Spring invites home and business owners alike to do some spring cleaning, get rid of the clutter, and refresh their space. For some, particularly businesses, this could mean unloading a large volume of paper you’ve been storing that’s now worn out its welcome. If there’s no need to hang on to documents, why keep the clutter? Deciding to let go of unnecessary documents taking up space is a great way to have a fresh start, but it’s important to make sure it’s done the right way. Many people know by now not to just throw documents that contain sensitive information in the trash due to the risk of information theft, not to mention how wasteful it is. However, plenty of people instead take their unwanted papers to the recycling center, thinking they’re making the responsible choice. With Earth Day approaching, we commend people wanting to free up their paper clutter in a sustainable way through recycling, but simply recycling papers don’t provide security. There is a way to maintain both safety and sustainability, and you can experience it easily through Shred America’s convenient document shredding service.
