What Happens During Shredding

Uniformed security professionals remove your secure documents to a locked shredding truck, guarding it until it arrives at a secure shredding facility in Washington DC.  At the plant, the containers are weighed for record keeping. Only authorized personnel are allowed to come into contact with your documents at the plant, and they never see the contents of your files.


Off-site shredding costs, on average, $110-$130 for a project between 1-10 boxes but can vary based on location, size, and other factors.
