Paper Tiger FAQs

Shredding Services - Onsite and Offsite

Paper Tiger is a AAA Certified member of the National Association for Information Destruction. This means that we handle the shredding of your sensitive documents -- not a third-party that may or may not properly, securely destroy your documents. In addition, our state-of-the-art facility includes 24/7 camera and alarm monitoring in all secured areas, and we require drug testing and full background checks on all of our employees.

No, regular staples and paper clips are fine. Large black binder or “elephant” clips need to be removed. Also, we don’t shred binders/notebooks, so please remove all documents in notebooks before you bring them for shredding.

Yes. Many business clients require this so we are happy to provide a destruction certificate of your shred projects. Here is a sample of our Certificate of Document Destruction.

Yes. There’s no charge if you bring your Electronics to us, except for hard drives, which cost $5 each. Here’s a list of the Electronics we accept. And if you hire us to pick up documents for shredding -- once or on an ongoing basis -- we will also pick up your Electronics.

Saturday Shred Fest

We understand that you may not have Bankers’ boxes or copy-paper boxes to bring in your documents. You can bring your papers to us in any box, bag, bin, or basket you have. Together we will determine the cost to shred your documents based on our standard price of $3 per copy paper sized box.

In order for us to service as many people as quickly as possible, we only accept cash and checks for Saturday Shred Events.

No. Just stop by between 8 am and 2 pm. Even if there is a line, it moves quickly.

We’re happy to help unload your vehicle if it’s not too busy when you arrive. If we aren’t available to help, you’re welcome to use our carts and dollies, which you’ll see by our warehouse entrance.

No. You can bring as few or as many papers to shred as you want. If you have more than 30 boxes to shred, please give us a call in advance so that we’re prepared for your arrival. (Most Shred Fest attendees bring 1-3 boxes.)

After you have dropped off your boxes and made your payment, you are free to leave. But, if you’d like to see how the paper shredding process works, we encourage you to stay and watch the fun.

We also offer Drop-Off Shredding Services, Monday-Friday, from 9 am- 5 pm. Stop by our warehouse during these days and times and watch us shred your documents. Although our weekday prices are slightly higher than our Saturday Shred Fest prices, we still charge less than other providers like office supply stores and copy centers. Our weekday pricing is $35 for the first 300 pounds and 10 cents for each additional pound over 300.
