Document Shredding Service

Where and When

Document shredding service is offered at the Pleasantview Road Drop-off Center.

You can drop-off documents for shredding anytime the Pleasantview Road Drop-off Center is open: 8-4 weekdays and 8-3 Saturdays. You will see that your documents are locked up in a fenced area of our processing facility. This document storage cage is also under surveillance to ensure your documents are secure until they are shredded.

Due to ongoing labor shortages, anytime drop-off for shredding documents has been suspended from Memorial Day through Labor Day.  If you are in need of document shredding, appointments will be held weekly, on Wednesdays from 8-10 am. You must schedule an appointment to witness your documents being shredded. Appointments can be made online, by clicking the green box below. Or you can call the office at 231-348-0640 to schedule an appointment.
