what happens to my documents?
The material will be shredded on site by Pellitteri Waste Systems. All shredded material is taken to Pellitteri's Kipp Street Station. The shredded material is unloaded from the shredding truck and put into large bales. The bales of shredded material are taken to a Wisconsin paper mill where the paper is recycled into paper products such as toilet paper, paper towels, napkins and other tissue products. For every 200 pounds of paper that is shredded we save a tree.
