Cost Per Pickup:

  • $9 for 30 and 100 lb. containers
  • $17 for 200 lb. bulk container
  • $25 for 300 lb. bulk container
  • Charges will be billed directly to each department for payment with a Purchasing Card.

Pick-up Options:

Departments may choose a 4 weeks or 8 weeks schedule.  On the scheduled pick up day, the vendor will pick up the container and take it to their secure shredding truck, and then return the empty container to the department. Departments are welcome to watch the shredding process.
