Live Document Shredding at the Recovery Yard

From April 14th through November 10th 2018, Live Document Shredding service will be offered at the Recovery Yard at 7891 Jackson Rd., Ann Arbor, MI. On the second Saturday of each month through November from 9 am to 12 pm, you can bring important documents and have them disposed of securely. In 2017, we were able to divert over 48,000 lbs of paper from the landfill. The live shredding service is offered at the Recovery Yard through our partners, Allshred Services. Allshred Services prides itself on taking numerous security steps to assure documents remain confidential throughout the entire process. Customers can stay on site to observe their documents being shredded. Once materials are destroyed, the paper shreds are transported to Allshred's secure facility by GPS-tracked trucks. Full information about the process can be found on their website
