What will I have to pay?

Adelante Document Destruction Services pricing depends on what services you or your business needs. For example, the price varies based on what you need destroyed (paper or e-media), how many high-security bins your company needs, and how often you require service. The price also varies by the amount of documents or hard-drives you need destroyed and whether you need a one-time purge or on-going shredding plan.

To get a general idea of the fees that may apply, Adelante Document Destruction Services provides the following walk-in pricing for various shredding options:

Standard Shredding

$0.20 per pound; $10.00 minimum (a standard banker's box of paper weighs about 30 pounds)

High Security Shredding

$0.52 per pound; $12.00 minimum

Witness Shredding

$0.72 per pound; $17.00 minimum

E-Media Shredding

If you need more specific information and are not sure how to gauge how many pounds of paper you have to shred, please contact our sales professionals for a quote that meets your needs, or get a quote online. Adelante will be happy to send a document retention and destruction specialist to your site to help assess your destruction needs.

What if I just need a few boxes of paper shredded from an estate or my home office?

Adelante has the same fees (stated above) for individuals and small businesses. We do, however, have minimum fees that apply when people bring in small amounts of paper. Standard shredding has a $10.00 minimum.

To estimate your fees, keep in mind that a standard bankers box full of paper weighs 30 to 35 pounds and would therefore cost you $10.00 for standard shredding services. If you want to witness the shredding of your documents personally or want it shredded in the smallest pieces we offer, the minimums above would apply.

Ready to shred? Simply drop your boxes off at our conveniently located site and work directly with Adelante's customer service personnel. It's a simple process, making it easy for you to safely and securely get rid of accumulated documents without standing over your personal shredder for hours on end. Our location, operating hours, map, and phone number are listed above. Thank you for considering using our services. We value each and every customer.
