Document Destruction for Business & Industry

Documents containing important and confidential information need to be protected and shredded when no longer required. Hefty fines have been imposed on companies for improperly protecting and discarding sensitive personal information. Whether you have a one-time purge of old outdated documents or want to schedule a regular monthly service, our mobile shredding truck allows us to conveniently and securely shred all materials on-premise, ensuring that your important information does not end up in the wrong hands.

Securely Shred

  • Financial documents
  • Personal and confidential information
  • Receipts and checks
  • Company information
  • Policies and reports
  • Tax documents
  • All paper needing to be recycled

Sorting or removing paper clips or binding is not necessary. Our mobile shredder can handle all types of documents, folders, and paper.

One Time Purge:

Materials are destroyed on-site in our mobile shredding truck. From one box to hundreds of boxes, no job is too big or small. Purge services are offered to businesses and residences in the Birmingham Metro area. If you are outside of the area, call us as we often work in other parts of the state and may be able to accommodate.
