ShredStation's Commitment to the environment

Our business philosophy is to bring excellence in information security services to our clients in a way that lessens the impact upon the environment, and our Green Policy applies to every aspect of our business. At ShredStation Express, we continually look for ways to improve efficiency and reduce energy consumption in our operations, and support the conservation of natural resources through aggressive recycling practices.

100% Recycling Policy
All materials we destroy or process are recycled, but it doesn’t end there. We truly practice Reduce, Reuse Recycle throughout our company by recycling as many materials as possible, including aluminum, paper, plastic and steel. Reporting our annual tonnage to our local municipality returns grant dollars to the community that helps support the park system and further recycling initiatives.

Zero Emission Shredding
Our industrial shredding process produces no air pollution. With ShredStation Express, you get the benefit of high security data destruction services with no harmful diesel fume emissions in your parking lot or the atmosphere. Did you know that the exhaust from an idling diesel powered shredding truck emits fine particulate that can damage lungs and exacerbate health problems such as allergies and asthma? According to the EPA, particulates of this type contribute to the deaths of over 15,000 people a year in the United States alone. Click here to read a report on the dangers of diesel exhaust.
