• HELPING THE WORLD “GO GREEN” WITH
    RECYCLING IS WHAT WE DO….

    Whether you are an individual or a large corporation with locations nationwide,
    Paper Recovery can help you SAVE THE ENVIRONMENT through destruction
    and recycling services.

SECURE DOCUMENT SHREDDING

On-Site, Off-Site, or Drop Off Service Available

We have 4 shred trucks in our fleet that can provide your business with fast, economical, and secure (HIPAA compliant) document destruction. You can also bring your documents to our Loves Park location for shredding. The 100% destroyed paper will then be recycled.

Every 1 ton of recycled paper saves about 3.3 cubic yards of landfill space.

CARDBOARD RECYLING

Servicing Local Businesses or Large Corporations

We buy large volumes of cardboard! Paper Recovery can handle all of your cardboard recycling, whether you are a local business or a large corporation with locations nationwide. We have the infrastructure to handle all of your cardboard recycling needs!

Recycling 1 ton of cardboard eliminates 9 cubic yards of landfill space.

SCRAP METAL & ALUMINUM RECYLING

For Businesses or Individuals. We Pay Cash!

Paper Recovery is offering cash for your trash! A trip to our Loves Park Recycling Center on Crest Hills Drive is the fastest, most convenient way to convert aluminum cans and all types of scrap metal into cash.

Metal is in limited supply as a global resource, which makes recycling critical!

PAPER BREAKDOWN SERVICES

We Buy Large Volumes of Unneeded Paper Nationwide.

We have the infrastructure and capacity to purchase extremely large volumes of unneeded paper from paper suppliers or large corporate entities and then break it down for recycling. We keep the brand names of our customers discreet in order to protect their reputation.

Let us purchase your large volume of unneeded paper for recycling!

SECURE HARD DRIVE SHREDDING

For IT Companies, Businesses, and Individual Protection

We all know that computers become obsolete! How do you dispose of your old technology currently? If you are not shredding the hard drive, then your data could be stolen by the next person to get their hands on it. We provide 100% secure hard drive shredding that results in total destruction of the hard drive and data. We then recycle the shredded remnants.

Whether you have 1 hard drive to shred or many...
we will ensure the data is destroyed!

YOUR BUSINESS HAS A CHOICE WHETHER OR NOT TO

BE ENVIRONMENTALLY CONSCIOUS

However, what if there was a financial incentive in the form of a cost savings to your business or even an environmental cost savings? For example, if a business gives us approximately 10,000 pounds of recyclable material to process, Paper Recovery can make it equate to:
