When the late Dave Machika, CEO of Salumatics, initially participated in The Ride to Conquer Cancer, he had not perceived how immense the influence of the event would be. From this, the concept of We-Cycle was born. The team at Salumatics made a unanimous decision that they, as a company, needed to contribute more to local communities, making it part of their corporate vision and that’s why 100% of proceeds of the We-Cycle program go to charity partners.
Salumatics was already providing document shredding services for their enterprise clients, making it affordable for anyone was the next phase. This was accomplished by not only subsidizing the cost of the program, utilizing current relationships and extensive infrastructure, but also providing accessible local drop off points. We-Cycle incorporates charitable efforts in the document shredding process. This is what sets them apart from the entire industry.
In addition to having ties with their remarkable national charity partners, The Ride to Conquer Cancer, Jack.org, Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada, and MS Canada, they also partner with community-based charities and programs across the country. We-Cycle also strives to extend their environmental efforts beyond their doors. This has led them to a partnership with One Tree Planted, wherein a tree is planted for every box sold.
How it Works
The success of the program is driven by its simplicity. A no-frills, easy to understand pricing model was key in the development. We-Cycle realizes that not all jobs are the same and has a service for everyone, with three simple options.
When you bring in your own banker’s box, secured with a lid and handles, Salumatics will securely destroy the contents for $4.95 per box.
If you need a box, you’re able to purchase a box from Salumatics for $8.95 which includes the cost of shredding.
If your office produces a steady volume of paper waste, an office box is perfect. At a price point of $49.95/box scheduled service and it includes the cost of pickup and shredding.
So, if you find yourself having extra paper, document clutter, and wish to make a difference, Salumatics’ We-Cycle Program is the place to go.
