PROSHRED®’s secure “DOCUMENT DESTRUCTION AT YOUR DOOR” shredding and recycling system helps thousands of businesses and residents enhance information security and fulfill their obligation to the environment

Document Destruction At Your Door
Our annual Operation Shredding event was a huge success again this year. 88,000 pounds of documents were shredded.

Focused on enhancing the information security of America’s small and medium enterprises (SME's) through its secure “DOCUMENT DESTRUCTION AT YOUR DOOR” shredding and recycling system, PROSHRED® is pleased to announce that its network of locally managed and nationally operated shredding operations recycled over 44,000,000 pounds of paper in the last year.

PROSHRED® estimates that the resulting recycled paper from its onsite shredding service has contributed to its customers helping conserve over 300,000 trees, 7,600,000 gallons of oil, 60,000 cubic yards of landfill space, 80,000,000 kilowatt hours of energy (enough to power 8,000 average American homes for a year), 140,000,000 gallons of water, and 1,200,000 pounds of air pollution.

In addition to servicing America’s largest market sector in the SME space, PROSHRED® actively provides onsite shredding for residential customers and hosts a calendar of ongoing Community Shredding Events across the country to help curb identity theft and protect personal information. Over the last year PROSHRED® has hosted over 140 Community Shredding Events throughout the United States.

“We are committed to protecting the confidential information of our business clients, we are committed to curbing identity theft of consumers through our services and shredding events, and we are also dutifully committed to doing our part for the environment,” commented Tim Tibbs, Chief Operating Officer of PROSHRED®. “And with Earth Day 2011 upon us, we are excited about the numerous community events we have been and continue to be involved in during the 2011 year,” continued Mr. Tibbs.

PROSHRED® believes onsite document destruction at the customer location, supported by the first-rate processes imbedded in ISO 9001 and NAID AAA Certification, is the best method for businesses and consumers to ensure their private information is securely destroyed and then recycled. With privacy and corporate legislation continuing to tighten businesses and individuals cannot afford the risks of poor service or the lack of security with their shredding services.

PROSHRED® is in a unique position as the only provider of onsite paper shredding and recycling services to be ISO 9001 and NAID AAA Certified by the International Organization for Standardization and the National Association for Information Destruction. PROSHRED®’s dual certification reflects its ongoing commitment to information security, customer service and continuous quality improvement to all of its customers and affiliates.
