Is paper shredding on it’s way out? While paper usage is lower, it’s still important to protect both your paper and data records securely.
Paper Recycling Success
Paper recycling has been and continues to be an environmental success story because of innovation, investment and public engagement. Data from the American Paper Institute shows that paper recycling rates have increased from about 20 percent in 1990 to more than 60 percent today.
Good for the Environment
The U.S. EPA estimates that recycling saves more than 2 billion cubic yards of landfill space each year, enough to fill the Empire State Building 40 times over. Recycling is a success story! It is good for the environment and good for your business.
Why Paper Recycling is Good for Business?
