Shredding sensitive documents helps thwart ID thieves and benefits the environment by saving trees and reducing landfills. At Shred Day over the past 10 years, San Antonio residents securely shredded 335 tons of paper. One ton of recycled paper saves 17 trees, 7,000 gallons of water, 3 cubic yards of landfill space and enough energy to heat an average home for 6 months, according to the US Environmental Protection Agency.
