FREE shredding events in Orange County

Most free shredding events limit the number of boxes you can bring to 5. 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!

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.  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. 

Free events are only free to attendees, make sure to thank your sposors should you attend a free shredding event in southern california.  Much of the time you also get a free donut and coffee:)

Free community shredding events make your town a safer place and enhances your local community.  Read or free shredding event comprehensive guide here.

Very few private community events go over 100 boxes. For pricing we consider a box to be a standard bankers box that measures 10” x 12” x 15” If you don’t have your documents in boxes, bags or totes are also fine. We put all of your documents into our 95 gallon cart, the cart holds 10 boxes, so we will get an accurate count:)

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.
