    Do you offer residential shredding service? If yes, what does it cost?

    Yes, we provide on-site, secure, residential shredding services. Quotes are based on number of boxes, or 64 gallon totes (provided by Vermont Shred) to be shred.

    What do you do with the shredded material?

    The shredded material is brought to a secure recycling facility in St. Albans, VT, where it is turned into compact bales and shipped to a pulp mill. Once there, the paper pulp is separated and recycled into new paper products! 

    What kinds of things need to be removed before shredding?

    We prefer you pull binder clips bigger than 1/2", 3 ring binders, hard covered books, x-rays, and reel-to-reel tapes prior to shredding. Paper clips, staples  and thin metal tabs are fine to shred. If you have a question about materials to be shred, please call! 

    Is shredding done on site, and can I witness the destruction?

    Yes, ALL shredding is done on site. There is a viewing monitor on the side of the truck, customers are more than welcome to watch! 

    Do you offer on site hard drive destruction?

    We do! Hard drive destruction can be performed on or off site. All drives will be damaged beyond repair.
