Ark-La-Tex Shredding utilizes a state-of-the-art fleet of mobile shredding vehicles to shred at your place of business (On-Site) and then return the shredded paper to our own secure bailing facility. We will provide all necessary security containers and will work with you to decide on the best type and number of security container for your company. We will deliver and set-up all of the required security containers for your convenience. Thereafter, simply drop your confidential and sensitive documents into the locked container-slot and we will do the rest.

Our representatives will pick up your locked containers and shred the documents on-site. Every process is monitored by video and the on-site process is not only quick, but also secure, efficient and convenient.
