You’ve brought in the experts to shred your confidential documents, but then you wonder—what happens to all that paper now? Where does it go?
The short answer is that all shredded paper is recycled.
All paper is made of fibers. The longer the fiber, the more valuable the paper is during the recycling process. The fibers in office paper are long and therefore more valuable as recyclable material and can be used for a wider variety of products. As paper is recycled over and over, the fibers become shorter and are then used for tissue or toilet paper.
Shredding documents shortens the fibers in office paper, which makes it mixed-grade paper, still recyclable but not accepted by all recycling service providers.
This is another great reason to use Document Destruction instead of dealing with shredding your personal or business documents yourself. In addition to shredding your documents on site, we also handle the recycling process so you never have the inconvenient discovery that your recycling service provider won’t take your shredded paper.
Otherwise your shredded paper could end up in the landfill instead of being reused.
