>> Mika Fonoti of Access Information Management Hawaii stands in front of 1,200-pound bales of shredded documents. Every month, the company destroys more than 500,000 pounds of material containing confidential information. Its shredder has 300 cutters to rip up paper, pillboxes, CDs, VHS tapes and boxes. Shredded paper is sold to another company that recycles it into new products like tissue paper. The company has been in Hawaii since 1981 and has locations on Oahu and Maui, plus a truck equipped with a shredder.
