Containers

In order to facilitate your shredding with ease, we have a variety of secured containers for your department.  From large, two wheel carts, to under desk size containers or even coordinated furniture pieces.  All containers are provided free of charge with Regularly Scheduled Monthly Pickups or if your service needs are less frequent containers are available for monthly rental or purchase.

Not only do we shred paper, but we can also shred various data containing media like CDs, DVDs, VHS Tapes and X-rays.  Schedule this service using the On-Demand Shredding Pickup Order Request.  If you are in need of hard drive destruction, please contact Surplus Property who can facilitate the destruction of your hard drive(s).
