In celebration of Earth Day, Pardee Hospital will partner with Shred-it
to offer a free paper shredding and recycling event for the community on April 20, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Justice Street parking lot.
“Pardee’s coordinated green initiatives has been a team effort here at the hospital. We’re proud that, along with Shred-It, we can offer this service free to our community leading up to Earth Day. If we can help make the environment that we all share healthier, we can also have a healthier community,” said Richard Prudhomme Director of Marketing and Communications.
Shred-it will provide two trucks and Shred-it representatives will help with handling documents from the public. Suggested materials include human resources reports, accounting and information technology documents, sales and marketing information, research and development plans, executive level information, and any personal information that needs to be securely destroyed.
After your sensitive material is collected, shredded and baled, all shredded materials are then recycled. All recycled paper contributes directly to the production of a wide assortment of paper products such as paper towels and paper plates. For every two security consoles filled with paper, one tree is saved through the recycling process.
