Here we come

That’s right we come to your Hamden Connecticut home or office to shred your documents. We are a mobile shredding service with a fleet of power paper shredding trucks that do all the shredding of your paper records onsite at your location. Our shredding trucks can destroy 6,000 pounds of paper per hour so we can shred your private papers in no time at all. You will also be able to see the whole process as it happens because all of our trucks are equipped with a camera system that allows you to view your files being shredded.

Here is how we shred your documents

All of the paper files are placed into one of bins. Each bin holds 300 pounds of paper. After being loaded the bin is locked to keep your information secure. The locked bin is then rolled to the paper shredding truck sitting just outside your Hamden CT home or office. At the truck the bin is lifted by the shredding system and emptied into the industrial shredder. Your documents are shredded into small particles of paper that are not readable.

What Happens to the shredded paper

Here is the best part all of the paper is recycled and used to make other paper products. The destroyed documents are sent to a plant and goes through a process that removes the ink and separates any staples, paper clips or any other non-paper items and turns the paper back into paper pulp so it can be used to make paper towels, tissues and other paper products. Just one ton of shredded paper saves 17 trees. When your business needs Shredding We have two services for business shredding, Onetime and Schedules Document Destruction Services.
