No. The service was established in 2009. 13 years later, there has never been a breach in security.
No. The material is shredded when the location’s containers fill up. Shred Connect offers on-site shredding by appointment. You can reach the office at 562-600-8711.
When you drop your material off, the container is unlocked and the lid is opened. At this point, you dump your material (keeping the box/bag). Once the material is deposited in the container, the chain-of-custody changes. We ask that you make sure before you drop off your material that you do not want it back.
The manager will provide you with a visual estimate.
