Materials shredded at home can't be recycled because they can't be separated from other materials. However, if you take them to The UPS Store in Auburn for drop-off shredding, all the papers will be combined so they can be recycled. The shredding is priced per pound.
Drop Off Program Details
Shred Nations’ providers can handle any amount of document shredding for your home and business. If you have less than 90 pounds (about 3 copy boxes) worth of paper that needs to be shredded, you can drop it off here. Your files will be stored in a secure, locked shred console inside The UPS Store until a mobile shred truck stops to shred the documents on site.
How drop off shredding services work:
- Gather your documents that need shredding
- Drop them off at the nearest drop off shredding center in Auburn
- Pay by the pound
- Your documents are safely stored in a secure, locked shredding bin
- When the bin is full, a mobile shred truck stops by to shred the contents of the shred container
This drop off location is the best solution for low volume shredding needs. However, if you have over 90 pounds of paper to shred, consider the shredding service options below.
