How Our On-site Shredding Service Works

Mobile shredding is convenient and more secure and you will be able to witness your confidential papers being shredded. One of our commercial shredders will come to your home or business location. Your documents are locked in a 96-gallon bin by our staff and taken to our mobile unit and destroyed right away. The bins are lifted and the documents are shredded by an automated system on the truck.  Each bin holds about 300 pounds of paper. We invite you to come to our truck and watch your papers going through the cutting blades at a viewing station on the truck.

Our Document Destruction Options & Costs

One-time Shredding of Business Records

Let’s clean out your office of old files. Let’s reduce the boxes of documents you have in storage. Let’s get ready for your upcoming office move by shredding the paper records you no longer need. For these reasons and many more, our one-time service is perfect for those occasional document destruction events. This service allows you to call us only when you need us.

Cost – The cost for One-time Service is based on a price per 96-gallon bin.  The cost per bin will be based on the number of bins that are going to be shredded.  The more you have to destroy the lower the cost per bin.  We do have a one-bin minimum per service.

Ongoing Shredding for Your Office

Protecting the information of your clients, employees, and business is an ongoing responsibility. If you are one of many companies that deal with a lot of paper, then you are also discarding a lot of documents. The most convenient and secure way to do that is with our scheduled shredding service. We place locked collection containers in your office to dispose of documents in. We will be at your office to destroy those documents on an automatic schedule. We can be there weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly, or we can work with you on a custom schedule. Set up our ongoing service and never worry about shredding again.

Cost – The cost of our Ongoing Service is based on the type of containers, the number of containers, and the frequency of service.  The cost is per container.  There is no rental fee just a charge for each time we service a collection container.  We do require service once per calendar quarter

Hard Drive Destruction

A hard drive never stops storing data on those old computers you are no longer using. Those hard drives are just sitting there with all of your private and confidential information. So, when a computer is decommissioned, the hard drive should be removed and destroyed. Shredding or crushing hard drives is the only way to be sure the date can never be retrieved. We will come to your Connecticut location and shred or crush your hard drives and give you a certificate of destruction listing each destroyed hard drive by serial number.

Cost – We charge a price per hard drive. The more hard drives you have to destroy the lower the cost per hard drive.  Minimums may apply

What Documents You Should Have Shredded

You will find many different recommendations and lists of what documents should be destroyed for security reasons.  It is logical that any paper record that has any private or confidential information should be shredded.  What you may not be aware that more than 50% of every document has some piece of information that privacy laws mandate that they be shredded when they are being disposed of.  The most prudent course of action is to shred every document you are discarding.

Why is Document Shredding Important?

All documents should be shredded before disposing of them to prevent your confidential information from being stolen by identity thieves or your competition.  Private and confidential information is on more documents than people realize, so it is recommended that all documents should be shredded instead of just throwing them away.

We Recycle Destroyed Documents

We are committed to being GREEN to protect the environment and save our natural resources. After FileShred destroys your documents, the shredded paper particles 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 have a positive effect on the environment.
