How Does Mobile Shredding Work in Fairfield CT

You can have your confidential paper records destroyed at your Fairfield CT residence or office with one of our commercial document destruction trucks.  We pull up to your location and 6,000 pounds of paper shredding power per hour tears through your files and turns them into small unreadable particles of paper.  Just show our helpful staff what documents you want shredded.  They will place those papers into our 96-gallon security bins.  The bins are locked and then moved to our mobile unit.  The shredding system on the truck does the rest by lifting the bin into a tunnel that pulls out from the side of the truck and leads to the shredder.  The bin is emptied and all your papers are destroyed.  The process repeats until all your documents are shredded.  You can also watch the whole process on a TV screen mounted on the side of the truck.
