Introducing Residential Document Destruction

Safely destroy the documents you’ve been hanging on to for far too long. Iron Mountain’s trusted service, used by businesses and corporations, is now available for you at home. See if we pick up in your area.

You handle hundreds of documents containing sensitive and private information—tax records, contracts, invoices, healthcare information and insurance documents, to name just a few. What happens when they’re no longer of use? You can’t just throw them away; identity thieves and dumpster divers are always on the lookout for trash cans and recycle bins full of personal identifiable information.

With Iron Mountain’s ShredReady™ program, you can safely and cost-effectively destroy paper documents according to the same secure chain of custody and shredding processes used for our enterprise business customers.  Simply order a pre-paid secure shred box directly from Iron Mountain, fill it, ship it, and we’ll shred it at a secure Shred Facility. 

Another option is to drop off your documents at one of our many partner locations where they will be secured in one of our locked containers and an Iron Mountain employees will pick up the closed container and bring it to one of our secure shredding facilities.
