How Much is Mobile Shredding

When estimating the cost of mobile shredding, there are a few variables that you should take into account.  First, you need to determine how much paper you have to be shredded. Shredding pricing is typically $1 per pound of paper needing to be shredded. The guide below can help you to approximate how many pounds of paper you have.

  • A ream of paper (2 inch stack of 8-1/2” x 11” paper  – about 500 pieces) weighs about 5 lbs
  • Standard letter-size file storage box, measures 10” x 12” x 15”, weighs approximately 25 – 30 lbs
  • Standard Xerox letter size box which measures 10” x 12” x 18”, weighs approximately 30 – 35 lbs
  • Long letter size file storage box, measures 10’ x 12’ x 24”, weighs approximately 45 – 50 pounds
  • Legal-size file storage box, measures 10” x 14” x 24”, weighs approximately 55 – 60 lbs
  • 13 gallon white trash bag averages about 20 – 25 lbs
  • 33 gallon black garbage bag averages about 35- 50 lbs

Mobile shredding services are typically ideal for bigger shredding jobs, but it is actually cheaper than taking them into a facility if you have more than a couple of boxes.  For any amount of paperwork up to three hundred pounds (approximately 10 boxes), you are looking at right around $100 for your home.
