Frequently Asked Questions


What is the cost for KMX Mobile Security Shredding's service?

For a one-time purge service, the two main factors that will determine your cost are the amount of paper you need shredded and how quickly you need service. If you are interested in scheduled service the two factors that determine the cost are the number of collection bins at your facility, and the service interval (monthly, weekly, etc.).

What is on-site shredding?

On-site shredding is a premium service, giving you the highest level of security for your document shredding program. With this method, KMX Mobile Security Shredding sends a specialized mobile paper shredding truck to your location to perform the shredding. You can visually verify the entire process and have the peace of mind knowing that all of your paper is totally destroyed when we pull away from your parking lot.

What type of shredding process is used by KMX Mobile Security Shredding?

KMX Shredding uses a Pierce-and-Tear shredding system. This system tears the paper at the fiber instead of cutting it, which results in a random and more secure shred size than standard strip-cut shredders.

Should I remove staples, paperclips, or binder clips?

No, you do not have to remove staples, paperclips, or binder clips from your paper before shredding. We can also shred the metal tabs on file folders.

What should I be shredding?

We encourage you to shred all paper leaving your facility. It is the only way to protect your organization from identity theft and corporate espionage. It improves your ability to comply with the numerous laws and regulations covering information security as well. The following list includes several types of information that should be shredded:
  • Banking information
  • Social Security numbers
  • Checks
  • Credit card receipts
  • Customer names & addresses
