Paper Recycling Programme

Paper Recycling Programme

It is estimated that 95% of business information is still stored on paper.[Source: International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED) Discussion Paper (IIED, London, September 1996)]

Recycling 1 short ton (0.91 t) of paper saves 17 mature trees, 7 thousand gallons (26 m3) of water, 3 cubic yards (2.3 m3) of landfill space, 2 barrels of oil (84 gal or 320 l), and 4,100 kilowatt-hours (15 GJ) of electricity – enough energy to power the average home for six months.

Once materials have been shredded on site at a customer’s facility, they are subsequently baled and recycled into a variety of useful paper products. This process ensures that our customers’ confidential information is always disposed of in the most secure way possible, whilst helping save the environment in the process.

So if recycling is part of your organisation’s environmental policy, we can help you fulfil your green commitments. At the end of each year we provide our regularly-scheduled shred clients with an Environmental Certificate indicating the number of trees, landfill, barrels of oil, and electricity saved by using ecoshred’s services.
