A-1 Shredding recycles! See the benefits and how you’re helping save the environment

According to http://www.recycling-revolution.com/recycling-facts.html May 30, 2012

Bundled Newspaper

Paper Recycling Facts

Bullet To produce each week’s Sunday newspapers, 500,000 trees must be cut down.
Bullet Recycling a single run of the Sunday New York Times would save 75,000 trees.
Bullet If all our newspaper was recycled, we could save about 250,000,000 trees each year!
Bullet If every American recycled just one-tenth of their newspapers, we would save about 25,000,000 trees a year.
Bullet If you had a 15-year-old tree and made it into paper grocery bags, you’d get about 700 of them. A busy supermarket could use all of them in under an hour! This means in one year, one supermarket can go through over 6 million paper bags! Imagine how many supermarkets there are just in the United States!!!
Bullet The average American uses seven trees a year in paper, wood, and other products made from trees. This amounts to about 2,000,000,000 trees per year!
Bullet The amount of wood and paper we throw away each year is enough to heat 50,000,000 homes for 20 years.
Bullet Approximately 1 billion trees worth of paper are thrown away every year in the U.S.
Bullet Americans use 85,000,000 tons of paper a year; about 680 pounds per person.
Bullet The average household throws away 13,000 separate pieces of paper each year. Most is packaging and junk mail.
Bullet In 1993, U.S. paper recovery saved more than 90,000,000 cubic yards of landfill space.
Bullet Each ton (2000 pounds) of recycled paper can save 17 trees, 380 gallons of oil, three cubic yards of landfill space, 4000 kilowatts of energy, and 7000 gallons of water. This represents a 64% energy savings, a 58% water savings, and 60 pounds less of air pollution!
Bullet The 17 trees saved (above) can absorb a total of 250 pounds of carbon dioxide from the air each year. Burning that same ton of paper would create 1500 pounds of carbon dioxide.
Bullet The construction costs of a paper mill designed to use waste paper is 50 to 80% less than the cost of a mill using new pulp.

Beautiful day to shred in the Valley of the Sun!

What a beautiful day and a great reminder as to why this Arizona region is referred to as “The Valley of the Sun.”  It’s motivating to be out and about shredding around the Valley and while we’re in the Top 10 for Identity Theft, its good to be reminded that our great state is still a wonderful place to live and work (not to mention shred and recycle!).  We’d love to help our local community protect the identities of their loyal customers, hardworking employees and all the people you care about.  Give us a call or e-mail us today for a free quote or to schedule business or residential shredding! We appreciate your business!

Document Shredding: What should you shred and when should you shred it???*

Document shredding: what should you shred, and when should you shred it?

You hear advice all the time that you should shred sensitive documents to reduce your risk of identity theft. However, what exactly are “sensitive documents,” and are there some you should keep for a while before destroying them?

What documents should I shred?

In general, you should shred documents that contain any of the following:

  • Account numbers
  • Passwords
  • PINs
  • Signatures
  • Social Security number
  • Date of birth

Basically, this is all the information that could be used by an identity thief to impersonate you. I also like to shred anything that has my name, address, email address, phone number and other less-sensitive information. Yes, I know most of this information is available in the phone book. It’s just a privacy thing. Still, not everybody needs to know I subscribe to Mother Earth News and Writer’s Digest.

Oh wait, I guess now everybody does know. So, how long should you keep documents before shredding them?

Junk Mail

I basically shred all junk mail that isn’t addressed to “Occupant” or “Resident,” especially credit offers. It’s just too easy for someone to fill out that form, mail it in with an address “correction,” and end up with a credit card in your name. Shred immediately.

Credit Card Receipts

I’ve heard you should keep them for 45 days, but to be honest I pretty much shred them after I’ve checked for errors and paid the bill. Plus, I think it’s time to sign up for online billing if you can. They can’t steal your mail or find a bill in the trash if there’s no paper bill in the first place.

Tax Documents

Keep them for at least seven years, then shred away. This is assuming you’re doing everything correctly and filing a return every year.

Mortgage Documents

Keep these, as well as documents of any improvements, for six years after you sell the property in question.

Pay Stubs

One year, or at least until you’ve made sure they agree with your W-2.

Medical Records

One year is the standard, in case of billing errors or disputes. I’d probably go ahead and make it a little longer.

Credit Union/Bank Statements

Keep them for one year. Really, I think you should just get the electronic statements where available. Nothing for them to steal, nothing for you to shred.

Insurance Documents

Life of the policy plus five years. This was actually news to me. I’m sure I’ve shredded some things that I sure don’t hope I need now.

Should I shred receipts?

I generally shred for any kind of electronic transaction (ATM withdrawal, credit card purchase), even though they blank most of your card number out. Actually, since I use cash for most purchases these days, I don’t bother with retail receipts. I shred ATM receipts, though. It just feels like I should, whether that’s logical or not.

Should I shred utility bills?

Yes. After you’ve paid your bill, you can pretty much shred these unless they contain tax-deductible expenses. In that case, you’ll need to keep them with your “tax stuff.”
