Document Shredding

On-site and off-site services that adhere to federal security standards & uphold zero-waste paper recycling.

Electronic Destruction and Recycling

Manual disassembly and materials recovery for environmentally sound disposal, plus physical destruction of hard drives to protect data.


We are able to serve you with regularly scheduled services, or periodic services as needed for document purges or relocation. We use cross-cut particle shredders to ensure compliance with the highest security standards.

  • Notarized certificate of destruction is available immediately upon completion.
  • Customer witness of the shredding is available upon request.

On-site Shredding

  • Consoles: Our security specialist comes to your site and unlocks your console, emptying the bag into one of our locked, rolling containers. The materials are then secured with a lock and rolled out to the truck.
  • Bins:  The locked container is rolled out to the truck. Once the container is at the truck, it is unlocked and loaded onto the tipper. The tipper raises the bin inside the truck and dumps the materials into the shredder. At no point does our security specialist have to physically move the papers into the shredder.
  • All ShredX bins and consoles can be exchanged on a predetermined schedule for ongoing shredding needs or scheduled for one time contracted pick-ups.

Off-site Shredding

  • Consoles: Our security specialist comes to your site and unlocks your console, emptying the bag into one of our locked, rolling containers.
  • Locked shredding bin: Our security specialist picks up the locked bin, loads it onto one of our off-site trucks and the truck itself is then locked. All bins are brought back to our facility where they are kept secure until they are ready to be destroyed within 24 hours of receiving the materials.
  • When the materials are ready to be destroyed, the bins are unlocked by a bonded supervisor and loaded immediately into the shredder. From the moment the consoles are emptied, the bins are kept securely locked at all times.

Secure Chain-of-Custody

  • ShredX provides you with locked bins and consoles for optimal security to ensure confidentiality of your data
  • These remain locked at your facility and can only be opened by our security specialists or your designated staff member.
  • Our strict chain-of-custody, for both on-site and off-site services, is stringently followed for each and every transaction.

Recycling Services

  • Shredded documents are baled and shipped to paper mills for reuse.
  • By partnering with sister company, Five Star Carting, ShredX has access to more recycling capacity than any other privately held company in New York City.

Electronics Scrap

Far too often, discarded computers and electronics sit in landfills. They leach hazardous chemicals into the atmosphere and soil and any sensitive data stored on the devices may still be accessible.

Recycling your electronics is the safer, more environmentally friendly alternative. Computers, monitors, keyboards, mice, laptops, mainframes, modems, hard drives, floppy drives, cellular and land line phones and all connecting wires and cables, printers and small copy machines can be recycled.

  • Off-site processing:
    • We deliver collection bins for you to fill with all your materials, which will then be picked up for recycling off-site.
    • We provide a certificate of electronic recycling, serving as legal proof of safe disposal.
    • Deliveries and pick-ups are daily, weekly, monthly or as you require.
  • All components are disassembled by hand and completely stripped down to each and every reclaimable material. This method provides superior recycling efficiencies to that of incinerating.
  • Hard drives and memory chips are physically cut into pieces, making it impossible to recover any data. They are also never resold or recirculated, which ensures the security of your data.
  • All materials are handled in a legal and environmentally correct manner.
