How Drop Off Shredding Works

Drop off shredding services are quite simple. Once you have gathered all your papers for shredding, search to find the closest drop off shredding location near you and head in that direction. These locations are all drop-in and do not require an appointment made beforehand.

Finding a drop off shredding location is easier than ever with the Shred Nations directory. We are partnered with multiple locations in just about every city that provides drop off shredding.

Once you find your nearest drop off location, the professional handler will weigh the papers and charge you the appropriate amount. They are then kept in secure, locked bins until they are ready to be shredded. Just like that, your papers are destroyed and kept out of identity theft hands.

Drop Off Shredding Cost

As mentioned earlier, with drop off shredding, you only pay for what you shred. When you arrive at the location, your papers are weighed which will reflect the cost of your shredding.

On average, drop off shredding service providers will charge about $1 per pound of papers. One pound of papers equates to about 100 sheets. If you need assistance calculating your shredding project, check out our paper shredding conversion tool.

A banker’s box is a common method of storage for many homes and businesses. One banker’s box is equivalent to about 30 pounds of paper. If you have more than this amount, consider the mobile shredding or off-site shredding service instead.
