The Right Cause

It’s more than just secure document destruction. After the paper gets destroyed, it goes towards supporting The Salumatics Foundations’ amazing initiatives while also making our planet greener.

One Box. One Tree.

For every We-Cycle box sold, Salumatics plants 1 tree with the help of One Tree Planted, a charitable organization focused on reforesting the planet.

Our partnership with them ensures that our environmental efforts extend beyond our doors. At We-Cycle, we do more than just secure paper shredding. After destruction, the documents go towards making a difference in the community. We recycle 100% of everything we shred.

Salumatics focuses on creating a greener, more environmentally friendly way to do business.

Office Box Program Questions

How big is the Office Destruction Box?

The Office Destruction Box is approximately 18” L x 18” W x 30” H.

I’m used to lockable consoles. Is the Office Box secure?

Our research indicates that in most cases, our Office Box would be placed in a location that has controlled access & therefore security is provided by the environment.  Lockable collection consoles tend to provide the illusion of security.  In our tests most of the locks were weak & the consoles were easily opened with a swift kick.

Can I get an Office Box to use at home?

Office Boxes are designed for use in larger volume settings that produce a steady supply of wastepaper.  It’s a subscription-based service that requires a commitment to weekly, bi-weekly or monthly pickups. Due to the frequency of pickups and size of the box suitable access points are required.  Please get in touch with our sales department to determine if this product fits your needs.

How often will you come to pick up my Office Box?

The Office Box program requires a commitment to weekly, bi-weekly or monthly pick-ups. We’ll come to pick up the boxes on a schedule that matches the chosen frequency.

Do you shred the Office Box and its contents on site with a mobile shredding truck?

No, onsite mobile shredding equipment is expensive to purchase and maintain. This would increase the cost of destruction, directly reducing the funds that would go to charity.

When will you come to pick up my Office Box?

Pickup times are set to occur on specific weekdays within 4-hour time blocks in the morning or afternoon.

What types of material are acceptable to put into the Office Box?

We only shred general office items that are mostly made of paper. Documents, folders, binders, books, manuals and the like. Staples, paperclips, metal rings and plastic coverings from binders do not need to be removed in advance of shredding.

Do I have to sign a long term contract? Is there any penalty if I decide to cancel my subscription?

You must sign an agreement committing to weekly, bi-weekly or monthly pickups. You can adjust the frequency of your pickups or cancel your subscription at any time as long as you provide 30 days written notice.

Do I get a certificate of destruction when my Office Box gets destroyed?

Your documents are processed in larger batches with enterprise clients. This allows us to provide a low cost, subsidized service benefiting charities. For this reason, we are unable to provide certificates of destruction on an individual box by box basis.

Why are your prices so low for the Office Box when compared to other console based shredding services?

Other shredding services are primarily focused on profits. The Salumatics We-Cycle Program was designed to give back and make an impact in the local community. Our services are subsidized with the intention of providing more funds to local charities and making a bigger difference.
