Residential Shredding

Safe & Secure Residential Shredding Service

Why is shredding an important practice for your family? Secure document shredding isn’t just a practice business should be implementing; in fact, it is equally important for residents to protect sensitive documents as well.

Households generate millions of documents every day, and many of these are discarded into trash cans or recycled once they are no longer needed. It is possible that the information contained in these documents could negatively affect your life if they fall into the wrong hands.

Prevent Identity Theft

In the event that your personal information isn’t properly disposed of, identity thieves will in many cases, find it and exploit it. Residential document shredding provides tangible security and cost-effective protection for your personal information.

Residential Shredding with Abraham’s On-Site Shredding Service

Our Residential Shredding Service is designed for customers who require a one-time purge service in order to destroy the documents that are no longer needed.

Our Residential Shredding Process

Once an appointment has been made, we will bring our fully equipped, self-contained mobile unit to your location to destroy all of the documents while on your premises so nothing leaves in readable form!

Customers are always welcome to witness the entire document destruction process.

Certificate of Destruction

A Certificate of Destruction is issued with every shred to verify that your documents were properly destroyed.

We commingle your shredded waste with other customers’ shredded waste and then it gets securely recycled.

This service is usually scheduled on an “as-needed” basis…such as: quarterly, semi-annually or annually. (All shredding is by appointment only.)

Locally owned and operated, we offer our Record Purge Shredding Service all over Southeast Wisconsin and Northeast Illinois.

What Documents Should You Consider Shredding?

It is generally recommended that you shred anything with personally identifiable information (PII).

Personal information is anything that can identify a specific individual or account. Besides names and addresses, it can also include signatures and nicknames, which you might not think of.

The following items are typically included in PII for homeowners:

  • Letters
  • Report cards
  • Utility bills
  • Old ID cards
  • Junk mail
  • Receipts
  • Banking Statements
  • Credit Card Statements

Homeowners can make sure their personal information is protected and safe through residential shredding services.
