  • 32 Gallon rolling locked bins are provided for document shredding on a continuous or short term use basis.
  • 1 yard rolling tip bins are for short term use only for purging large amounts of material at a time.
  • Archive boxes must be securely taped closed. All hanging files and large metal clips must be removed prior to requesting a pickup.

Electronic Media
