American Shredding - Oakland may specialize in destruction, but it's in the business of protection. The licensed, bonded, and insured collectors understand that until your confidential documents are no more than thin, illegible strips of rubbish—they’re valuable and must be treated with sensitivity.
One way they get the job done is by shredding the documents immediately in mobile trucks. The collectors can also pick up the materials and shred them at their facility, a system that comes with a set of safeguards: documents are transported in locked, secured, and GPS-tracked trucks and destroyed within 24 hours. Furthermore, customers can choose a shred size they feel comfortable with, and all employees undergo background screening and drug tests. After the materials have been shredded, American Shredding - Oakland’s staffers haul the residue to local paper mills for recycling. They also offer hard-drive shredding for those who don’t trust their computers to self-implode when compromised.
