At Sun City Records Management, our goal is not only to help companies securely store or shred documents, but to also help minimize waste in our world through recycling. Thanks to your confidence in using Sun City Records Management for shredding and recycling in El Paso, we’re continuing to make a positive impact on the environment!
In fact, in 2018 we:
Doubled shredding production
Our continued growth in serving El Paso businesses allowed us to double shredding production from 1 million to 2 million pounds of paper. That’s equal to 1,000 tons or about 1,425 bales of paper. Picture 167 elephants: Their combined weight would be equal to the amount of paper we shredded last year.
We recycled every piece of paper and cardboard
Those 1,425 bales of shredded paper would fill 45 18-wheeler trucks! Every single piece, including paper and cardboard, was sent to the paper mill for recycling last year. Working with the paper mill ensures that these shredded documents avoid the landfill and get repurposed into the recycled paper and paper goods items you use nearly every day. To protect your security, we adhere to strict standards for preventing stolen information in the shredding and recycling process.
We saved 17,000 trees
Our recycling efforts help ensure that we are using more recycled paper and products, allowing us to play a part in saving trees. Additionally, these efforts help the environment in other ways: By helping minimize the production of new paper, we saved 380,000 gallons of oil, 3,000 cubic yards of landfill space, 7,000,000 gallons of water, and 60,000 pounds of air pollution.
Not bad for the only local, family-owned shredding and records storage company here in El Paso. You continue to make these efforts possible, and we’re proud to be part of this community. Thanks to all our customers for your support, to our employees for their hard work, and to God and family for making it happen. Let’s see what we can do in 2019 to make an even greater impact!
