Try Plant Based Shredding in Dallas/ Fort Worth area

Paul Simonetti has been working closely with our Arlington, Texas plant for six years and he serves the greater Dallas/ Fort Worth environs. He implements new recycling programs for his clients that reduce waste handling costs, reduce carbon footprint, and generate a revenue stream based on the sale of the recyclables. In Arlington, we have an unusually powerful secure shredding system located indoors. Here, material flows by conveyor through a sequence of three cross cut shredders so that all of the information is rendered unreadable and mixed up thoroughly in the process. More and more clients are finding it both useful and cost-effective to bring their materials in to us for destruction. Paul even offers this service to other shredding companies who only have mobile trucks and have no locked, indoor shredding facility.

Hospitals, financial businesses, and agencies that use private data must keep that information safe and they have document retention and destruction schedules to keep track of how to keep or destroy that information. During an annual purge last year for one of his clients, Paul arranged for 2000 hard drives to be destroyed. Every year he destroys more than fifty truckloads of old paper tax records for the IRS. Afterwards, the paper is baled for recycling. He provides secure destruction services to numerous hospitals and financial companies and agencies for confidential information on paper, hard drives, servers, and data tapes. Plant-based Shredding is safe, cost-effective and efficient.

Paul is well versed in all types of shredding, destruction, and recycling services for American Shredding and Green Planet 21. Watch him in the video below. Call him today to find out how he can help your business or workplace.
