Perfect for Residential Shredding

Drop-off shredding is a convenient and secure solution for residential customers who have a large volume of documents to shred. By bringing your documents to a professional drop-off shredding facility, you can be sure that they will be destroyed in a secure and confidential manner. Drop-off shredding is also an eco-friendly solution, as the shredded paper can be recycled into new paper products.

In addition, drop-off shredding is often more cost-effective than shredding services that come to your home, as you will not have to pay for fuel or labor costs. As a result, drop-off shredding is a great option for those who want to securely destroy their documents in an environmentally-friendly way.

Drop-Off Shredding VS. Mobile Shredding

When it comes to document shredding, there are two primary options: drop-off shredding and mobile shredding. Both methods have their advantages and disadvantages, so it's important to choose the option that best meets your needs. Drop-off shredding is typically more affordable and provides a higher level of security, as documents are shredded on-site under the watchful eye of security cameras.

However, this method can be inconvenient, as you must transport your documents to the shredding facility. On the other hand, mobile shredding is more expensive but offers greater convenience, as a shredding truck comes to your location. This option is ideal for large jobs or businesses that don't have the storage space to keep documents until they can be taken to a drop-off facility. Ultimately, the best option for you will depend on your budget and your specific needs. 

What Type of Documents Should You Shred?

We often have clients ask which documents they can keep, which can be thrown away, and which should be shredded. While any document containing sensitive or confidential information should be shredded, we’ve created a list of examples, including: 

  • Bank Statements 
  • Job Applications 
  • Confidential Correspondence 
  • Profit/Loss Statements 
  • Credit/Debit Card Statements 
  • Brokerage Reports 
  • Legal Documents 
  • Canceled Checks 

And more!
