Secure Shred


We collect, protect, and destroy confidential records, computer printouts, files and folders, as well as paper of all kinds. Our secure, off-site document destruction service provides peace of mind for businesses while providing jobs and helping our environment.

Customers are provided secure containers for their confidential materials. All containers use locks to ensure documents cannot be removed without a key. Goodwill staff pick up the containers and transport them back to our secure Adrian location and shredded with highly efficient commercial paper shredders within 72 hours. (within 15 days for a large purge).

Using Goodwill’s secure document destruction service provides jobs for people facing barriers to employment. It also helps to reduce landfill because we compact, bale, and ship all shredded material to be recycled into paper products.

Please consider Goodwill for your document destruction needs.

**We will now pick up your magazines, phone directories, and newsprint along with your secure shred for FREE!
