Drop-off shredding

Drop off your documents or let us pick them up for secure shredding at our location.

Bring your files to us & we’ll shred them in front of you.

Sometimes you only have a few boxes of business records you want to get shredded and you can’t wait. Our drop-off service allows you to bring them to us and have it done right away right in front of you.

Why is drop-off shredding good for you?

If you have less than 90 pounds of paper to shred our drop off service may be a good option for you. (Over 90 pounds our on-site service will be more economical) It gives you the ability to come to our location in Tewksbury MA anytime you want Monday to Friday 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM and you can see your papers being shredded. Our service is convenient because you can bring it to us anytime you can squeeze it into your schedule during our operating hours and we weigh your documents and you only pay for the actual weight of the papers we are going to shred.

What does drop off shredding cost?
$1.00 per pound – $30.00 minimum

With our drop off shredding, you only pay for what is shredded because we charge by the pound. When you arrive at our Tewksbury location, we will weigh your papers right in front of you on a digital scale so you can see the weight. Then you only pay $1.00 per pound.

How drop off shredding works.

Put your documents in boxes, garbage bags or any container you have available. Then bring them you our drop off location, no appointment is necessary. Once you arrive at our drop off location we’ll ask you to sign in our visitors log and we will give you a visitor’s pass. One of our staff will accompany you to the shredding area and weigh your papers and charge you for the actual weight at $1.00 per pound. Then you will be able to sit comfortably in front of the shredder and watch our staff feed your papers into the shredder until they have all been reduced to tiny unreadable particles of paper.

Why our drop off service is better.

Most drop off services don’t shred the documents on the spot. What happens is they weigh your documents, you pay them and then they place your confidential papers in a bin. Your documents will sit in that bin until a 3rd-party company, that you don’t know or have never met, comes to remove the bin and take it to some other location to shred them. The problem is you can’t confirm if your documents have actually been shredded. Worse yet, you don’t know how many different people handle your documents before they are destroyed. Our shred while you wait service eliminates all of these problems.
