Do I have to remove rubber bands, paper clips, staples, or other binding materials from my documents prior to shredding?
How quickly can my materials be picked up?
Usually with offsite shredding we can pickup within 1 day. Onsite shredding we schedule within 2 days. With routed work we will pickup on the days established in advance.
Does Shred San Diego handle non-paper items?
Yes, in fact we can shred:

Will you supply containers for us to place material in for shredding?

What makes Shred San Diego different from the competition?
We provide the quickest pickup times in the industry and our pricing is very competetive.
Can I watch my materials be shredded?
Customers are always welcome to watch material shredding at our facility or on our mobile shredding trucks.
Why would someone choose offsite over onsite shredding?
Offsite shredding is generally less expensive but still very secure. We are able to process more material quicker. The average mobile shredding truck only handles 3,500 Lbs per hour and our facility shredder handles close to 14,000 lbs per hour.
Why is this so important?
A consistent particle size prevents large pieces from escaping from the shredder. At Shred San Diego, we use the latest technology combined with screens on our shredders that result in both smaller and more consistent particle size.
Is Shred San Diego Insured?
Yes, we have both liability insurance and errors & ommissions
Is Shred San Diego a NAID member?
Yes, we are members of NAID (National Association of Information Destruction)
