Earth Day 2013 Community Shredding Events Across the US

Committed to doing our part for the environment

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 extremely pleased with the outcome of the company’s record-breaking shredding events for Earth Day 2013. We are always 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 Andrew Parry, Vice President of Operations of PROSHRED®.

Focused on enhancing the information security of America’s small and medium enterprises (SME) 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 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.

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 county to help curb identity theft and protect sensitive information. Over the last year, PROSHRED® has hosted over 168 Community Shredding Events across the United States.

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 later 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® shreds and recycles confidential documents and proprietary materials for thousands of customers in the United States in all industry sectors. PROSHRED® is a pioneer in the mobile document destruction and recycling industry. It is PROSHRED®’s vision to be the ‘system of choice’ and to provide shredding and recycling services on a global basis.
