Business Shredding Options

Having your corporate files securely destroyed is not a one-size fit all service. FileShred offers one-time and scheduled document shredding services to meet the needs of any business.

One-time Shredding – When you have an occasional need to destroy company papers such as an annual file purge or it’s time to get rid of those old documents that have been sitting around at n the office for years then our one-time service is for you.  It allows you to order on-site document destruction only when you call for it.

Scheduled Shredding– Most businesses need to dispose of documents on a regular basis. For this need, we offer our scheduled service. We provide you with secure containers to deposit and hold your papers in until they are destroyed. Your ongoing shredding schedule can be weekly, bi-weekly, every four weeks and monthly. If you have a need for a different timetable let us know. Remember that a document destruction program is more successful if it is consistent.

Residential On-Site Shredding

If you finally want to get rid of those old personal files that are just taking up to much space at home you can’t just throw them in the trash.  The garbage is still the single largest source of information for identity thieves.  Play it safe and let our residential shredding service come to your home and destroy all your private papers right in front of you.  Our at home service is available Monday through Saturday.

Why Shred?

Shredding is protection. Whether you’re a business, a non-profit, or an individual, there’s truly no one in the Avon, CT area who doesn’t need to protect their private information with our secure onsite document destruction service. Federal and state privacy laws also require that when you are disposing of documents that contain personal or private information they must be destroyed to render them unreadable, and unable to be reconstructed, that means shredding. Not doing so could result in prosecution and fines.

What Should I Shred?

All documents that are not needed anymore should be shredded, here’s why. Half of every document received or created has information on them that privacy laws require they be destroyed before they are disposed of. The time to review each document and the possibility of making a mistake is tremendous so the best and safest course of action is to shred everything. There is also an added benefit with shredding every document it is good for the environment. All of the paper we destroy is recycled and used to make other paper products. Just one ton of shredded paper that is recycled saves 17 trees.

We Service Any Size Shredding Job

Whether you have a home, garage, storage unit, office, or warehouse with one box or thousands of boxes filled with old documents, there’s no amount of confidential records that are too large or too small for us to handle. Our cutting-edge paper shredding trucks can securely destroy up to 6,000 pounds of documents per hour, so we can quickly and efficiently handle any size document destruction project. You can have peace of mind that your information has been properly destroyed. Not to mention that we can destroy in minutes what would take you days to do on your own with a personal or in-office shredder. We bring a lot of document shredding power and convenience to you in Avon.
