The Vermont Shred shredding vehicle is capable of shredding massive amounts of papers very quickly. For a batch of papers that it would take an in-house employee 8 hours to shred, our shredding service would process the paper in 15 minutes. Our services allow your employees to spend their time on valuable tasks that are oriented towards reaching your business goals, while maintaining confidentiality and freeing up your resources.

Payroll stubs, account information, addresses, phone numbers, applications, background checks, budgets, memos, design ideas, legal documents, manuals, training information, trade secrets or any type of confidential information. Any paper that is being thrown away can be placed in the Vermont Shred bin to be recycled.

Vermont Shred offers both scheduled services and purge services. Scheduled services are for businesses that regularly generate confidential information. The volume of documents produced will determine the frequency of their services. Purge services are for businesses and households that do not have a steady need for document destruction services. Their visits are determined on an as-needed basis.

Vermont Shred will present a signed Certificate of Destruction for each visit to your location. Therefore, Vermont Shred assumes all liability for your confidential documents the second they leave your hands.

The shredded material is compacted and mixed with other data, making it virtually unidentifiable. Then, the shredded papers are manufactured into recycled paper products. This ultimately reduces costs and waste, and creates environmental sustainability.
