Shredding services are usually one of the ‘forgotten’ services during a clean out. They come in many different forms, but which one fits your personal situation? This article will show you 4 different shredding services to help you pick the right service to your personal shredding needs.


On-Site shredding services

One of the most common shredding service we do is the On Site shredding service. But what does it mean? On-site shredding services provides a truck at your location to make sure the shredding is done at your facility. You sort out the paperwork that you want to have destroyed beforehand and our guys will come and take it to the truck.


  • Perfect for the bigger paper shredding jobs
  • witnessed destruction


  • Sort out all the paperwork beforehand
  • The cardboard boxes are not shredded

Off-Site shredding services

With off site shredding services we come to your facility and pick up the paperwork that needs to be shredded. The documents are shredded off site, at our facility.

Off Site paper shredding services comes in many forms:

  • 96- & 65 gallon containers
  • Paper Console bags
  • Banker boxes
  • Transfile boxes
  • Bags of paper

96-Gallon Bin

96-Gallon Bin

Any of these shredder services are possible, depending on the size of your project. An important thing to take into account is the amount of space that your facility has. We have customers that have a lot of paper to be shredded but simply do not have to space for a 96-Gallon bin.

You can have your bin or console for a day, a week, a month, depending on your needs.


‘Where can I shred documents?’ ‘Where do I find paper shredding services near me?’ We get these questions a lot. New York City offers many different kind of locations where you can shred you paper. With carry-in service you drop off your documents at a shredding location near you.

The type of documents that you want to be shredded mainly determine your type of carry-in shredding services.

When comparing different carry-in facilities it is sometimes tough to choose the right one. Make sure that you not only compare the price, but also the distance you need to travel and whether or not witnessed destruction is provided, if desired.

Electronic Media Destruction

Electronic media destruction is a very wide concept. It is basically the destruction of any kind of electronic media. To give you an idea, here’s some examples:

  • Cd’selectronic media destruction
  • Dvd’s
  • Hard drives
  • Computers
  • Tapes
  • Diskette’s
  • Film
  • X-Rays

An important aspect you can consider is finding a company that offers an environmentally friendly solution for your electronic devices. I will go deeper into this subject in another article.

  1. I like that you enumerated the different shredding services that we can choose from to fit our needs. Out of the 4 types of shredding services that you mentioned, on-site appealed to me the most because of how it’s done at your own facility. We have so may confidential papers in the office that we wish to dispose of. It’s important for us to make sure that these papers are going to be disposed of in front of us to avoid any problems of leakage of information in the future. For me, on-site shredding gives you the confidence of being secured. I will make sure to consider all your tips.

  2. That’s a valuable blog article; it was quite interesting and wonderful thinking about shredding services. I really appreciate sharing your post. This is a great pleasure to visit your website and to enjoy your excellent post here. Document destruction or shredding services are most important person, company and business. Keep writing.

  3. The best part of your blog for me is when you talked about how you can expect that shredding is going to be done at your facility when you choose on-site shredding service. My husband has a lot of sensitive documents that he’s looking to dispose of. It will give him peace of mind if he can personally see that these documents are being shredded right in front of him to ensure that no sensitive information is going to be leaked. Thanks for sharing this.

  4. I think that shredding services are a great idea, especially if there was an option for witnessed destruction. To watch the shredding company tear apart the paper would give me peace of mind in getting rid of un-needed documents. Thank you for your information on shredding services.

  5. The increase in the demand for home and commercial paper shredder types to be used in homes and offices everywhere is brought about by the rise in the crime called identity theft. Identity theft is basically a crime that an individual perpetrates against another by way of using the other person’s identity to make transactions or to get money from certain entities for themselves, leaving the real owner of the identity that was stolen or used deeply in debt.

  6. My husband and I gathered a lot of documents in our home that contain sensitive information, and we’re thinking of getting the papers shredded. Your article had great tips about choosing a service that could help us with this, and I liked how you said if we opt for a carry in service, we should take into consideration how far away the location is. Thanks; we’ll keep this in mind when getting our papers shredded.

  7. I’m glad that I found a good article where it explains to me what I can do with my garbage that piled up after the years. Is there any value for electronic parts or should I destroy that too?
