quality items and keeps your reputation intact.

Benefits The Environment

Every product destruction method American Shredding uses works to keep whole materials out of landfills. Shredded papers and crushed products can go through recycling and find new life. Our goal is to eliminate commercial waste without introducing it back into the environment, where it will wreak havoc and add to global warming.

At American Shredding, our shredded material is combined with material from multiple other sources, baled, and recycled to make new products. This way, you get the best of both worlds: brand security and environmental protection.

Watch us in action!

cosmetics

Case Studies:
 
​Cosmetics: 
Cosmetics destruction involves a mixed material stream with paper, plastic, liquids and solvents. We sort these into batches for shredding, recycling, incineration and/or hazmat.

Food and Wine: 
Specialized shredders separate contents from packaging. Whenever possible, we route organics to animal feed or a biodigester and recycle the packaging.

Uniforms and Apparel: 
Our shredders can handle most any type of uniform or fabric. Depending on the fiber, we work with specialized mills to shred recycle your material and re-weave it into recycled fleece.

Defective Products: 
Cell phone cases? Pacemakers? Headphones? Whatever you have, we'll run it through a massive shredder and find the right recycling channel.
