Why should you shred your documents?

To protect yourself from identity theft

Identity theft is now the fastest growing crime in the country. Most identity theft is done through criminals simply collecting papers thrown in the trash. By shredding these papers, they never sit in a dumpster to be collected by criminals.

You can save time

Manually ripping or cutting documents can take a long time, not to mention the threat of paper cuts! Shredding documents is a quick and easy way to dispose of papers which are no longer needed.

It makes recycling easier

The documents that you shred will be recycled.

For every 1 ton of paper recycled:

  • 7000 gallons of water are saved
  • Between 17 and 31 trees are saved
  • 4000 KWh of electricity is saved
  • 60 pounds of air borne pollutants are not expelled
