We believe environmental responsibility lies with both companies and individuals and that this should be clearly reflected in what products are purchased and how they are finally disposed of; after all this is the only earth we have and its resources are finite.
A core part of the Shred Shed’s values is to ensure that we follow environmentally sound destruction processes. This includes the recycling of all shredded waste materials and promoting client re-use (stationery etc.) as far as possible.
Research ( www.conservatree.com ) has shown that for every ton of paper recycled, approximately 15 trees and 2 cubic metres of landfill space can be saved. Annual environmental achievement certificates are offered for regular clients so they are able to quantify their environmental contributions and achievements.
Recycled materials are typically re-used in the form of household paper, creative writing paper and packaging materials.
