We all have a stake in preserving our environment. PROSHRED® takes this responsibility seriously. We recycle all of the shredded paper that we process, partnering with you not only to increase your information security, but also to help you recycle for the benefit of the environment. We ensure that your shredded paper returns to the marketplace as recycled copy paper, tissue paper, paper towels, packaging, and other consumer paper products. Your information has been made unrecoverable after the state-of-the-art shredding process, so you can be certain that your data remains protected while helping the environment.
PROSHRED® recognizes your active commitment with our document destruction recycling and provides you with a TreeSaver Environment Certificate each year to indicate the number of trees your business has saved as a result of our ongoing relationship. To find out more on our TreeSaver Environmental Certificate, please contact your local PROSHRED® branch or call 1-87-PROSHRED.
Every year on Earth Day, PROSHRED® launches system-wide community shredding events for participating locations. On Monday, April 22nd was Earth Day 2013, and PROSHRED® Security conducted 19 community shredding events across 12 states utilizing more than 20 on-site document shredding trucks. It was the biggest Earth Day shred event in the company’s history. With tens of thousands of pounds of paper recycled, PROSHRED® protected the confidential information of hundreds of guests who attended.
We are focused on enhancing the information security of America’s small and medium enterprises (SME) through our secure “Document Destruction at Your Door” shredding and recycling system. Cumulatively, the PROSHRED® network recycled over 23,300 tons of paper in the last year, up 6% from 2011.
PROSHRED® estimates that the resulting recycled paper from its onsite shredding service has contributed to its customers, helping conserve over 396,100 trees, 8.9 million gallons of oil, 69,900 cubic yards of landfill space, 93.2 million kilowatt hours of energy (enough to power almost 11,000 average American homes for a year), 163 million gallons of water, and 1.4 million pounds of air pollution.
