Paper, Aluminum and Plastic Wins in the Recycle Game

According to the US Environmental Protection Agency, more than 60% of the paper we use is recycled.

Everyone likes to talk about “going green” and doing their part to save the environment.  At ShredTex, we do more than just talk.  We recycle 100% of the paper that we shred.

Our impact on the environment is more than just saving trees.  What many people don’t realize is that the process to turn trees into paper requires a significant amount of energy and water and adds pollutants into our air.  Consider this, recycling just one ton of paper saves about 7,000 gallons of water and 4,100 kilowatt hours of electricity.

So how does paper recycling impact the environment?  Consider 10 tons of paper, which is easily collected in a day.  Recycling saves 170 trees.  Take a look at the chart below for more information on the environmental impact of recycling.

One Ton of Recycled Paper Saves:

  • 7,000 Gallons of Water
  • 4,100 Kilowatts of Electricity
  • 60 Pounds of Air Pollutants
  • 17 Trees
  • 3 Cubic Yards of Landfill
  • 2 Gallons of Oil

Recycling Efforts of 10 Tons of Paper Saves:

  • 70,000  Gallons of Water
  • 41,000  Kilowatts of Electricity
  • 600 Pounds of Air Pollutants
  • 170 Trees
  • 30 Cubic Yards of Landfill
  • 20 Gallons of Oil

Protect Your Company’s Confidential Information and the Environment

If your organization is using an office shredder instead of a certified shredding service, chances are that at least one of your office mates is dumping shredded paper in the trash, instead of in the recycling bin.  That means your organization is NOT handling confidential information securely, which putting your company at risk.

Your company is subject to fines of $10,000 to $50,000 per record for “willful neglect” if you do not securely destroy confidential information. Throwing documents in the trash exposes confidential information to dumpster-divers and invites corporate theft.
