Can I bring my documents in any sized box?
We only accept standard Bankers Boxes (approx. 16” L x 12” W x 10” H) in good condition (not falling apart) with handles & lids.
*If your documents are not in a bankers box;You can purchase bankers boxes from us for $8.95 + tax/each which includes the cost of destruction. We have space for you to transfer your paper into the box(es) you purchased.
Can I watch my documents get destroyed?
No. Our shredding process takes place in a secure, access-controlled area that is not open to the public. Rest assured, because we work with Hospitals, Medical organizations and the HR departments of some of Canada’s largest corporations, your documents will be destroyed in line with the strictest of security requirements.
Do I get a certificate of destruction when my documents are destroyed?
Your documents are processed in larger batches with enterprise clients. This allows us to provide a low cost, subsidized service benefiting charities. For this reason, we are unable to provide certificates of destruction on an individual box by box basis.
Why are your prices so low when compared to other shredding services?
Other shredding services are primarily focused on profits. The Salumatics We-Cycle Program was designed to give back and make an impact in the local community. Our services are subsidized with the intention of providing more funds to local charities and making a bigger difference.
Will you come to pick up my documents?
We have a team of drivers and a fleet of trucks that can pick up documents. Whether you need a one-time removal or are looking to schedule regular pickups at your company’s office. Get an estimate!
Do you offer onsite mobile shredding?
No, onsite mobile shredding equipment is expensive to purchase and maintain. This would increase the cost of destruction, directly reducing the funds that would go to charity.
Is there a limit to how many boxes of paper I can shred?
No, we can shred as many bankers boxes as you have to destroy. Bring them to one of or retail drop off locations or call us to schedule a pickup.
Can I buy boxes to take home with me so I can fill them up with paper & then return them to be destroyed later?
Yes, you can purchase boxes from us for $8.95 each + tax. Take them home with you and fill them up at your own pace. Once full, just drop them off at one of our retail locations.
Do you shred electronics including CDs, hard drives and other computer parts?
No. We only shred general office items that are mostly made of paper. Documents, folders, binders, books, manuals and the like. Staples, paperclips, metal rings and plastic coverings from binders do not need to be removed in advance of shredding.
