Cumulatively through 2019 our annual client document shredding events (begun in 2012) have recycled over 21,000 pounds of paper or the equivalent of saving more than 150 trees, 64,383 gallons of water, 67 barrells of oil, 39,700 kilowatt hours of electricity (enough to power the average american home for over three years) and we've been able to donate over 675 lbs of canned goods/food to The Food Bank of Delaware.
