The Express Lane
The express lane is a faster alternative where citizens of Austin and the surrounding communities can drop off their personal confidential records to be placed in bins on a truck that will be driven back to the secured and bonded shred vendors' facilities to be shred within 72 hours.
The only difference between the express lane and the on-site shredding option is that express lane items are not shred on-site but will be securely transported to the shred vendor facility within 72 hours. Both options ensure the security and protection of your documents as all of our vendors are insured and bonded professionals that provide these services to hospitals, banks and the government offices around our community.
Note: This option is not applicable for all Shred Day events.
