American Shredding’s Process Guarantees Your Privacy

We've got you covered from the time we arrive at your property until you receive your Certificate of Destruction.

At American Shredding, we not only safely and securely destroy your papers or products, we give you peace of mind and tangible proof that it was all done correctly. Can your recycling center or office manager running a shred machine offer the same? Absolutely not!
