Paper Recycling & Paper Shredding Park Ridge, IL
Park Ridge, IL Paper Shredding Service
Shred Spot was founded in 2009 with the goal of providing document destruction in Park Ridge with a higher level of customer service and convenience than the industry norm. We have grown every year and look forward to adding an entirely new type of paper shredding service to our repertoire in 2017. All of the paper we shred is made into 1,300 to 1,500 pound bales. We then send a truckload of bales (40,000 to 45,000 lbs) to the paper mills to be turned into recycled paper. Even our forklift, which we use to move the bales, is environmentally friendly. It runs on battery power which is far more energy efficient than diesel or propane powered forklifts and does not emit harmful fumes.
You can bring your papers to us by appointment and watch as they get shredded. There is no minimum amount of paper required. Pricing is by the pound and depends on volume. Bring it to us in boxes, bags or loose. We will bring a cart or pallet to your vehicle to help unload and bring it into our plant. Don’t worry about removing staples, paper clips or binder clips. Your shredded paper gets mixed with other paper and automatically baled into 1,400 lb bales. It is then sent to a paper mill to be recycled into paper towels and toilet paper. We ship to Kimberly-Clark, Georgia Pacific, International Paper and SCA. What about the cardboard boxes that held your paper? They get baled and sent to a cardboard plant to be made into recycled cardboard and box board.
