Super Shredders

Initially, Super Shredders started with large console shredding units into which participants of the Center fed documents. In 2001, with the cooperation of the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity, Super Shredders expanded and upgraded its facility. Today, we have high speed shredding equipment along with state-of-the-art surveillance equipment. Super Shredders has emerged as the area’s trusted source for secure document destruction. We maintain regular pickup routes throughout the area and continue to expand our service. Super Shredders is not limited to business use only. Just drive up to the dock with documents to destroy during Super Shredders business hours, and we will shred them at a very low cost.

Outsourcing is More Secure and Saves Money

Imagine the time it would take an employee to shred a banker’s box of documents feeding a small office shredder five sheets at a time. In addition, this exposes your sensitive information, such as payroll documents, to entry level employees. Even considering minimum wage, it is more cost effective, not to mention provides peace of mind, to outsource your shredding.

Do-It-Your-Self Shredding Leaves No Records of Compliance

If you were audited or had a legal compliance issue brought against your company, could you show that you are compliant with the law? W e provide our customers with written document destruction verification to ensure your compliance with all laws.

Employees Do Not Use Office Shredders

Often, employees do not have time to wait for slow and inefficient shredders to complete their task or the shredder is jammed a nd broken. This leads to the “lazy toss” in the trash. One “lazy toss” can cost your company thousands of dollars. Do you have the five to ten minutes to spare to un-jam a paper shredder?
