Is There a Limit to the Amount of Documents I Can Have Shredded at a Drop-Off Location?

Due to the location’s limited capacity to securely store your documents before they are shredded, we recommend you limit your drop-off shredding to between one and three banker’s boxes. Some locations will have a minimum charge to shred your documents, so if you don’t have at least one trash bag or one banker’s box full of documents, you might end up spending a little more to get your documents shredded.

If you have more than three boxes, we have solutions depending on your needs:

  • Mobile Shredding Services—This is one of the most convenient ways to have your shredding done since a truck will come to your address and shred up to 300 pounds of documents while you watch. We provide a certificate of destruction for your records as well.
  • Off-Site Shredding Services—Over 300 pounds (11 banker’s boxes) of shredding is best done using our off-site shredding service. For your records, you will receive a certificate of destruction.

These options allow you to avoid the hassle of packing up all those boxes to drop them off.
