“Through our efforts of environmental stewardship, we have also been able to serve our global community.” – Christopher Fisher, Account Manager, Proshred D.C.

21st Century Security, dba PROSHRED® Washington D.C., continues to make strides toward a brighter future for the D.C. area with the company’s ongoing efforts to recycle shredded material and reduce the community’s environmental impact. This fact is supported by the recent announcement of incredible environmental savings data provided by the owner and general manager Martin Fisher.

Released just in time for Earth Day, the latest Environmental Savings Report reflects a staggering 6,417,503 pounds of paper refuse being recycled at a trusted local recycling facility, preventing about 320,875 cubic yards of landfill space from being needlessly used.

These impressive numbers equate to saving roughly 54,549 trees from being cut down, as well as a whopping 1,219,326 gallons of oil, 15,402,007 kilowatt-hours of energy, and 22,461,260 gallons of water from being used.

“Over the last decade-plus of providing the DMV with information security services we have developed a great sense of pride in serving our local community,” said Christopher Fisher, Account Manager Proshred DC. “Through our efforts of environmental stewardship, we have also been able to serve our global community. As we have grown as a company, so too has our positive environmental impact.
