What Is Purge Shredding?

Cross Cut Shredding

Purge shredding is the process of shredding a large volume of documents all at once. This type of service differs from recurring shredding services because it’s a one-time event, rather than an ongoing service option.

Both businesses and residences can benefit from purge shredding services whenever they have a large volume of documents to shred all at once.

When Would I Use Purge Shredding Services?

    • You have a large volume of documents that all reach their retention date at the same time.
    • You don’t want or need ongoing shredding services.
    • You are cleaning out your home or storage closet and come across boxes of old records you no longer need.

Many organizations plan for a shredding purge annually, but you can request a one-time shredding purge anytime you have a large number of documents that need to be shredded.

Purge Shredding ServicesHow Is Purge Shredding Preformed?

Purge shredding jobs are performed just like ongoing shredding services. You can choose when and where the work is done.

Mobile Shredding

Have a shred truck visit your location and perform the shredding at your doorstep with mobile shredding services. There is no weight limit, and you can watch the shredding through a camera inside the truck. The national average is $130 – $150 for a project up to 120 lbs. This does vary based on project size, location, and other factors. Please call or fill out the form on this page for more accurate information.

Off-Site Shredding

Have your files picked up and transported to a secure shredding facility for a more economical offsite shredding option. There is no weight limit for offsite shedding either, but since the truck doesn’t shred the documents while you watch, it is less expensive than mobile shredding. You will receive a certificate of destruction once the shredding is complete to ensure total security.
