Further Information about Eco-Shred Document Destruction Services According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), “paper makes up 28% of municipal solid waste, more than any other material Americans throw away. …Recycling paper can greatly reduce the overall amount of [municipal solid waste] produced. …Recycling reduces greenhouse gas emissions, conserves natural resources, and saves landfill space. According to the American Forest and Paper Association, nearly 80% of America’s paper mills are designed to use paper collected in recycling programs, and they depend on paper recycling to supply the raw materials they need to make new paper.”

Many landfills are nearing capacity and local, regional, and state governments are seeking ways to reduce the amount of municipal solid waste. Significant progress toward this goal can be achieved through waste paper recycling. Recycling offers the opportunity to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, decrease the amount of waste disposed in landfills, decrease the cost of landfill disposal, reduce energy and water consumption, and provide a renewable source of fiber for recycled paper production.

CLASS’ Eco-Shred Document Destruction Services project began in 2003 as a result of community and company need. Eco-Shred Document Destruction Services is designed to reduce and redirect waste paper, while at the same time, provide employment opportunities for individuals with intellectual or other developmental disabilities, and meet the needs of community businesses, service organizations, and individuals.
