Cross-cut paper shredding serves our clients at hospitals and financial institutions, businesses that are legally required protect the identity of the people or companies they serve. Our clients often choose locked bins that they fill in their offices. Our mobile shredding trucks shred this material onsite or we truck the locked bins to one of our secure facilities. They are shredded, mixed with other paper, and shredded again, sometimes even three times until all of the written information becomes impossible to reassemble averting potential security risks
Paper shredded for the U.S. military requires our Hammermill truck. We go to military facilities where our mobile machinery pounds their paper through a steel screen until most of the ink is gone and the paper is almost powdered. Municipal courts also utilize this service.
Retired library books, or mis-printed materials that do not pose information security risks can be processed for recycling at a lower cost energy and handling time and so they are processed at a lower cost to our clients.
