Recycling Company Offers On-Site Shredding Services in Williston

News
Important documents often contain valuable information. That’s why proper document disposal can be an important safeguard.
 
“If the wrong people get their hands on those, we could have a problem,” says Joe Pfalzgraf, safety coordinator for North Dakota Recycling Services. 
 
Many prefer on-site shredding; as opposed to off-site. That’s because documents shredded on-site are often destroyed before your very eyes.
 
“It’s giving them the ability for us to shred that for them, save on labor, increase the security of those documents,” says Pfalzgraf.
 
But for some, document shredding is less about protecting themselves and more about protecting the environment.
 
“We’re trying to make a better place for our kids to live when we get older. We produce a lot of trash so every other house has to also,” says Williston resident Megan Davison.
 
According to Environmental Protection Agency, paper and paperboard make up the greatest portion of materials found in our trash. But the majority of paper and paperboard is recycled.
 
As is the paper shredded at North Dakota Recycling Services. 
 
“As many of those recyclables as we can pull out and go through the proper streams to get recycled, that increases the life span of our landfill so we don’t have to look for other land to do that with,” says Pfalzgraf.
 
It can take years to accumulate boxes of important documents. But with paper shredding, it only takes minutes for them to be gone. 
 
North Dakota Recycling Services estimates that it keeps more than 250,000 pounds of recyclable materials out of landfills each month.
