Protect-N-Shred is a professional shredding company and the premier, locally owned, mobile shredding company based in the Mahoning Valley. We are a fully-licensed, bonded and insured company that provides outstanding customer service while maintaining the highest degree of confidentiality and security. As a NAID (National Association for Information Destruction) member, our Confidential Destruction Specialists are thoroughly background checked, drug screened and highly trained to ensure the privacy of our clients' information. We maintain a secure chain of custody from the moment we take possession of the sensitive information through the entire destruction process. Our company was built on the principle of giving local businesses a fast response to their shredding needs at a fair price with no hidden fees. We are here to support our clients in Northeast Ohio and Western Pennsylvania with a convenient and reliable service with minimal interruption to their normal business day.

Why Shred

  • Shredding helps prevent identity theft and safeguards your customers’ privacy and confidential information. 
  • Shredding protects your organization by securing company proprietary information, employee records and guarding against hefty fines for insecure record disposal.
  • Regulations such as HIPAA, FACTA and GLB require compliance to protect and properly dispose of certain kinds of private information. 
  • Shredding is the most secure and cost-effective means of document destruction.  Outsourcing to a professional shredding company saves time and money in the office and supports your security program with a signed certificate of destruction after every shred job.
  • Shredding is an environmentally-friendly means of information destruction because all our shredding material is recycled.

Commercial Shredding

Protect-N-Shred is a mobile shredding company that uses the most technologically advanced equipment in the industry. Our policy is to shred all of our clients' material on site at their place of business or record storage location. Our customers have the opportunity to see their confidential information destroyed in front of their eyes. We can also provide off-site shred services when that better suits our client's needs. We provide a customized monthly or scheduled shredding service and a one-time purge service. Other services that we offer include: electronic media and hard drive destruction, X-ray destruction, document imaging and document storage.

“We have used Protect-N-Shred for several years now. An insurance agency is information driven and the vast majority of that information falls under Protected Heath Information and is governed by HIPAA laws. These laws are very specific and the penalties are high. An agent in Cleveland was fined $10,000 for failure to comply in 2011. Protect-N-Shred is a vital part of our compliance. Their locked container in our office, the shredding and Certificate of Destruction are key components when we are audited for HIPAA compliance.”

Think Green, Recycle!

100% of our shredded material is sent to a paper mill for recycling. It is then pulped and bleached and later used for making paper products such as cereal boxes, tissues, and toilet paper. One ton of recycled paper saves: 17 trees, 7,000 gallons of water, 380 gallons of oil, 4,100 kilowatts of energy and 3.3 cubic yards of landfill space. We're committed to "saving the world, one tree at a time."
