Local answer to shredding problem.

South Wales Shredding is very excited to be a part of the Go Green campaign and to play its part in leading the green revolution here in Wales.

As a Welsh business based in Taffs Well, Cardiff, it appreciates that it is now more important than ever for businesses to understand the benefits of reducing carbon emissions and to buy local whenever possible.

Sheryl Capaldi and South Wales Phillip and David When it started in business in 2007 as the first Welsh mobile data destruction company, it bought the most environmentally-friendly truck then on the road, conforming to Euro 5 emissions targets two-and-a-half years ahead of time.

Nonetheless, according to Defra, for every mile travelled in an 18-tonne rigged vehicle 0.94 kg of CO2 is emitted.

By using local companies those CO2 emissions can be greatly reduced.

We have all heard the term 'reduce, reuse, recycle', and South Wales Shredding helps businesses to achieve their recycling targets as 100% of paper shredded at the customers' premises is recycled and used to make kitchen and toilet rolls.

Catherine Eley of with drivers Norwell It's going to be a long time, if ever, until we see the paperless office. Until then, let's all do our bit to reduce, reuse, recycle.

By doing this and using local businesses wherever and whenever possible, we can all contribute to a greener Wales.
