Paper Shredding (Commercial & Residential)
Shred Right has three, AAA-NAID Certified, paper shredding options to meet all your secure destruction needs:
1. We can shred at your location. The most advanced shredding, on the go.
Our trucks come to you. Shred Right offers the most advanced mobile on-site shredding for documents and data. Most mobile shredders are designed around the destruction of paper. Shred Right’s high-tech mobile shredding equipment is specifically designed for BOTH the destruction of paper and non-paper material. Our trucks are built for high output and maximum efficiency, saving both time and money.
Our mobile on-site shredder can process:
- Paper documents
- IT/media (see list)
2. Shred at our location in Shred Right’s Off-Site Shredding Vault™- think of it as the Fort Knox for paper.
No material escapes our unique crosscut, two-way shredding system. Shred Right’s fully enclosed and continuously monitored off-site Shredding Vault™ features fully integrated technology to electronically guard the site. No one gets into the vault without an escort. Our system is secured with restricted keyed access points, closed circuit cameras to record activity at all time, and property wide motion detectors with audible alarm. In fact, our off-site Shredding Vault™ was featured in Secure Destruction Business Magazine.
This high capacity system processes up to 35,000 lbs of material per hour, reducing the use of excess energy. Once the material is shredded, we follow our GreenSmart® final disposal guidelines, a program designed to keep the material out of area landfills. Paper is recycled, tapes are incinerated for waste-to-energy and hard drives are recycled at a licensed e-waste facility.
As the largest, oldest, locally owned secure destruction facility in the upper midwest, we are proud of the honors and accolades our facility has received, but we’re most proud of the long-standing track record with clients who depend on us to destroy their material in our Shredding Vault™.
