Shred Medic joins the Sarasota Green Business Partnership

We’re proud to announce our latest Green Business partner:  Shred Medic

About Shred Medic

Shred Medic is an independently owned service company serving the Gulf Coast and Central Region of Florida. They provide a one-stop service to coordinate document shredding and destruction, records storage and scanning, and bio-medical waste removal needs. Shred Medic is able to handle any or all of these needs, but small enough that you can communicate directly with people who care.  The ownership/management team has over 45 combined years of medical device sales including spinal implants, orthopedic implants, and orthobiologics. In addition, they possess management experience that enhances their ability to meet your needs and expectations.

Shred Medic utilizes DHS Worldwide Total Recall software which provides our customers with the latest state-of-the-art technology. This program offers you secure online access t reports, notifications, scheduling options, calendar, invoices, certificate of destruction, manifest and much more.  If you want the ease of one-stop service, Shred Medic is the right choice for your company’s disposal needs.

Green initiatives

As a green business partner, Shred Medic is making a positive impact on the gulf coast of Florida. Shred Medic prides itself on the fact that every service they provide is rooted in sustainability. Their paper, medical waste, e-recycled items, x-rays, cardboard & plastic is recycled for a sustainable solution for the companies they service. While the company is built around recycling and responsible management of medical waste, Shred Medic operates as a green company. The staff regularly discusses environmental efforts and promotes green successes. As an office, they recycle all plastic, paper, and e-waste, and strive to have a nearly zero-landfill footprint.  Shred Medic reduces energy by using automatically controlled thermostats, turning of lights in unused areas,  and are working towards a more energy efficient warehouse.
