Secure Paper Shredding Service 

We care about our earth not on only on Earth Day but EVERY day! Our recycling is done within our own country, not outsourced overseas, which creates a large carbon footprint. We operate the only "green" mobile shred truck in the San Francisco Bay Area. Shred Defense™ is also a Bay Area Green Business certified.
Our Paper shredding is done by process of Pulverization!
Pulverization is the newest and most secure way to destruct your confidential information. Our standard paper output product is approximately 1/8"-5/8' random pulverized pieces. Other companies produce a 5/8" width but the length can be as long as your document. Pulverization leaves no trace of sensitive information like social security numbers. We offer a government-specified approved shred output, which has allowed us to do work for United States government agencies. Shred Defense™. will also pulverize your information technology materials such as hard drives, CDs, tapes, x-rays, films, textiles, etc.


This means, we:
1. Pulverize your data
2. Bale the paper output
3. Recycle using a domestic recycler
Your information is always under our control. We don’t use any subcontractors.
Shred Defense™ is an ethically owned and operated family run business.
With Shred Defense™, the customer always comes first! Always!!

When we initially signed with Shred Defense™ Shredding I did research and found that not only are they one of the most secure shredding companies in the Bay Area (one of four that have some spiffy accreditation which means they are continually checked for security and quality) but they also recycle all the shredded bits. Plus they have been super easy to work with (not like the last shredding company we had) and they are cheaper than all the others. Plus there are a small family business.

Thanks Nancy
The service was awesome!
Celina Until my next call!

Hello Nancy and Ernest:
It was a pleasure to meet you at the GreenFest.
I am happy to report that I was treated very nicely when I took a load of shredding to your facility on Friday. Rob met us at our car right away, and brought out a cart. He explained the steps as he went along, and shredded our job right away (which made me happy).
Here is a link to the article that I wrote about your company. If you have friends or associates who would enjoy reading it, please forward the link to them.

Hi Nancy:
I dropped my bags off a few days ago to be shredded. I just wanted to let you know how happy I am with your service. It's easy to find and affordable. The employe who greeted me with a smile and took my bags to be shredded,
was very nice and explained Shred Defense™ can also shred other things, like hard
drives (which I didn't realize! I will have several to shred in the near future).
Take care,
Eric O.
