We all have a stake in protecting our environment. PROSHRED® of Houston takes this responsibility seriously. All of the shredded paper that we shred is then collected for recycling. We partner with you not only to enhance your information security, but with your commitment to recycling, we all work together to better the state of the environment. Our approach ensures that shredded paper returns to the marketplace as recycled copy paper, tissue paper, paper towels, packaging and alternative consumer paper products.

Every year on Earth Day, PROSHRED® launches system-wide, community shredding events for nearby 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 mobile shred trucks. It was the most successful Earth Day shred event in the company’s history. With tens of thousands of pounds of paper recycled, PROSHRED® maintained the privacy of hundreds of guests who attended the event.
Focused on improving the information security of America’s small and medium enterprises (SME) through its secure “Document Destruction at Your Door” shredding and recycling program, PROSHRED’®s network of locally managed and nationally operated shredding operations 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 approximately 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.
