Document Shredding and Recycling

Every year, over 12 million tonnes of paper is used in the UK. Shockingly, less than half of this is recycled. Most of the rest goes to landfills and is lost. Paper that is recycled generates 73% less air pollution than from raw materials. As a company, it is always beneficial to show off your green credentials and lower your carbon footprint. Therefore, you should ensure that as much of your waste is recycled as possible.

Where ever possible, we will recycle all of our shredded materials

At Secure Storage Services, we are committed to fulfilling our environmental responsibilities by recycling as much of our waste materials as possible. When you use our document shredding service, you can rest safely without the worry of the environmental impact of your waste.

Benefits to you

As a company, there are many reasons why you should want to recycle your disposed documents. Some of these include:

  • Landfill tax – Companies who do not recycle their waste will have to pay a tax to dispose of it. In April 2014, the tax for active waste will go up to £80 per tonne. Therefore, the cost of recycling paper is actually lower than the cost of sending it to a landfill
  • Increased reputation – Showing off your green credentials can improve your reputation as a brand and make you more appealing to potential clients and customers.
  • Public pressure – There is increasing pressure on companies and businesses to improve their environmental performance. Stay ahead of the game by recycling your waste.
  • Easy to do – At Secure Storage Services, we do it all for you. So there is nothing to stop you recycling your waste documents.
