At Shred Station, we want to help you be a greener business. That’s why we take an eco-friendly approach to destroying confidential data and reducing your carbon footprint according to our own ISO 14001 Environmental Certification – as well as sharing knowledge about what happens to shredded material.
Zero tolerance for landfill
We guarantee that absolutely none of the material we shred goes to landfill.
All paper-based waste is recycled and sent to UK processing mills, significantly reducing the carbon used in transporting baled material and the recycling process itself.
Non-paper material, such as shredded clothing and data tapes, go to an Energy from Waste Plant where it is incinerated under strict controls to provide energy for the National Grid.
Shred a tonne, plant a tree
Many of the things we do every day, from shopping to driving a car, produce carbon-dioxide emissions that cause climate change.
We can’t eliminate CO2 completely, but we can use carbon offsets to compensate for the emissions resulting from our actions.
We offer customers the option to have a tree planted for every tonne of paper we shred on their behalf.
Each new tree helps to offset the carbon used in the shredding process, supporting our mission to create a greener planet in partnership with our customers.
