Thinking about spring cleaning during tax season? Recycle Ann Arbor’s Recovery Yard (formerly known as “Calvert’s Roll-Off Containers”) location at 7891 Jackson Road will be once again offering a live secure document shredding service starting for the season on Saturday, April 9th, 2016 (9am-12pm).
In 2015, this service was able to divert 55,000 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 $6 per grocery bag and $8 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” (paper is securely shredded off-site) 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 and fees are still $6 per grocery bag and $8 per banker’s box.

The Recovery Yard also accepts items such as cardboard, metals, and common household recyclables* for drop-off recycling during these events – in addition to during the week. Additionally, they specialize in construction and demolition recycling as well as roll-off container rentals. For a full list of services and fees visit their website.

*A $3.00 fee for recycling these materials does apply at this site.
