Please review our new COVID-19 Drop Off Policy and our How To Find Us section below.

COVID-19 Drop-off Process

When you arrive at our facility please drive up to the shredding truck. Our staff, equipped with proper PPE, will meet you at your car.

We’ll unload your documents from your car or trunk, dump the documents from your box/bag into our secure bin, wheel the bin to a shredding truck, and shred your paper right then and there. You are able to witness the shredding of your documents.

Please note we will return your empty box(es) and bag(s) to you. 

You can pay with cash, credit card, or check. 

All shredded paper is securely recycled and turned into products like paper plates, paper towels, tissues, and toilet paper. 

Drop-Off Shredding Pricing

Pricing is $10 per box or bag of paper and $10 per hard drive (no witness option available for hard drives).

Please note a “box” is equal to a copy paper box (approximately 10″x 12″x 15″) and a “bag” is equal to a kitchen garbage bag. Larger boxes and bags will be prorated accordingly. Examples of larger boxes are “double” size file boxes, moving boxes, plastic tubs, etc. Examples of larger bags are black industrial garbage bags and lawn bags.

We accept cash, check, and credit cards.
