Earth Day Community Shredding Events and Raising Awareness on Protecting the Environment

Earth Day 2013 Community Shredding Events across the US

We always strive to raise awareness.

Tuesday April 22nd was Earth Day 2014, and PROSHRED® Security is holding over 15 community shredding events throughout the week across 8 states using countless on-site document shredding trucks. With tens of thousands of pounds of paper recycled, PROSHRED® has protected and will continue protecting the confidential information of hundreds of guests who attended these events.

“We want to thank everyone for coming to our Earth Day shredding events this week, as we always strive to raise awareness on how document shredding protects our communities and our client’s identity as well as benefiting the environment”, commented Andrew Parry, Vice President of Sales and Operations of PROSHRED®.

Focused on enhancing the information security of America’s small and medium enterprises 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 25,100 tons of paper in the last year, up from 23,300 in 2012.

PROSHRED® estimates that the resulting recycled paper from its onsite shredding service has contributed to its customers helping conserve over 427,600 trees, 9.5 million gallons of oil, 75,400 cubic yards of landfill space, 100.6 million kilowatt hours of energy, 176.1 million gallons of water, and 1.5 million pounds of air pollution.

PROSHRED® also provides our clients with a “Secure Document Facility” online badge that lets their network know that they are committed to the security and proper disposal of all confidential information in their facility as well as their efforts to recycle destroyed documents and help protect the environment.
