Document Destruction

DSCN1698[1]Paper document security is just as important as electronic security. Research shows that most identity thieves obtain information through traditional paper-based sources rather than electronic channels.

Every day at Cass Community Social Services, Green Industries’ employees are responsible for destroying sensitive documents for security-conscious customers. Since 2007, the workers have serviced documents for doctors, lawyers, accountants and other professionals, all while providing vital jobs for workers with disabilities.

“We can talk about the number of adults with developmental disabilities that we employ. We can talk about being environmentally friendly… but the most important service we offer — and what our customers are looking for—is security.”
Rev. Faith Fowler, Executive Director

  1. Amazing article with supportive information. I think a lot of people realize just hoe important it is to shredding documents. It’s hard to see why companies wouldn’t invest in a paper shredding service. Thanks for the article.

  2. I lived in Charlevoix, MI and we used Crossroads Industries who do the same amazing work as Cass Green Industries. We found these services efficient and reliable. I just requested information from Cass Green for the new company I work for.

  3. I love learning more about document destruction. It’s cool that companies can shred and recycle. We need to find a service for all of our papers.
