Benefits of Secure Commercial Recycling

Shredded Neat destroy tons of paper daily, therefore it is essential we take an eco-friendly approach to shredding confidential data.

Operating to the highest standards, we pride ourselves on being an environmentally responsible company, recycling 100% of the paper we shred, as well as cardboard and electrical/electronic wastes.

Many companies are now also going green and supporting the country’s national recycling commitment, but why is it so important we recycle?

Benefits of Secure Commercial Recycling

Recycling is vital to the future of the planet, as landfill sites are growing, and the disposing of paper alongside computer hardware, can be potentially harming when left to break down.

There are a whole host of benefits that recycling paper has on the environment, from saving trees and their animal inhabitants to conserving water and reducing landfill.

The reduction of greenhouse gas emissions is also a factor which benefits the environment. However, recycling can also offer company benefits, such as the business’ reputation and cutting both costs and your carbon footprint.

When you choose Shredded Neat as your shredding partner, everything you shred will be taken back to our warehouse for baling and recycling. This includes everything from, envelopes, magazines, brochures, books and leaflets, to catalogues, cards and even wrapping paper.

How can we recycle efficiently?

Recovered paper is the most important raw material for the UK paper industry, representing over 70% of the fibre used for new paper and cardboard. Therefore, it is beneficial measures are put in place to ensure as much as possible is being recycled.

The shift in social attitudes towards recycling, means office environments often have a recycling program, which identifies factors such as, what needs recycling, evaluating the amount you are expecting to recycle and implementing recycling bins.

With the right program and equipment in place, managing your recycling can make an impact on the amount of waste diverted from landfill.

What does WEEE stand for?

WEEE stands for Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment. The WEEE directive came into force in 2007, to ensure manufacturers of electrical and electronic equipment are responsible for disposing of unwanted items in an environmentally-friendly way.
