When it's time to securely and completely destroy sensitive documents, a proper disposal process is no longer an option. We make it a company policy to begin a shredding program by defining what documents must be shredded.


When it comes to secure shredding, there is one inescapable truth that should govern deployment efforts; the closer the points of disposal are to employees, the greater the compliance with shredding policies is. 

Total destruction, Total peace of mind.


Protect your intellectual property, customer relationship and resources and budgetary information by securely shredding discarded documents.

The SMART WAY RECYCLING SHREDDING SERVICE also conducts shredding for large quantities of old records and publications which is called (purges). We do bulk purge services for all Companies and Industrial Warehouses, with no pick up charges.
