Sustainability: A Shred Ahead

We're proud to make a difference and be part of the solution. Learn more about how we do it here.

One of the most common questions we hear is: “what do you do with all the paper you shred?” It’s a great question, since we shred many tons of paper every day. We looked at this challenge as an opportunity. At A Shred Ahead, we’re proud to recycle 100% of the paper we shred. We work closely with our network of qualified paper mills to ensure all of our shredded paper is reused properly. It’s also handled securely across the recycling process. But, we don’t stop there.

We're eco-friendly through our whole process

Sustainability at A Shred Ahead starts with our massive recycling program. We could have been satisfied with that, but we aren't. Instead, we've worked to build sustainability into our whole operation.

We strive to ensure that our whole operation is as environmentally friendly as possible. This includes minimizing waste in our offices. We’ve also invested in eco-friendly equipment and technology. Keep reading below to learn more. The benefits may surprise you!

We use eco-friendly consoles
We provide all of our clients with secure bins and consoles for on-site storage ahead of our shredding visits. All of our consoles feature low-emissions materials. Our rolling bins are 100% recyclable. They’re also incredible tough and secure for years of dependability.

Our trucks are ultra-efficient
We’ve invested heavily on our fleets of modern mobile shredding trucks. Simply put, they use less fuel per pound of paper shredded than any other system available. Our trucks also meet the EPA’s low-emissions standards by using ultra-low-sulfur diesel (ULSD) and B5 biodiesel.

Here’s some data on our results
Working with the EPA, we’ve been able to calculate the following stats about the results of our green initiatives. We’ve helped save this many resources:

  • 22,050 cubic yards of landfill material
  • 107,100 trees
  • 44,100,000 gallons of water
  • 2,394,000 gallons of oil
  • 25,830,000 kilowatts of electricity
  • 396,000 pounds of air pollutants
