From the Paper:

"In addition to saving the cost of sending mounds of cardboard to a landfill, which would include hauling and landfill fees, BryanLGH receives fair market price for the cardboard bales. BryanLGH also collects mounds of used paper and shreds the mass to be picked up for recycling by Robert Recycling, another positive environmental practice that cuts costs and brings in funds, as this effort complies with HIPAA (American Health Insurance portability and Accountability Act). (Prenosil, 2006)."
