Residential Shredding Services

Secure Document Destruction for Individuals

More than half of identity theft in the U.S. takes place through non-digital means. Document destruction helps prevent “analog theft” which can involve any physical form of personal information, including paper utility bills, unused checks, old ID cards or even junk mail. The best way to protect yourself and your family is to securely destroy these vulnerable items by shredding them. Residential shredding services are far safer than using a personal home shredder, let alone placing private documents straight in the recycle bin. PROSHRED® provides the same professional document shredding services, with the same quality of protection, for your personal records as we offer businesses. Our mobile residential shredding services are convenient, with easy pick-ups and on-site shredding. Request a free quote today.

Benefits of Residential Document Shredding

Over the years, you accumulate a variety of confidential, sensitive, or personal documents that you cannot just throw in the trash for anyone to see. Professional shredders use cross-cutting to offer superior document destruction than home shredders. If you have tax documents, health insurance bills, and other health records in your home office, you can be at risk of identity theft or having your personal information exposed. Home shredders do not offer the kind of protection you need.

With the growth of work from home, whether permanently or temporarily, it’s also important to meet compliance requirements and avoid breaches of confidential work information. Our convenient shredding process includes easy on-site shredding — with contactless pick-up available — and responsible recycling of shredded waste.

Choose Personal Shredding Services Tailored to Your Needs

Protecting your personal information at home is every bit as important as protecting sensitive information at work. At home, you need the same secure level of document destruction, if not quite as often. PROSHRED® personalizes its shredding service to fit the needs of each residential customer.

We offer our residential clients options for addressing their paper shredding needs, including:

Residential Mobile Shredding

The process of residential mobile shredding is quick and convenient. A shredding truck comes to you, picks up your paper or other materials, shreds them onsite, and provides you with a certificate of destruction. Security cameras let you watch the whole process. Then, we take away the waste and dispose of it responsibly. Contact-less pick-up is available.

Drop-Off Shredding for Residential Customers

If you have a small amount of sensitive documents and prefer to come to us, it may be cost efficient to take advantage of our drop-off services. Bring your materials to the nearest PROSHRED® drop-off location. We will shred them and provide you with a certificate of destruction.

With either on-site or drop-off services, PROSHRED® can professionally destroy papers, binders, hard drives or products to protect your privacy and intellectual property.
