I need something shredded. What do I do?
There are several options. If it's something you can bring to us, just give us a call. You can drop off your confidential material at our shop between 8am-4pm Monday through Friday. You can even stick around and watch us shred it (if you'd like). If it's a big shredding job or you're a business with regular shredding needs we can come to you. See our Services page for more details.
Do I need to worry about removing paper clips, rubber bands, and staples?
Nope! Our shredders, both in the trucks and the shop, can handle those.
What can't you shred?
If you are using our on-site services, please avoid including plastics, big pieces of metal, and cardboard in your cans or boxes. We offer destruction services for non-paper items like credit and debit cards, ID cards, videotapes, microfilm, microfiche, and much more at our shop. Ask us about it!
Where are you located?
We are located at 1250 McGee Street in Abilene, Texas. You can head over to our Contact Us page for more detailed information.
When are you open?
We're open Monday through Friday from 8am to 4pm. If you'd like to bring us something to shred, please call ahead so we know you're coming!
What forms of payment do you accept?
We accept checks, cash, paypal (firstname.lastname@example.org), debit cards, Mastercard, Visa, American Express and Discover. We once got a pecan pie from a happy customer. We were tempted to add that to our list of accepted payment options, but practicality and our waist lines won out.
Can I bring already shredded or non-confidential papers to you for recycling?
We do accept some paper for recycling. We don't recycle books, newspapers, or magazines.
What happens to the paper after it has been shredded?
When we have around 43,000 lbs of shredded, baled paper, we contact our associates at a paper mill to come haul it away. At the mill the paper is recycled and used to make other paper products like paper towels and tissues.

We're local. If you are in Abilene, you don't have to prearrange a scheduled pick up time. You can give us a call and, on average, have your shredding picked up within two business days, often much sooner. Same day shredding is a common occurrence at Shredding Services of Texas, Inc. 3.
