Our Story

We opened our first shredding operation in Denver in 1980. Our first location grew into the largest shredder in Colorado offering mobile and plant based shredding services. We went on to install the largest paper shredder in the United States at the time.

In 2003, we launched shrednations.com, an online national shredding marketplace, to simplify the shredding process and help everyone easily find the right shredding solution for their needs. With experience in the shredding business of over 40 years, Shred Nations is your first choice for secure destruction solutions. We have helped people all over the country find the right shredding service.

With a network of over 6,000 shredding locations across North America, the Shred Nations network has a shredding service for almost every state, city, and town.

We can provide you with everything from national shredding contracts to a local shredding company. From one box at your home to one million boxes in a storage facility. From one office to ten thousand offices. From a one-time purge service to a daily service. From paper to computers. 

Shred Nations is your one-stop shredding finder.

We believe in finding the right solution for your needs. Our shredding solutions also include Ship ‘n’ Shred. Shred Nations and Record Nations, all are trademarks of DataGuard USA.

We continue to find new solutions to customer problems. DataGuard USA saw a need to connect customers with medical waste service providers –and Medical Waste Pros was created. With the increasing need for electronics destruction and recycling services, we launched Electronics Recycling Finder to help customers with their everyday electronics. We continue to service customers first in the areas we know best.
