Arsenal spring shred totals more than these elephants

The grand total we recycled at this year’s shred events was 21,310 pounds, more than 10.5 tons. That’s the equivalent of three adult female African bush elephants and seven baby elephants!

Earlier this month, we hosted shred events at our Webster Groves, Florissant, Arnold and Swansea branches where you could have your sensitive paper documents securely shredded on-site at no cost through our partner American Document Destruction.

Here are the shred event results by individual branch:

  • Webster Groves: 7,880 pounds
  • Florissant: 6,580 pounds
  • Arnold: 4,740 pounds
  • Swansea: 2,110 pounds

Thanks again for coming out and making these events such a success. Also, thanks to all of the Arsenal employees who volunteered their time to help.

If you missed your chance to recycle your documents this spring, don’t worry. Our fall 2018 shred events will take place Saturday, September 15, at the Arnold and Florissant branches and Saturday, September 29, at the Webster Groves branch.

Also, stay tuned for information regarding our summer eRecycling events.
