It's Our Business To Ensure That No One Knows Your Business

Des Moines, IA


About Us

THE SHREDDER is a locally owned on-site document destruction company. The staff at THE SHREDDER is dedicated to keeping our clients' confidential information safe, secure, and out of the wrong hands. Our company is AAA certified by the National Association for Information Destruction (NAID), Better Business Bureau, and our Certified Destruction Agents are bonded, badged, and uniformed.

Every business, even home-based businesses, have information that requires destruction and all businesses will need to securely destroy confidential data. Confidential and corporate information is accessible for accidental or intentional viewing if not handled properly. On-site shredding offers our clients the peace-of-mind knowing that sensitive information has been destroyed on their property. It is THE SHREDDER'S business to ensure that no one knows your business.

On-site shredding assures that sensitive documents are destroyed on location before the recycling process begins. The shredded material is compacted and mixed with other data, making it virtually unidentifiable. The combination of security containers and on-site shredding provides an unbroken chain of custody until the material is destroyed. We offer multiple services that can be tailored to your secure shredding needs. Call us for a FREE assessment and site visit.
