Going Green and Protecting the Environment

100% of all the paper that Shred City services gets recycled.  We are making a huge impact on the environment by saving thousands of trees every year.  We can provide your home or business with quarterly, bi-yearly, or yearly environmental impact reports with the total amount of paper shredded and recycled and the EPA estimated amount of trees, water, etc. you helped save. 


According to the EPA, for every ton of paper we recycle, we save:

  • 17 trees
  • 360 gallons of water
  • 3.3 cubic yards of landfill space
  • 100 gallons of gasoline
  • 60 lbs. of air pollution
  • 10,401 kilowatts of electricity
