Residential Shredding

Residential Shredding Services - 
Chattanooga, TN


Today, everybody is worried about the dangers of identity theft. You don’t want to be turned down for a loan – or even a job – because someone stole your personal information and opened up accounts in your name. You certainly don’t want to have to deal with some stranger charging their life expenses to your credit card!

Docu-Shred LLC understands the importance of identity theft protection, and we’re doing our part to keep residents’ personal details secure. Our residential paper shredding services can help you keep your personal information safe as easily, conveniently, and affordably as possible.


How much can I shred?

You can shred as much as you like! Our minimum fee covers 300 pounds of paper. It fits into a 95-gallon bin, and it’s equal to about 8 boxes of copy paper. You don’t even have to worry about paper clips, spiral binding, or staples. The shredder will take care of that.

How much will it cost?

Our minimum fee is $30. Every time we dump the 95-gallon bin into the shredder, it costs $30. Most families can have their personal documents taken care of for a single low price.

When should I shred?

It's always best to create an annual system for the destruction of old records and files, with advice from your accountant and attorney. As a reminder, here's your handy shredding schedule:
