Residential Shredding

Residential Shredding Services

Personal and confidential documents contain a wealth of information about your life and financial accounts. In the wrong hands, this same information can be used to steal your identity or control your money. 

HES’s residential shredding service offers customers like you professional-grade shredding on a smaller scale to safely and securely dispose of any unneeded or sensitive documents. Let us know how much you want shred, and we’ll take care of the rest.

Our residential shredding services give homeowners the same level of privacy protection that we supply to businesses and corporations. Just gather what you want to shred, and we’ll arrive at your front door with everything needed for the job.

Residential Shredding: Where and When You Need It

Boxes full of old papers or files can be heavy and hard to move, and there’s a risk of lost pages in transit. Our residential shredding service completely eliminates those factors.

Tell us how much you have to shred and when you would like us to arrive. You don’t even need to remove any staples or paper clips from your documents – our shredders can make quick work of small fasteners, and they’ll be safely sorted out from the paper bits upon return to our facility.

Common Home Documents That Should Be Shredded
  • Expired forms of ID
  • Credit card bills and solicitations
  • Out-of-date legal documents
  • Anything containing a copy of your SSN
  • ATM receipts
  • Travel itineraries and plane tickets
  • Utility bills
  • Pay stubs
  • Items bearing a signature
  • Bank statements
  • Cancelled or voided checks

What to Expect on Shredding Day

Your modern, state-of-the-art shredding truck will arrive at whatever location you specified. Your uniformed technician will safely and securely transfer your documents into the truck, and you’ll be able to watch in real-time as your documents are shredded right in front of you. Strict end-to-end security protocols will be followed, even as the particles are transported back to our facility for recycling.

Proof of Destruction

At the conclusion of your appointment, your technician will provide you with a Certificate of Destruction. This is a legal record verifying that your papers were destroyed according to the regulations established by all current federal and state privacy laws, and that the destruction was extensive enough to prevent any chance of reconstruction or recovery.

Why Shredding is Important for Residents

  • Stop identity theft before it happens
  • Safe and thorough disposal of personal information
  • Clean out old papers and reclaim room in your home
  • No need to buy and maintain an expensive shredding machine
  • Save time and grant yourself peace of mind

100% Compliance with Privacy Laws

There are many different laws that dictate how personal information should be handled and disposed. These laws are especially important for businesses, but for homeowners and small business owners, these laws are a great way to make sure your information is disposed safely and securely. HES is fully compliant with all current federal and state mandates for information destruction, which means you can be absolutely confident that your documents were destroyed past any point of retrieval and with no chance of compromise.
