Sometimes, with smaller amounts of paper or documents to be shredded, it is easier to consolidate them and bring them to Kent Record Management's convenient drop-off shredding locations throughout Western Michigan.
While we offer onsite mobile shredding and offsite shredding collection services, you might prefer to bring it to us on your schedule.
We offer an easy, affordable solution for destroying your confidential documents. Simply stop by one of our drop-off shredding locations when it is convenient for you. There’s no need to make an appointment. You don’t even have to remove staples and paperclips! Simply bring us your files and we’ll do the rest.
How to Prepare for Drop-Off Shredding
- Ensure that your documents have been thoroughly examined to remove any combustible materials, metal objects, office equipment, computer cables, old cell phones, batteries, food, or other garbage that may be harmful to our shredder.
- Remove documents from 3-ring binders and any plastic casings such as documents in plastic folders, plastic covers or plastic bags.
- You do not need to remove staples, paper clips, hanging folders (with metal strips), manila folders, paper board legal binders, spiral notebook binders, or books. We can handle these!
