The Recovery Yard (formerly known as “Calvert’s Roll-Off Containers”) location at 7891 Jackson Rd. will be once again offering a live secure document shredding service starting for the season on Saturday, April 11th, 2015 (9am-12pm). In 2014, this service was able to divert 35,559 lbs of paper from the landfill.
The live shredding service is offered at this facility from April-November, but only occurring on the second Saturday of each month from 9am-12pm when the Allshred Services truck is present. Customers can expect to pay $4 per grocery bag and $6 per banker’s box for the service. A grocery bag typically holds around 16lbs of paper. Cash, check, and credit are accepted for this service, but there is a $10.00 minimum for credit transactions. Cash is preferred on-site. If customers do have over twenty boxes to shred, please contact Allshred Services directly at 419-467-2086.
Allshred Services prides itself on taking numerous security steps to assure customers that their documents remain confidential throughout the entire process. Customers can stay on-site to watch the shredding process happen. Once materials are destroyed in the truck, the paper material is transported to Allshred’s secure facility by GPS-tracked trucks. Full information about the process can be found on their website.
Customers who may need service during the week and don’t mind utilizing “lock-boxes” (not live document shredding) can choose Recycle Ann Arbor’s Drop-Off Station (2950 E. Ellsworth Rd.) shredding service. However, there is a $3 entry fee to access this site.
