When you partner with Greenway Shredding & Recycling, your business can fulfill its environmental responsibilities as well as its document security needs.
There are a number of environmental benefits to recycling. According to the EPA, making one ton of paper using recycled fiber saves the following:
3.3 cubic yards of landfill space
380 gallons of oil
4,000 kilowatts of energy
7,000 gallons of water
Saves enough energy to power the average American home for six months
Reduces greenhouse gas emissions by one metric ton of carbon equivalent
60 lbs. less of air pollution
The cost to produce paper from paper waste is 50%-80% less than the cost of a mill using new pulp.
Greenway’s recycling service is simple- the paper products collected are destroyed and then sent to paper mills to be recycled into usable products. These products may include office paper, cardboard, greeting cards, wrapping paper, and paper towels.
Need recycling services for your business? Choose one of Greenway’s secure discarded document receptacles to keep at your office, and we will schedule a regular pickup time that works for you- whether that’s weekly, biweekly, or monthly.
