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 21,900 tons 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 315,000 trees, 8.3 million gallons of oil, 65,000 cubic yards of landfill space, 87.6 million kilowatt hours of energy (enough to power almost 11,000 average American homes for a year), 153 million gallons of water, and 1.3 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 146 Community Shredding Events across 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 Jeff Hasham, Chief Executive Officer of PROSHRED®. “And with Earth Day 2012 upon us, we are excited about the numerous community events we have been and continue to be involved in throughout the 2012 year,” continued Mr. Hasham.
