Did you know that October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month? According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, breast cancer is the second most common type of cancer in women. During the month of October, awareness is raised about the importance of early detection and medical research.


When an employee's wife from Midwest Fiber's Sister Company, COPS Paper Shredding, was diagnosed with the disease in 2011, COPS felt compelled to lend their genuine support in an effort to contribute and hopefully create a meaningful impact. As a result, Shred for the Cure initiative for Susan G. Komen began.


Shred trucks were marked with pink ribbons, paper was collected in pink bins, and oh yes... there was even pink paper!!

Whether you're cleaning out old records at home, or purging records for your business, you can participate in Shred for the Cure!




By scheduling your shredding projects in October, you will help COPS boost their contribution total, which allows Susan G. Komen to fund cutting-edge research and local community health grants, providing help to area women who are battling cancer.


Over the past two years, with the help of people like you, COPS donated over $10,000.00 through their unique Shred for the Cure month-long event. As we continue this important effort, we invite you to be a part of it!!

It is important to reduce our reliance on foreign oil. Recycling helps us do that by saving energy.
