This is a paper shredding service. Because the paper we shred is recycled, there are certain items we avoid shredding with paper.

1. We avoid shredding plastic such as plastic bags, zip-lock bags, plastic sleeves, plastic sheet protectors, plastic file folders, corrugated plastic, garbage pails, plastic file boxes.

2. We avoid shredding items that collect and hold paper, such as 3 ring binders, zipper binders, specialty binders, very large and medium sized binder clips that grip large amounts of paper together. Paper needs to be removed from these type items before shredding. Regular size paper clips and staples are acceptable.

3. We do not shred heavy duty cardboard such as corrugated cardboard boxes. If paper is brought to us in boxes or bags, we dump the paper into our shredding bins and return the box or bag to the patron or will leave the boxes for the event organizer as we have no capacity in the shred truck to transport boxes away at the end of the event. Paper grocery bags are acceptable for shredding.
