Top Benefits of Document Shredding

Document Shredding in Albany, NY


In today’s identity theft and data breach world, the importance of document shredding in Albany, NY cannot be overemphasized. Identity theft can happen with an individual or a company. Whether the documents involved are credit card statements or completed contracts, having this information openly displayed, or in an unlocked file, can lead to disaster. PROSHRED® Albany is a secure document shredding company that offers shredding services designed to fit the convenience of our customers.

Gemalto, a world leader in digital security, reports that the number of identity thefts increased by 255% in the first 6 months of 2017. They also report that the amount of records compromised increased 4114%. As individuals become more proficient in stealing records this number can only be expected to increase.

To avoid encountering this kind of catastrophe, it is important to use diligence in disposing of records that are no longer of use. Using the latest in equipment, we are proud to be able to offer a one time or regular service document shredding schedule that fits your needs.

At PROSHRED® Albany, we offer:

One Time Purge 

On-going Service

Commercial Shredding

Hard Drive Shredding

Community Shredding Events

A one-time purge means that we will come to your location and shred whatever amount of documents you want to destroy. This may be an entire storage room or just a few boxes. This can be for a resident or for a business. Our on-site shredding truck makes it a simple way to get rid of unwanted documents.

An on-going service means just that. We will furnish you with a container, complete with lock, in which to safely store your documents prior to an agreed pickup time. This can be monthly or weekly and avoids the messiness of trying to use an in-house shredder.

Commercial shredding will assure you that your unwanted documents are destroyed and will never see the light of day again. This brings not only peace of mind but the assurance that no matter what means a thief may use, they will never gain access to your private information.

In the rapid advancement of modern technology, computers are constantly being up-graded, especially hard drives. Simply hitting the ‘erase’ on a hard drive does not destroy the confidential and sensitive information it contains. At PROSHRED® Albany we have hard drive destruction equipment to destroy hard drives and will present a certificate showing the date and time the hard drive, or drives, was picked up.

Community shredding events are a service we offer to the local Albany community, which allows large numbers of community members to destroy all of their unwanted documents. This eliminates the often-misconstrued idea that putting them in the dumpster or re-cycle bin takes care of the problem. It has been shown that many thieves deliberately search for credit card receipts, cancelled checks and other such information in these locations. 

We provide the latest in modern shredding equipment, experienced operators and reasonable prices. Serving Albany and the surrounding community, we have no hidden fees and are able to provide service quickly and efficiently.


PROSHRED® Albany provides document shredding to the Albany business community. Review our full list of services or contact us (518) 512-0321 to see how we can keep you secure today.
