Scheduled Paper Shredding

Shred Connect does not have a contract for scheduled paper shredding service. If you wish to cancel, we ask for a 30-day notice.

Shred Connect charges by the service. For example, if you require multiple visits within a month, then the cost would be higher than having service once a month.

You are provided with an invoice each month with net 30 term. You will never find extra charges on your invoice (i.e., fuel and recycle fees) unless extra material was agreed upon by both parties.

You can click this link to request earlier service. If this situation occurs more than a few times, we will recommend a larger container for less-frequent service.

We ask that you keep extra material in boxes. These boxes will be picked up at your next scheduled service. We charge by the box at a discount rate.

The container is included with service. We maintain ownership of the container. If you no longer need or want service, we collect the container(s) and key(s). The only time you would be charged for the container cost is if it gets damaged.

Yes. We ask that you just deposit paper. We have had to remove trash, gum, paper plates, personal tissue products, magazines, books, Pendaflex®. The first time there is material other than paper in the shred container, we will send an email to the contact on file. Further occurrences may result in service cancellation.

The service will cost an additional $15.00/service.

If you need to change the terms of service agreed upon at the start, it is not a problem. We may have to adjust your schedule due to routing.

Shred It for Less™

Check out the explainer video that depicts a common scenario for dropping off your material for shredding. This video will answer most of your questions.

We charge by a standard-size, file storage box. The cost is $10.00/box. If your material is not in this size box, it’s okay because the collection agent can provide you with a visual estimate.

Each location has varying hours of operation; some are open seven days a week. Check the location card for details.

Yes. We have put together a list of items that cannot be shredded.

Yes. Your material is deposited into a secure container. We do not take or shred boxes.

We understand the importance of security and that is why we have partnered with locations that understand security. This service model is common and is also offered at Staples, Office Depot, FedEx Kinkos and UPS stores. If you are not comfortable with leaving your material, then we recommend you schedule a mobile shredding appointment.

It depends on location. This information is available via pop-up on the location card.

You can leave your name and email to receive a Certificate of Destruction, issued once your material is shredded.

Product Destruction

It depends on the project—it could be unit, box, or weight. It is likely that we will want to meet with you and see the products. In lieu of meeting in person, we require pictures.

If the material requires extraction of flammable material such as batteries and magnets will include a special-handling fee. This type of work will extend the 48-hour destruction agreement.

Payment is due at the time of service unless otherwise arranged.

Shred Connect destroys the products it receives for destruction within 48 hours.

You can elect to receive video evidence as your product is being shredded.

We cannot destroy products that have liquid, flammable or hazardous material.

Shred Connect will arrange and pay for shipping unless otherwise negotiated.

We have destroyed promotional items, clothing, clothing accessories, medical supplies, police and fire uniforms and gear, FDA-regulated products, trading cards, and pet supplies. Porsche

Our facility has live-feed, 24-hour surveillance and records. In addition, motion sensors alert of any activity around our facility.
