Place the locking shred bins provided by your shredding provider around your office or home.

Store Papers for Shredding

Over time as documents accumulate, use the bin’s slotted top to place and store papers for shredding.

Schedule Mobile Service

Once the bins are full, schedule a day for a shred truck to come to your location. If you frequently need to shred, regularly-scheduled shredding is available.
