We are passionate about our environment. Not only do we protect our clients’ information through our range of fully-accredited shredding services, but all shredded paper is recycled back into paper products.

We know that all the offices, warehouses and homes that we visit produce paper on a daily, weekly and monthly basis. By ensuring that their information is protected, they can also ensure that the resulting shredded paper is put to good use, to the benefit of our environment.

Every kilogramme of paper we shred is diverted away from landfill or incineration and turned back into useful everyday products. Each tonne of recycled paper saves 17 trees, 380 gallons of oil, 3 cubic metres of landfill space, 4000 KW of energy and 7000 gallons of water. Using recycled paper produces 73% less air pollution compared to new paper produced from raw materials.

In order to directly impact on our local environment, Chaffinch Document is a corporate partner of Staffordshire Wildlife Trust. We support various environmental education initiatives aimed towards children and young people. For every tonne of paper that we shred, we donate to Staffordshire Wildlife Trust to help further their work.
