Yes. We recycle 100% of the paper we shred. Did you know every ton of recycled paper can save 17 trees, 380 gallons of oil, three cubic yards of landfill space, more than 4,000 kilowatts of energy, and 7,000 gallons of water?

All material is shredded at your location, and we never touch your confidential documents. Your documents are deposited directly into the shredder automatically. We do not sift through your material or hand feed the shredder. If you only have a small amount of material to shred please feel free to bring your documents to one of our shred events where you can witness their destruction.

Absolutely not. Strip shredding is a very inefficient method of shredding documents. Material that is strip shredded can easily be reconstructed. Our equipment uses a pierce and tear method which renders your documents into very small, unreadable pieces.

Yes. Once your documents have been destroyed, we issue you a Certificate of Destruction and the output is then recycled.

You can watch the entire procedure including our exclusive “camera view” of the actual shredding process.

No. Our shredding equipment feeds your documents directly into the shredder.

We provide a variety of lockable security containers to meet your needs. We offer a 95-gallon, 64-gallon, and a 32-gallon Executive Console.

We service many clients who use us just once as well as companies who need to shred regularly.

Depending on your location, shredding can be scheduled as soon as the next day.

All businesses have occasion to discard confidential data. Customer lists, price lists, sales statistics, drafts of bids and correspondence, and even memos contain information about business activity, which would interest any competitor. Every business is also entrusted with information that must be kept private. Employees and customers have the legal right to have this data protected.

With the exception of a few specific records that should be saved permanently, most documents and records need to be saved for a maximum of seven years.

We will shred any color or type of paper, including file folders, paper clips, staples, and rubber bands.

For security reasons. Recycling services are not designed to provide security. Generally, recycling services use open collection containers, which are unsecured. Generally, the employees of recycling service companies are not security-screened personnel. Paper is taken to the warehouses, which are accessible to other people, and the paper is then sorted for grade. The courts have ruled that once you place your material into the trashcan, recycling receptacle, or dumpster, you lose all privacy rights to that information, no matter how sensitive or proprietary it is. The laws on public domain protect the people taking the information – NOT YOU! You may be held liable for negligence if the discarded material does harm to someone.
