You don’t need us to explain to you why document destruction is important. If you work in or own a business, there’s a good chance you deal with important, sensitive or confidential information every single day – and with identity theft running rampant these days, you can’t afford to take any chances. That’s one of the best and most obvious things we can offer you at Absolute Destruction – the certainty that your documents will be securely disposed of, and the peace of mind that comes with knowing all your information is safe in good, trustworthy hands.
But do you know about the other benefits our services can offer you, your business, and the environment at large? Chances are, if you’re like most people, you’ve never thought of our services as doing much beyond taking care of your documents once you’re done with them, but the reality is that by taking care of your documents with Absolute Destruction, you’re doing the environment a favour, and doing a great deal to advance the cause of eco-friendliness within your own office.
Every single document from every single client that we shred ends up being recycled: this is one of the cornerstones of our business, and a guarantee that we feel confident extending to all of our clients. Our process works like this: we provide you and your office with boxes or bins that are sized to fit your particular needs, free of charge. These bins are lockable, secure, and not bulky or unwieldy, meaning you should be able to fit them into any part of your office where you normally keep recycling or garbage. You fill these bins with any documents you need to dispose of, and then when we come to pick them up, we transport the bins to our secure facility. Your documents are shredded, then taken to a recycling facility. Paper is one of the greatest threats to the safety of trees in our ecosystem, and far too many trees are cut down every single day in order to make the paper we use and take for granted all too often in our offices.
Paper manufacturing isn’t just hard on trees, either – the process is a drain on all kinds of other resources, including water, energy, and the precious landfill space that we find ourselves more and more in need of every year as it continues to disappear. By offering recycling services for all of the paper we shred, we hope to offset some of the environmental damage the paper manufacturing industry causes. New and useable paper can be made out of recycled materials – we don’t need to cut down new trees to do it. If your office is one of the many that are (admirably) endeavoring to contribute to larger-scale green initiatives, or if you simply want the extra satisfaction that comes with knowing you are contributing to the health of the environment without having to put in the extra work planting new trees yourself, using our services is an excellent way to ensure your business is both secure and eco-friendly. Get in touch with us today and let’s see what we can do to help the environment together.
