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 call our main office at 240-428-2933. 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

Our current 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.

How To Find Us

Our facility is tucked away in an industrial park so we can be a little difficult to find. Here are some tips:

If you are using the Waze app, we are finding that it often directs you to the wrong address. It puts you in the same parking lot as the Goodwill store. We are one parking lot over, closer to Parklawn Drive. The Google Maps app should bring you right to our lot, though, so if you have that on your phone, it’s probably best to use.

The picture below is what you’ll see when you pull into our lot. The property manager doesn’t allow us to put up a larger sign. We are in between M&T Marble and Crossfit Hard. We are below Cort Furniture. 

You can park where you see those line of cars parked in the picture below or you can pull right up to our loading dock.  

We share offices with Mid-Atlantic Installations. They are a furniture installer. Their sign is on the front of the overhang (above the text “Our Loading Dock”).  

If you have any trouble locating us please call 240-428-2933 and we’ll help.
