North America consumes more paper than any other continent on Earth. According to the Environmental Paper Network, the typical North American office worker uses 10,000 sheets of paper a year. Further, today’s waste stream consists of up to 40% paper, making it the most commonly discarded material on Earth.
Despite these stark statistics, you can help reverse the trend. By using a secure document shredding and paper recycling partner committed to green business practices, you can reduce your paper waste so our planet stays healthy and sustainable.
Shred Guard’s paper recycling program keeps your shredded and non-shredded paper out of the waste stream, reduces greenhouse emissions, minimizes deforestation, and preserves our natural resources. All paper destroyed with our NAID AAA Certified document destruction services is recycled and re-used in post-consumer paper products. Immediately after your documents are destroyed, the shredded material is baled, reduced to pulp, and used to produce a wide variety of consumer and business paper products. A secure chain of custody is maintained throughout our shredding and recycling process, so your information is always secure.
If we’re collecting non-sensitive material from you as part of our paper recycling service, it is also pulped, recycled and used to produce environmentally-friendly paper products.
We are just as committed to protecting and sustaining our planet’s resources as we are to safeguarding your privacy. Our mobile shred trucks are manufactured to reduce overall emissions and fuel consumption, while our document destruction bins are made with recycled materials. Each ton of paper we recycle saves:
Whether you choose Shred Guard for document shredding or direct paper recycling, you stand behind your commitment to the health of our planet!
