Recycling Shredded Materials
SafeGuard is committed to recycling as much of our shredded material as possible. Not only is our paper products recycled but all E-waste and E-scrap materials are recycled as well. You can be confident that your materials have been turned back into something useful, like recycled household paper products. Protecting the environment is important
to our company.
Industrial shredders for waste products play a key role in waste management and recycling in today's manufacturing and disposal industries. Shredding allows those materials that will end up buried forever in landfills to be compacted into a much smaller space with fewer voids, resulting in a more stable base for future development. In today's world, being "green" is ever-increasingly
more important. Our impact on the environment individually, corporately and as a community weighs heavily on how we're perceived by our clients, our friends and associates and the general public.
For every ton of paper that is recycled, the following is saved:
- 17 trees
- 275 pounds of sulfur
- 350 pounds of limestone
- 9,000 pounds of steam
- 60,000 gallons of water
- 225 kilowatt hours
- 3.3 cubic yards of landfill space
