The Paper Depot Shredding Process

We thoughtfully manage every aspect of our shredding process, starting with providing our Rancho Santa Margarita clients with locked, slotted shred containers to keep their sensitive papers secure between pickups. During our assessment, we determine how frequent these pickups should be; we can provide as-needed, monthly, weekly, or daily service. When it is time for us to visit, our uniformed, and heavily screened employees will collect your secure containers and transport them to one of our shredders.

We have a state-of-the-art mobile shred truck for on-site shredding and commercial shredders at our facility for off-site shredding. In both scenarios, we keep your sensitive documents secure and safe; recycle 100% of all shredded paper; and issue a signed and dated certificate of destruction for your records at your request. Additionally, Rancho Santa Margarita clients are welcome to witness our shredding process whether it takes place on-site or off.

On-Site Document Destruction

With on-site destruction, when scheduled, our screened and uniformed employees bring our shredding truck to your Rancho Santa Margarita 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

A more cost-effective yet equally secure option is our off-site destruction service. We still come to your Rancho Santa Margarita 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.


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