You can also bring it to us!

Do you have items you need to get rid of now or don't have enough to justify paying for a pick-up? You can drop them off to our facility at any time between 8:30 am and 4:30 pm Monday through Friday. For a nominal fee, we will add your documents to our destruction line-up and have you on your way.

Do I need to schedule my drop-off?

For anything less than 20 boxes, no! We take unscheduled drop-off customers regularly and we'll ensure you don't have to wait. Most customers are in-and-out in 10 minutes or less. If you have more than 20 boxes, please call ahead to ensure we'll be able to handle it promptly.

What if I don't have boxes to transport it?

We'll accept your confidential documents in anything from trash bags to clothes hampers! And anything you want back, you will receive back at the time of drop-off.

What can be dropped off?

We'll accept any dry, non-moldy paper products at the time of drop off. Hard drives, CDs, DVDs, and VHS tapes are accepted with an additional fee.

Do I need to prep anything for drop-off?

Our shredder will easily shred through paperclips, staples, and small binder clips, so you don't need to do any work here to prepare your documents! However, we don't accept hazardous materials of any kind including wet or moldy paper. If you have a question about your potential drop-off, give us a call anytime!

Can I watch my items being destroyed?

Yes. However, we don't allow any non-staff in the secure destruction area so we will require you to watch from a monitor in the office. We have four cameras that cover the destruction process and you'll be able to watch from beginning to end.

We do, however, charge a $15 fee for this and require that it be scheduled in advance. We charge this fee and require advanced scheduling because we operate on a first in, first out system and documents from a witness shredding will be "cutting" other documents in the line.
