FREE shredding events in Orange County
Most free shredding events limit the number of boxes you can bring to 2. This helps ensure that everyone that shows up won’t have to wait hours in line to get their documents shredded. I’ve shredded at an event where a guy brought a box truck full of document boxes to be shredded. Everyone had to wait for him to unload and shred over 100 boxes!
The best free shredding events are sponsored by community organizations and local businesses who have rules to make sure everyone who attends leaves happy and satisfied. Most of the time they also get a free donut and coffee:)
Some city sponsored events have no limits and can generate long lines of vehicles and angry people. I avoid these free shredding events as it is a poor reflection on Shred Bull.
When we are hired to do an event we do our best to make things run smoothly. For information about booking your own shredding event call us. The price is $349 for 2 hours. 949-459-3278
Free community shredding events make your town a safer place and enhances your local community.

Does your city’s Free Shredding Event allow you to witness the shredding?
Witnessing the shredding is important, and the best way to ensure that your confidential documents are properly destroyed. This is why privacy laws like HIPAA require that patient information containing documents are shredded while the practice can watch.
Watch out for OFF SITE SHREDDING.
Often times community free shredding events are so over crowded that they cut corners and allow shredding companies to collect paper and shred it at some other location. They call this “off site shredding’. This is an unsafe practice.
Shred Bull does not participate in any event that does off site shredding and allows paper to leave the event un-shredded. Many of the city sponsored events allow this ‘off site’ pick up and shred later practice to take place, which is why you will not find Shred Bull participating in those free shredding events.
Any time you hire a shredding company ask if you can watch the shredding take place, if they don’t, find another place to shred your documents.
Don’t feel like driving all your documents to a free shredding event?
