WHAT TO SHRED
We can shred and recycle just about anything –junk mail, personal information, tax returns, checks, files, paper, manila folders and much more! Do not worry about staples, rubber bands or paper clips – our machinery will handle those. Our state-of-the-art shredding equipment shreds all documents that go through it until information on the shred is unrecognizable. Your privacy is protected and it is our number one concern.
WHERE IT GOES
After being shred and baled at our facility in Utica, the paper shred is then shipped to large paper mills. The majority of our material stays right in New York State. At the mills, the shred is recycled and made into every day products such as toilet paper, paper towels and tissues. Not only is shredding your confidential documents good for your peace of mind and safety, but it is also good for the environment by taking part in a proven recycling process.
