Shred Works

Shred Works Local provider of Shredding, Record Storage, and eWaste Recycling. Since 1993 Shred Works has specialized in the Shredding and Recycling of paper and media items which contain sensitive information.

Confidential Shredding for Offices and Residential customers is not the only service we offer. Shred Works also provides Record Storage for customers looking to archive their files for long term use while still allowing for easy access. Whenever possible we recycle or donate items! So in 1995 with security in mind Recycling Works purchased a large plant-based shredder, installed a state-of-the art video monitoring security system and Recycling Works was “reborn” as Shred Works. Soon Shred Works was servicing a wide range of clients like healthcare facilities, banks and credit unions, mortgage and title companies, lawyers, accountants, small businesses, retail facilities and virtually any organization that needed to shred confidential information. Along the way, Shred Works became known for a number of key “firsts” including these highlights:

Along the way, Shred Works became known for a number of key “firsts” including these highlights:

In 2003 we became the first plant-based shredding company in the area to be awarded a AAA NAID Certification from the National Association for Information Destruction. (We have maintained our certification ever since.) Shred Works was also the first area shredding company to “double shred” all confidential documents, virtually eliminating any possibility that shredded materials could be reconstructed. Shred Works is the first and only area shredding company to offer a Three Point Guarantee which includes an information security guarantee, a life-time price freeze for all clients and an “On-Time or Shred for Free” service guarantee. Over the last thirteen years our reputation for secure shredding and recycling has grown and our client list has expanded. What started as a two-person, one-truck paper recycling business has grown to 10 trucks, 20 full-time employees, all housed in a brand new, highly-secure, 20,000 square foot facility. We thank all of our clients that have made our rapid growth possible and pledge to continue our commitment that has yielded these amazing results…


Come by and let us help you get rid of that sensitive information you have been hiding onto.


Have a very safe and happy Memorial Day!
