Destroying unwanted bank statements, tax records, medical bills, and other confidential documents with a paper shredder is time consuming and stressful. A drop-off shredding service offers a convenient and worry-free document destruction solution. You drop off your documents in bags or boxes to your shredding provider. Unlike with an office shredder, you do not have to remove staples, paperclips, or rubber bands from your files. Your drop-off shredding provider’s shredding technology even destroys non-paper items.


Identity theft and business fraud rates keep climbing. As a result, secure paper shredding has never been more important. A drop-off shredding service that offers NAID AAA Certified document destruction offers dependability and peace of mind. Whether you are a business or homeowner, your drop-off shredding provider destroys your information according to the highest security and ethical standards.

Privacy Protection

Identity thieves dig through dumpsters and curbside trash cans and recycling bins. Drop-off shredding limits the risk of criminals accessing your confidential information. State-of-the-art destruction equipment is used to shred your documents. The entire shredding process is recorded to video and stored for 90 days.


Drop-off shredding offers a cost-effective solution for destroying unwanted paper records. Your shredding provider charges by the cubic foot and you can pay by cash, check, or credit card at the time of service.


Paper waste harms the environment. As paper decomposes in the ground, it produces methane, a powerful greenhouse gas. A drop-off shredding service keeps your paper waste out of landfills. After your drop-off shredding provider destroys your documents, they recycle the shredded material.

Paper Destruction and More

The right drop-off shredding provider can destroy non-paper items. CDs, DVDs, computer back-up tapes and other magnetic media are destroyed with state-of-the-art shredding technology. Non-paper items are shredded into small pieces, rendering all sensitive data irrecoverable.
