Saving The Environment Through Shredding
One of the most visible benefits to living in America is the astounding natural beauty that we’re surrounded by every day. As our population grows, however, efforts to reuse and recycle materials must become a priority in order to preserve these same spaces for future generations to enjoy.
With that in mind, The Data Vault is proud to contribute our time and energy to the cause. As a component of our media and paper shredding services, in 2014 we recycled:
- 852,000 pounds of paper
- 10,000 magnetic tape drives and compact discs
- 2,000 hard drives
- 1,500 pounds of assorted electronic waste
Throughout the year, 100% of all material collected through our secure consoles goes to a no waste processing facility after being shredded and large parts of the hard drives that are destroyed can have their precious metals extracted for reuse.
All together, our recycling efforts saved the equivalent of: 7,250 trees, 162,000 gallons of oil, 2,982,000 gallons of water, and 1,704,000 kilowatts of electricity! With your help, we can all do our part in helping keep our planet a cleaner place for everyone.
