Business Description: Shred-it®, founded in 1988, is a world leading on site document destruction company. Shred-It Akron opened in 2001 and has been shredding for Northeast Ohio businesses and residents continuously since that time. It is locally owned and operated by Alex Piteo with an office in Twinsburg, Ohio. Shred-it's success has been built on the strength of its people and commitment to total customer satisfaction. Alex and his team are active members of the Northeast Ohio community. They have served as Board members and past Presidents on several area Chambers of Commerce. In addition, they have been active in fundraising efforts for several non-profit organizations. Shred-it Akron has the largest fleet of mobile shredding trucks in the Akron/Canton area. In addition, they have a fleet of box trucks and vans for pick-up of any quantity of paper. They have also shredded clothes, caps, cups, DVD, CD, and VCR media. Thousands of tons of paper and cardboard are recycled each year. Shred-it Akron also destroys and recycles electronic waste including computer hard drives and monitors. This can be done in your home or at their video monitored and access controlled facility in Twinsburg. Watch How The Shred-it Document Destruction Process Works Why Introduce Drop Off Locations? The risk of identity theft has prevented most people and businesses from tossing personal or client information into the trash. The problem now lies with what to do with all this material. Home shredders are costly to purchase, maintain, and are not designed to handle the amount of paper an average person, family, or small business has to shred. Most persons soon find out that shredding with home shredders is slow, boring, and very messy. Shred-It Akron understands this and wants to provide an easy and cost-effective solution for the destruction of sensitive information to all Northeast Ohio residences and small businesses. Drop off your material to be shredded at any one of our Authorized Drop off Locations. You may find our locations by typing in your zip code on the home page. The same process and level of security is offered through these Authorized Drop off Locations as we offer banks, hospitals, and government agencies.
