Do your part for the environment and bring your recyclable paper to SAFESHRED

Since 1995, SAFESHRED has been in the vanguard of forward-thinking companies that have searched for and designed new ways to recycle materials that would otherwise go to waste. After we complete the shredding process, 100% of our paper is recycled, going directly to our paper mill partners – with no middleman or reselling of these materials.

Keeping Destroyed Products Out Of Landfills.

When you work with SAFESHRED, you become part of a bigger program to help sustain the environment. Recycling is one of the best ways to combat pollution and preserve our natural resources. When waste is recycled rather than disposed of in a landfill, it lessens the need to use new raw materials, saving entire ecosystems from additional degradation and overuse. Recycling benefits the air and water by creating a net reduction in 10 major categories of air pollutants and 8 major categories of water pollutants. When you shred with SAFESHRED, you follow policies that are not only the best for your company, but for the environment.

Taking it further.

At SAFESHRED sustainability is an essential part of our process. We work hard to make sure that our operations are environmentally friendly and minimize waste. We choose suppliers that run their own green programs and share our commitment to the environment.

Our sustainability efforts include:

•  Eco-friendly Consoles – Our security bins feature low-emissions materials, while still providing the security and durability our customers require. These containers exceed the standards set by recently enacted California environmental regulations. 

•  Energy-efficient Shredding Trucks – Our late-model shredding trucks use less fuel per pound of paper shredded than any other company in the business. Additionally, vehicles meet the EPA’s low emissions standards through the use of efficient fuel.

Making the right choices.

As responsible partners, SAFESHRED is committed to making the right choices for our customers and the world we all share. Choose SAFESHRED’s eco-friendly, energy-efficient processes and turn your company’s disposal problems into part of the solution for a better environment.
