Secure Document Shredding Service – Napa California
We at All American Mail Center Inc. take identity theft seriously. We strongly recommend that you shred all important documents that you are disposing of with a reputable company specializing in document destruction and disposal.
We do not use cross-cut shreders, because the rectangular paper slices they produce can be stiched back together by computer software.
Documents brought to us are placed in a secure collection container. They are collected and processed by Advanced Shred, which uses an industrial grinder to totally pulverize documents by shearing, tearing and crushing.
The pulverizing process is repeated until the paper particles can pass through the small holes of a security screen. Then, batches of the particles are baled and recycled with a domestic recycler. This process provides total security.
We offer free local pick up for 10 cases or more. Please call 707-255-7595 for pricing.
Identity theft is one of the fastest growing crimes in the US today. The single most effective way on countering and eliminating this threat is by shredding all important documents. We provide high grade shredding service at affordable prices.
According to the Napa Valley Register, “Napa County continues to rank among the national top hot spots for identity theft, according to a federal consumer protection agency.” This article was written by Kerana Todorov in the Napa Register posted on Wednesday, March 23, 2011.
