Why Shred?
1) According to the Consumer Sentinel Network, over 24,000 Texans became victims of identity theft in 2010.

2) The most common forms of identity theft occur through forging driver’s licenses and personal government documents. To help take away the access to these materials, you should dispose of sensitive documents that contain this information.

Why Recycle?
1) According to Privacy Rights Clearinghouse, nearly 7 million personal records were compromised from lost or stolen portable devices like cell phones and PDAs last year.

2) Only 63% of all paper consumed in the United States is recovered for recycling according to the Paper Industry Association Council.

    Are there box size limitations and must it be cardboard boxes?

    1. There is not a size limitation for boxes and they do not have to be cardboard boxes. If you have your documents in plastic bins, we will simply dump everything you have into the shredders and hand you back your box. I hope this answers your question and we look forward to seeing you there!

        Wonderful!!! Thanks for your fast response

  2. Issues regarding fraud and identity theft are on the rise. For this reason more businesses are ensuring that their documents are permanently destroyed by using a paper shredding service. It is not just businesses using paper shredding services but also individuals with sensitive documents, governments, research companies, and more. A quality paper shredding service will ensure that documents are permanently destroyed.
