Secure Shredding

Protecting your business. Protecting your peace of mind.

Wasteco understands that your confidential documents contain sensitive information that could be a liability to your business or even your identity. Whether you are a major industrial client or a small operation, our secure services help you build safeguards, minimize risk, and track and document every stage of the process. We provide lockable stationary consoles, lockable mobile totes and banker storage boxes depending on your needs. Our mobile shredding vehicles deliver fast and reliable services right to your doorstep, with collection by bondable, insured staff. For plant-based shredding operations, our Dixie Recycling Centre offers 24-hour security surveillance and regular foot patrols. At our plant, proprietary cross-cut technology shreds documents and paper products into confetti-sized pieces that are then baled and sent to paper mills for recycling.
