How On-site Shredding Works At Your Location

You will be able to watch our mobile shredder destroy all of your documents at your Greenwich CT location. We have a fleet of trucks that have been outfitted with industrial shredders that destroy 6,000 pounds of paper per hour. That means we can complete any size document destruction project quickly and efficiently. You’ll be able to watch the cross-cutting blades in action on a viewing screen on the truck.  Our staff will do all the work.  All you have to do is show our technicians what documents you want shredded and they will place them in our 96-gallon bins.  The bin will be locked and taken to our truck just outside your Greenwich CT location and the contents will be immediately destroyed.  The process will be repeated until all the papers you want shredded have been destroyed.

The Top Options To Destroy Documents in Greenwich CT

One-time Shredding for All Types of Businesses

For companies and organizations in Greenwich CT that shred business records periodically our one-time service is available to them. It is the on-demand option that allows you to call to destroy files and documents on an as-needed basis. Call us for a single records purge or occasionally when it’s time to get rid of outdated documents. This service is a great way to clean out office clutter, reduce documents in storage, or prepare for a move.

Cost- You will be charged a rate per bin.  Our bins are 95-gallon containers that hold 300 pounds of paper.  The price for each bin is based on how much you have to shred.  The more bins you need the lower the cost per bin.  We have a one-bin minimum.

Scheduled Shredding for Any Office

For those Greenwich CT offices that deal with more paper, you are also throwing away documents more frequently. You have a responsibility to your clients to protect their information along with being compliant with federal and state privacy regulations. The best way to do that is with an ongoing shredding program in your office. We supply locked collection containers to dispose of all documents in. We then come to your Greenwich CT office to destroy the papers on a recurring schedule. We will be to you automatically, so you don’t have to worry about it any longer. We offer weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, every other month, or quarterly schedules.

Cost- With our scheduled service we place our collection containers in your office.  Then we come on a regular basis to shred the documents.  The cost is a rate per collection container.  The rate is calculated on the number of containers and frequency of service.

Residential Paper Shredding – We Come To Your Home

Never throw away documents at home in the regular trash or recycle bin. Identity thieves know people make that mistake all the time. Instead, give FileShred a call and we will come to your Greenwich CT home and shred all the personal papers you want to get rid of, so you don’t have to worry about your private information getting into the wrong hands. Our residential shredding service is available every day but Sunday.

Cost- The cost for residential shredding is similar to our one-time file purges.  The cost is a rate per bin times the number of bins shredded.  The bin is a 96-gallon container that holds 300 pounds of documents.  We have a one-bin minimum for residential customers.

Shredding Events

If you are looking to host a shredding event in Greenwich CT we can help. It is a great way to promote your business, say thank you to clients, have a fundraiser for an organization, or bring awareness to identity theft in your community. We will help you plan, promote, and choose a great location for your shredding event. To get more information and pricing give us a call.

Cost-  The cost for shredding events is an hourly charge.  The hourly rate is based on the number of shredding trucks and staff hired.  Events run from two hours to as many as eight hours.  There is a minimum number of hours required.

Hard Drive Destruction Service

You don’t have to be a computer expert to know that a hard drive stores a lot of information. What you may not know is that a hard drive never stops storing data even when you replace a computer. That hard drive is just sitting there with all of your private and confidential information. So, when a computer is no longer going to be used the hard drive should be removed and physically destroyed. Shredding or crushing hard drives is the only way to be sure the date can never be accessed again. We will come to your Greenwich CT location and shred or crush your hard drives and give you a certificate of destruction listing each destroyed hard drive by serial number.

Cost-  To destroy hard drives we charge a rate per hard drive.  Minimums apply when you are only destroying hard drives.  No minimums apply if hard drives are destroyed with the shredding of documents.

What Documents Should Be Shredded

You will find many different opinions and lists of what documents should be shredded.  It stands to reason that any piece of paper that has any private or confidential information should be shredded.  What you may not know is more than half of every document has some piece of information that privacy laws require they be shredded when they are being disposed of.  The best and safest course of action is to shred every document you are discarding.

We Recycle Your Destroyed Documents

We are committed to protecting the environment and conserving our natural resources. After FileShred destroys your paper records at your Greenwich CT location, the shredded documents are recycled.  That means 100% of the paper we shred is recycled and used to make other paper products.  It has never been easier for you to be eco-friendly.

What Can Be Shred

In addition to all forms of standard copier and printer paper, we can shred all types of paper-based common office materials.  These items include file folders, expandable folders, hanging folders, envelopes, notepads, spiral notebooks, colored paper, sticky notes, card stock, and manila interoffice folders to name a few.  There are other items we can shred but they are not shredded with paper, such as, computer tapes, dvd’s, cd’s, and vhs tapes.

What Can’t Be Shred

There is a limit to what can be shredded in our paper destruction trucks. For example plastics, heavy metals, glass, styrofoam, trash, food waste, cardboard boxes, and any type of medical waste!

Although our powerful industrial shredders can typically shred just about anything, many of the items listed above can cause damage to machinery, cause fires, prevent a load of shredded paper materials from being recycled, and, most importantly, can be dangerous to our staff.
