Guardian Data Solutions revealed its 2011 paper recycling data in a February 14 news announcement.

According to their news release, paper recycling is alive and well in Bermuda with nearly 90% of the paper waste generated from Guardian's secure document destruction service being recycled in 2011, compared to 80% in 2010.


"In 2011 we sent 22 shipping containers of shredded and baled paper to Guardian's recycling partner in the United States, and since 2005 our clients have helped us to send almost 1.3 million pounds of paper or 130 million destroyed documents for recycling," said Len Aitken, Guardian's President. "Our recycling partner converts this material into useful items such as toilet paper, tissue paper, napkins and paper towels."

"By recycling this amount of paper we estimate (based on the US EPA and other web sources) that this has saved:

• 10,940 Trees

• 38,600 Pounds of air pollutants

• 244,500 Gallons of oil

• 2,638,000 Kilowatt hours of electricity

• 4,504,000 Gallons of water"

"We have our clients to thank for this achievement and we look forward to signing up new clients and increasing our efforts in 2012 and beyond."
