Green Statistics

Since 2005, Pacific Shredding has recycled 131,892,497 pounds of paper leading to a positive impact on our environment.

By recycling our paper, we save:




cubic yards of landfill space


barrels of oil


kWh of electricity


pounds of greenhouse gas emissions


gallons of
fresh water

As part of the recycling industry, the paper recycling segment collects, sorts, and processes recovered fiber into a specification grade material. That product is sold and transported to paper mills across the world for reprocessing and production into newsprint, new packaging, printer paper, tissue, and a myriad of other paper products.

According to recent statistics, every 2,000 pounds (1 ton) of recycled paper saves approximately:

  • 3.3 Cubic Yards of Landfill Space
  • 17 Trees
  • 9 Barrels of Oil
  • 650 kWh of Electricity
  • 60 Pounds of Air Pollutants
  • 7,000 Gallons of Water
