And you don’t need to transport heavy boxes of papers to some location like an office supply store to have them shredded. A1 Datashred will come to you and do all the work. We have a fleet of industrial paper shredding trucks that make quick work of any shredding project you have whether it is a single box or thousands. Our truck will arrive at your Cambridge location and wheel one of our security bins into your office or the front door of your home. Our driver will place the documents you want destroyed into the bin and will lock it securely. The bin is then rolled to the truck to be lifted inside by automated systems to be destroyed by our industrial shredder. You can walk to the paper shredding truck with our driver and actually see your documents being destroyed from a monitor on the side of the truck.


A1 Datashred’s document destruction options are tailored to your needs. You may need to destroy files either only occasionally or on a regular schedule. Our One-Time Service offers shredding only when you have the need, perhaps only once or just a couple of times a year. For clients with a more frequent need, we provide Scheduled Service on a regular schedule such as weekly, bi-weekly, monthly or quarterly. We supply you with secure locking containers to store your documents in until we come as scheduled to destroy the papers.

Residential Shredding

Not only businesses need to securely destroy files. Individuals in Cambridge (especially those who have bank statements and other important papers mailed to them or who work at home), also need to protect themselves against identity theft. One of the ways these criminals get your information is off the documents you have tossed into the trash. Let A1 Datashred come to your home to shred and properly dispose of your sensitive papers.

We are ready, able and eager to assist you. Call A1 Datashred today.

Regularly Scheduled Shredding

Our scheduled service is designed to be convenient for your employees and to provide consistent information protection.

We offer a weekly, bi-weekly, monthly or quarterly schedule.

CONSERVATION MINDED? Did you know that one ton of shredded paper (10 sixty-five gallon carts) will save 17 trees? At A1 Datashred, recycling shredded paper is a priority. All of the documents we shred are recycled. That recycled paper is used to make other paper products so it reduces the destruction of our forests, a concern shared by the citizens of Cambridge as well.
