A big thank you to all that stopped by in spite of the rain, to dispose of sensitive documents, helping protect themselves from identity theft. We had a great turnout with a nice, steady participation throughout the four hours.
We collected 3 tons of shredded paper, which equals 6,000 lbs. That is the weight of two 2020 Toyota Priuses!
Our wonderful clients made a direct impact on the environment by saving:
51 mature trees
21,000 gallons of water
9 cubic yards of landfill space
6 barrels of oil
The energy equivalent of 495 gallons of gasoline
Each year, NCA donates 1 tree for every 10 lbs. shredded. This year, we’re proud to partner with the National Forest Foundation (nationalforests.org), donating 600 trees to be planted. Planting trees rebuilds healthy wildlife habitat, protects critical watersheds, enhances recreation experiences, and helps address global warming.
