Shredding Services We Offer in McLean, VA

Paper & Document Shredding Services

From bills and bank statements to business contracts and employee files, many documents in your McLean home or business can contain sensitive information like account numbers, social security numbers, credit card numbers, medical information, contact information, and more.

To make sure none of this data falls into the hands of identity thieves, scammers, or competing businesses, it’s essential to securely destroy any sensitive documents. 

Our shredding services can handle up to 13,000 pounds of documents per hour without compromising privacy or security. Plus, we can provide a certificate of disposal as needed to verify proper document destruction.

Confidential Hard Drive & Media Shredding

Hard drives can store immense amounts of confidential data; even if they’re erased or reformatted, some of that data can remain accessible to advanced forensic tools. To ensure your personal or business data is destroyed securely, turn to Patriot Shredding.

Our hard drive shredding services physically destroy the media, shredding the components into small pieces that render the data inaccessible. All the materials are recycled, and a certificate of destruction is issued, noting the serial numbers of all destroyed drives. 

We also destroy all other types of electronic media, including CDs, DVDs, flash drives, tape drives, and more.

E-Waste Removal & Electronics Recycling

Old electronics and office equipment can be challenging to dispose of properly, and many newer devices often contain personal or confidential information stored in onboard memory. At Patriot Shredding, we can take care of both concerns simultaneously with our E-waste disposal services. 

Our team can destroy and recycle most electronics, and our process eliminates any privacy concerns by thoroughly destroying hard drives, flash memory, and electronic media.

We accept most types of electronic waste, including:

  • Keyboards, mice, and computer speakers
  • Telephones and fax machines
  • Copiers and scanners
  • Televisions
  • VCRs
  • CD and DVD players
  • Cell phones and PDAs
  • Desktop and laptop computers
  • Hard drives and storage media
  • Routers, modems, and networking devices
  • And more
