About American Shredding

American Shredding offers paper shredding services, electronic data destruction, and product destruction services. Primarily working with businesses, military bases, and municipalities, American Shredding also welcomes individuals that drop off their shredding in most locations. We can consider invitations to co-create community shredding events in partnership with our clients as well as with schools, food banks, and other non-profit organizations.

In 2005, long-standing members of the paper shredding and recycling industry founded American Shredding. Steve Sutta is the President of American Shredding, a member of the national recycling group Green Planet 21. In 1975, Sutta founded Engineered Waste Control (EWC) with Michael Swernoff and Fritz Sparks to recycle paper in the Bay Area. They later sold EWC to Weyerhaeuser. The Sutta Company began destroying confidential information in 1982 for IBM. Assured Shredding followed and was later sold.

Avi Hesterman begins as the CEO of American Shredding early in 2019. Since 1994, Dave Williams has served as the environmental economist and company attorney. Cindy Conley manages our all or our current sales and bookings. Mike McQuillen improves mechanical processes nationwide. Michael Swernoff is the General Manager of the Green Planet 21 facility in Oakland, CA. Tim Erlandson, Steve Spence, James Bell and Kelvin Li made contributed to our work with paper and recycling markets. Together, these individuals have more than 270 years of experience accumulated in the information destruction and recycling industries.
