Commercial Recycling Programs in Dana Point, CA*

Ready to go green? The Paper Depot has convenient, full-service recycling programs to suit organizations and businesses of all sizes in Dana Point.

Paper recycling will help your Dana Point business save money by lowering disposal costs. For large paper producers, the value of your paper may even earn you free material pickups and possibly cash rebates. As an added bonus, implementing a recycling program not only helps the environment, but also improves the internal and external perception of your company.

The Paper Depot handles all volumes, varieties and grades of paper, including newspaper, cardboard, coated book stock, envelopes, copy paper, white paper, colored paper, mixed paper, junk mail, printer waste, and much more. We can even accept paper with staples, paper clips, and rubber bands. Removing these items and sorting your papers can yield a higher rebate, but you would need to exceed a set amount and make sure that this would really be worth the effort. Our representatives explore all of these options with you during their free onsite analysis and help design a program that will be in your best interests.

Contact us today to schedule your complimentary paper recycling analysis. We'll assess your recycling needs, identify all of your recyclable paper items, and determine how many and what size recycling bins you'll need. We can even come out to your facility and educate your employees of your new program. Additionally, we can respond to any urgent requests if you ever experience a larger than normal paper volume, and can adjust your program if your paper volume significantly decreases or increases.

Commercial Document Destruction Programs in Dana Point, CA

Since 1981, The Paper Depot has developed comprehensive and affordable document destruction programs for thousands of businesses and organizations in and around Dana Point. Our secure and efficient on-site and off-site shredding processes help law firms, government agencies, hospitals, educational institutions, banks, accounting firms, nonprofits, and corporations protect their confidential and sensitive information as well as the privacy of their customers. We not only provide safe destruction of paper and media, such as hard drives, CDs and DVDs, but also provide our Dana Point clients with advice on proper document handling, record retention guidelines, and privacy laws and regulations.

Our Shredding Process for Sensitive & Confidential Data in Dana Point

We carefully manage every aspect of our document destruction process, starting with providing our Dana Point clients with locked, slotted shred containers to keep their sensitive papers secure between pickups. During our assessment, we determine how many containers you need and how frequently we should pick up these containers for shredding. Our shredding service is available on an as-needed or regularly scheduled basis. When it is time for a visit, your secure containers are retrieved and transported by our uniformed, and heavily screened employees to the shredder of your choice.

We can provide you with onsite or offsite shredding. On-site shredding is accomplished using a state-of-the-art mobile shred truck and off-site shredding uses a secure truck to transport your containers to our commercial shredding facility in Orange. In both scenarios, throughout every step of the process, we keep your sensitive documents safe and secure. Even after your documents are shredded, we further dilute them with non-sensitive paper before putting them into bales and delivering them via locked sealed trailers to one of paper mills we work with.

Dana Point clients are welcome to witness our shredding process whether it takes place on-site or off, and obtain a signed and dated certificate of destruction upon request. Call us today at (800) 417-6479 to learn more.


The Paper Depot is a licensed paper shredding company serving the Dana Point area. We are a member of the NAID® (National Association for Information Destruction), and stay up-to-date on all regulations, acts, and laws related to document retention, data protection, and information destruction. Our shredding practices are in complete compliance with all Federal, state and local laws, including FACTA, HIPAA, and Gramm-Leach-Bliley.

On-Site Document Destruction in Dana Point, CA

With on-site destruction, when scheduled, our screened and uniformed employees bring our shredding truck to your Dana Point office and collect all of your filled shred containers. They are then taken outside and deposited directly into the truck for immediate destruction, providing you with the opportunity to witness the entire shredding process without having to come to our facility.

Off-Site Document Destruction for Dana Point, CA Businesses

A more cost-effective yet equally secure option is our off-site destruction service. We still come to your Dana Point location to retrieve your filled and locked shred containers and safely transport them to our commercial shredding facility in Orange. Your containers stay locked until they are emptied by a mechanical arm into our commercial shredder. No one ever handles your documents as the containers are unlocked directly above the mouth of our shredder, and we monitor our staff and facility 24 hours a day with motion-activated video surveillance. All shredded paper is then commingled with huge quantities of recycled paper for dilution before being baled and transported in secure containers to trusted paper mills for recycling.
