Professional paper shredding and recycling services are more cost effective and secure than in-house paper shredding.
It can be expensive, not to mention a waste of resources, to have employees shredding paper and documents with cheap paper shredders. Think about what it costs to have one employee spend a combined total of one hour a month (a very realistic estimate) shredding paper. Now multiply those wages by the number of employees you have and you begin to see how a professional, mobile, secure paper shredding service can actually save you money every month.
Here are a few ways you save money by shredding and recycling:
- You don't need to pay your employees to shred paper
- Don't purchase shredding equipment and try keeping it working
- It isn't necessary to remove paper clips and staples
- There is no mess to clean up after shredding large volumes
- You don't have to pay to dispose of the paper

Go Green. We don't recycle just because it's the "in" thing to do. We do it because it's the RIGHT thing to do.
Every 2000 pounds of recycled paper can save 17 trees, 380 gallons of oil, three cubic yards of landfill space, 4000 kilowatts of energy, and 7000 gallons of water. This represents a 64% energy savings, a 58% water savings, and 60 pounds less of air pollution. 17 trees saved can absorb a total of 250 pounds of carbon dioxide from the air each year. Burning that same ton of paper would create 1500 pounds of carbon dioxide.
The United States Environmental Protection Agency? (EPA) has found that recycling causes 35% less water pollution and 74% less air pollution than making virgin paper. Knowing that we're making the planet a better place for future generations is our duty. Most importantly, it feels good.
