SHREDDING IS GREEN
It can be tough to feel like you’re making a difference. So many things are bigger than one person, like climate change. But even small choices make a impact.
American Shredding helps the environment by recycling — a lot. We recycled over 2 million pounds last month alone. Think about it: if you didn’t shred your paper, you might throw it away. And besides an ID theft nightmare that would mean tons more trash.
A ton of paper made from 100% recycled saves 17 trees, 7000 gallons water, 60 lbs air-polluting effluents, 4100 KWH electricity, and 3 cubic yards landfill space. So every time you shred and recycle a 20 lb file box, we save 1% of that.
And that makes a difference!
American Shredding recycles 100% of our shredded paper. Overall, we've recycled over 100,000 tons of paper!
This means we've saved:

70 million gallons water
