PROSHRED® pioneered the mobile paper shredding and recycling industry in the mid 1980’s and is recognized as a North American leader. PROSHRED® shreds and recycles confidential documents and proprietary materials for “fortune 500 companies”, “small and medium sized enterprises” as well as home based business and residential customers in all industry sectors including Healthcare, Financial, Government and High-Tech.

PROSHRED® combines unparalleled customer service with absolute security and is the only company to receive both ISO 9001-2008 and NAID AAA certification. PROSHRED®’s explosive growth is a result of increasing concerns with regard to “identity theft” and the “environment”.
