About This Event

  • This service provides on-site shredding trucks, where you can watch your documents being shredded if you wish. This is for residential material only, not for businesses (see list below for business service), thank you.
  • No quantity limit as long as it is residential.
  • Staples, paperclips, spiral bindings, file folders without metal, and cellophane envelope windows are fine to leave in.
  • Please REMOVE all binder clips, three-ring plastic binders and any larger metal pieces.
  • Please do not bring periodicals, magazines, and other paper that does not contain confidential information. Those materials can go in your household recycling bin.
