We have an office shredder so why would I need a shredding service?

Using a shredding service, such as MinnKota, is much more cost effective. You avoid unnecessary labor, maintenance, and disposal costs. In addition, you do not deal with the noise and dust that office shredders produce.


Can we use your shredding service for record clean outs one time or for annual record clean out?

MinnKota can meet any and all of your service requirements. We offer flexible schedules to accommodate your one time or annual record cleanouts.


Do staples, paper clips, paper binders need to be removed?

No. These items can all remain with your documents saving you considerable time.


What happens after the material is shredded? 

Once shredded, the material is compressed into approximately 1,400 pound bales and securely stored until they are shipped to a recycling mill where they are pulverized and made into new paper products.


Can I view the destruction?

For highly sensitive material, or if required by your business, MinnKota can accommodate client observation, which allows you to view the destruction process.
