Why shredding is your best recycling option!

With threats like pollution, global warming and deforestation increasingly in the news, we all want to find ways to minimise our impact on the environment. Recycling as much of our waste paper as possible is a great way to reduce our ecological footprint, but did you know that standard recycling options might not be the solution you think they are?

Recent news reports have exposed serious problems in Australia’s recycling system. Much of our recyclable waste is shipped overseas for processing, but foreign governments have been cracking down on imports of waste, leading to a huge stockpile of recyclables awaiting export. To make matters worse our recycling system is plagued by the problem of contamination, with non-recyclable material mixed in with recyclables. Sorting out this mix is very expensive, and leads to much of this material simply being consigned to landfill.

Then there’s the issue of security. Most people don’t think twice about throwing sensitive documents like bank and credit card statements into their council recycling bin, but such services are not secure, and doing so exposes you to the serious risk of identity theft and other fraudulent uses of your personal data.

Fortunately Australian Document Shredding Service offers a solution that keeps you safe while ensuring your waste paper really is recycled. We are one of Australia’s most trusted names in document destruction, with security that is second to none. Our staff and facilities are all cleared to high security standards, giving you peace of mind that your sensitive documents cannot fall into the wrong hands.
