Protecting Your Security .. Protecting Our Environment

Absolute Destruction & Recycling Corp. recycles all materials (including paper, plastic and electronic equipment) after they have been securely destroyed. We provide you with a "Guarantee of Recycling" after each shredding service is completed. It is your assurance that not only have you protected your security by having your records, documents and equipment permanently destroyed but you have protected our environment by having them recycled.

Nearly half of all trees cut in North America go to paper making, which is the largest single user of wood. Trees are often cut for paper if they are too small for lumber. Although trees are a renewable resource, replanted trees in farms are usually monocultures, not true forests; they are dosed with pesticides, herbicides, and fertilizers. In fact, trees do not need to be cut down to manufacture the paper but significant savings are realized in the use of water, energy, landfill space and reduction in pollution.
