Looking Back – 2021 Year in Review – This year has been an especially great one for Legal Shred as we are looking back.

Here is a quick rundown of our highlights reel from the past year as we are looking back upon the year. As always, be sure to check back with our blog to see all the topics we’re discussing and reach out to us with questions or to set up a shredding pick up in your area. 

Here’s to a prosperous 2022!


..We’re Named in the 2021 Inc. 5000 List…

This year we had the honor of once again being named to the prestigious Inc. 5000 List by Inc. Magazine.The 2021 Inc. 5000 list honors businesses that are fast growing and lists the  most successful private companies in the country based on their success over the course of a year.  We place No. 3681 on the list for 2021 in recognition of our 91% 3-Year Growth!  Legal Shred was also named to the list back in 2017. 

…We Opened a New Location in New Jersey…

In response to the demand for our services across the Tristate area, we have launched another location to serve the New Jersey area with professional shredding services to insure the safety of confidential documents for businesses across that region. We have built a solid reputation on taking our processes very seriously. We follow all guidelines regarding material being processed and have implemented those same services for counties in New Jersey where our document destruction services are now available. 

…Our Most Asked Question…

What Happens to the Shredded Paper? 

Long story short, we securely transport shredded documents to a recycling plant where it is pulped and recycled into tissue paper. Products including toilet paper and paper towels are derived from this type of recycled paper waste. 

As you know, at Legal Shred, we believe in education and helping our customers understand how our services work. Plus, we love talking about shredding! 

Here is a closer look at what actually happens. 

  • First, a pickup of your paperwork is scheduled 
  • Next, it’s readied for recycling after a process of being baled into large bundles, 
  • Then off to a paper processing plant.

Of course, factors such as the data contained on the paper waste as well as any legal compliance needs for its disposal may change this process up a bit. 

Sometimes the regulations will call for incineration after shredding for example. 

Recycling one ton of office paper can save 17 trees, 7,000 gallons of water, 463 gallons of oil, and 3 cubic yards of landfill space. 

Legal Shred is here to help you with all your shredding and disposal needs. Give us a call today!
