We will shred any color or type of paper, including hanging file folders. Also, you don’t have to worry about paper clips, staples, and rubber bands. Our state-of-the-art shredding trucks will grind it all.

The answer is simple – security.  Hiring a shredding company ensures the secure destruction of your confidential business and personal documents; general recycling does not.  Recycling services often use open, unlocked collection containers, and their employees are not usually screened. Basically, recycling services usually consist of your non-shredded papers transported in a truck to a warehouse, which is accessible to the public.  Bottom line, from collection to destruction, when you use a recycling company, your confidential information is visible and accessible to anyone looking to steal identities of corporate secrets.

You don’t need to. Our industrial-strength shredders can rip through all of this.

No, just drop all of the contents into our locked security bins. ShredTex will render it all useless upon shredding.

Yes you may. Many different sizes and colors are available. You may order these on-line, by phone or fax.

Our standard bins hold 200-250 pounds.

Absolutely, ShredTex services many small businesses.  We recognize each employee in a small organization wears numerous hats and that company resources may be limited.  Small organizations benefit by professionally outsourcing non-revenue-producing functions, like shredding.  The ShredTex mission is to provide all-size businesses with the most advanced, secure, efficient, and cost-effective solution to safeguard your business and personal information data.  Even if you have less than ten employees, we will work with you to find the right options and services to meet your needs and budget.  Remember, we offer services ranging from infrequent purges to frequently scheduled on-site shred services.

We can drop off as many containers as you think you will need, before the shredding date, for you to use to sort your files.

Yes. All of the shredded paper is taken to a recycling company to be used as feedstock for various recycled products. The other media is taken to a waste-to-energy plant for generation of energy, which is transferred to the local electrical grid.

No, shredding is done with the large, commercial shredder permanently mounted in our truck(s)  We would park the truck in a location such as your parking lot or adjacent to your building. Shredding is done on-site, where you can watch, if you would like. This allows for total security! This method is best in the industry.

Yes, you can keep your boxes to reuse them on your next visit, or we can take them away.

Yes. We offer a variety of containers, both lockable and non-lockable to meet your needs.

Money!  It will cost you 3 to 5 times more to shred in-house than to have a shredding service.  Amortization of a shredder, staff time, and square footage for the operation, maintenance, power costs, and disposal costs all add up to much more than we charge and we do all the work!

Yes we do.  Immediately following the completion of the requested shredding we will provide a certificate of destruction.

No, it does not. The Certificate of Destruction is supporting documentation for your Records Manager and Retention Program.

Just call us and we will come out early. We will reset your schedule from that date of service.

Manually shredding documents is costly and it wastes valuable labor hours. It is inefficient to have your valuable employees standing over an office shredder dropping in one or two pages at a time. Since a good office shredder shreds approximately 20 pounds of paper per hour, it would take you three hours to shred a case of paper. In addition, the average office shredder shreds documents in 5/8″ strips, which can be easily reconstructed.  At ShredTex, our on site shredding trucks turn your paper into confetti and can destroy up to to 8000 pounds of paper per hour.
