Ascend Federal CU Saves Trees and Wins Cintas Green Award by Recycling
"Ascend is recycling roughly a ton-and-a-half of paper a week," Cintas Operations Manger Mark Rose said. "That's impressive. In past years, that would have gone straight to a landfill."
Cintas performs secure document shredding services for the credit union. Once the documents are shredded, they are taken to a secure recycling facility and converted into recycled products. According to Rose, Ascend's recycling efforts have saved 1,258 trees, 28,120 gallons of oil and 518,000 gallons of water.
