Staples Shredding  Is Your Privacy at Risk?

Staples Shredding, Are your documents secure?

You are looking for an easy way to shred a couple of boxes of paper. You do a search and, low and behold, your local Staples Store offers shredding. You trust Staples' secure shredding services, so you call, and it’s $1.00 per pound. Shred Bull is closer to $0.25 per pound. You think, "That’s fine," and go for it.

But wait – is your privacy really secure with Staples shredding?

What are the risks of using Staples shredding services?

Problem 1: Delayed Shredding

Many stores like Staples, FedEx, UPS, and local mailing stores outsource their shredding services. This means your documents are not shredded immediately. They could sit in the store for days or even weeks until they are picked up for shredding.

Problem 2: Security Concerns

We've seen stores leave the cart key in the lock, an unsafe practice. At a local mail and ship store, we were told they keep the wheeled cart, where you put your most private documents, until it is full. This could mean your financial/private documents sit in the cart in the store for weeks, accessible to anyone who walks in.

Shred Bull has local drop off shredding locations where you will not have to feed your documents through a slot in the cart, rather our shredding partners will unlock the cart and allow you to empty a whole box into the cart.  These locations will ensure the safety of your documents until the cart is full, and then Shred Bull comes by and shreds all the documents right there, at the drop off location.  Here is all the info,, and it is just $10 per box at most locations.

Why should I choose Shred Bull Mobile Shredding instead of Staples shredding?

Secure and TransparentMobile Shredding FAQ

We encourage our customers to watch their documents being shredded. This transparency ensures that your private information is handled securely and gives you peace of mind.


Shred Bull offers shredding services at a fraction of the cost – around $0.25 per pound compared to Staples' $1.00 per pound. Save money while ensuring your documents are securely destroyed.

What should I do if I can't watch my documents being shredded at a store?

If you can’t watch your confidential documents being shredded. Ask yourself:

  • Do you trust all store employees with your private documents?
  • What happens when the store is closed?
  • What if someone goes into the store and rolls the cart into their vehicle and drives off with it?

The answer is clear: anyone who put their documents in that cart and paid $1.00 per pound could be a candidate for ID Theft!
