Paper Shredding Services Fort Walton Beach, FL

Fort Walton Beach, Florida, is a beautiful fishing and resort community nestled in southern Okaloosa County, Florida. Nicknamed the “Emerald Coast,” Fort Walton Beach boasts year-round fishing and beach resorts. According to the 2020 United States Census, just over twenty-thousand people live in Fort Walton Beach; however, Okaloosa county hosts over seven million tourists each and every year. While Fort Walton Beach is considered a “year-round” community, the busiest season of the year is summer, which yields a massive boost for the local economy due to seasonal migration. 

In addition to travel and tourism, Fort Walton Beach’s economy is largely driven by the local military presence. Fort Walton Beach is bordered by two major Air Force bases: Hurlburt Field and Eglin Air Force Base. Hurlburt Feild is home to the Joint Special Operations University, the 1st Special Operations Wing, and the Headquarters of the Air Force Special Operations Command (AFSOC). Eglin AFB is home to the Air Force Materiel Command’s Air Armament Center, the 96th Air Base Wing, The 46th Test Wing, and the Air Combat Command’s 33rd Fighter Wing. Eglin is one of the nation’s largest Air Force Bases by landmass and, thus, home to many joint exercises and bomb testing. In fact, the ‘Massive Ordnance Air Blast’ or ‘Mother of All Bombs’ (MOAB) was first tested at Eglin Air Force Base on March 11, 2003.
