Arc Gateway's secure shredding services were funded through an Impact 100 grant  to provide secure document shredding. Shredding services are available to businesses and individuals with no minimum pound requirement.


Not only does this program provide jobs for people with developmental disabilities while providing a valuable service designed to safeguard identities and confidential information, it also has environmental benefits too. Instead of throwing away pounds and pounds of papers, the shredded materials are sold to business partners to be recycled. In fact, some of the shredded materials will ultimately become ceiling tiles, through a partnership with Armstrong World Industries!


Drop-Off Services

Bring your documents to the rear entrance of the Pollak Training Center located at 1000 East Fairfield Drive. Your materials will be weighed and you will be provided with an invoice for destroying the material based on $10 for the first 50 lbs. and $0.15 for each pound thereafter. Upon completion of service, a Certificate of Destruction will be mailed to you.



Pick-Up Services

To arrange pick-up from your office or residence, call 850-438-5577.

Materials will be transported to our facility in a locked vehicle. There is a $20 fee for each local area trip ($25 for outlying areas). The minimum charge is $30 for up to 50 lbs. Each additional pound is $0.15. Upon completion of service, a Certificate of Destruction and invoice will be mailed to you.


Documents must be boxed or bagged in heavy duty bags for pick-up.


About the Process

Your materials will be shredded with a cross cut blade which produces 1/4 by 17/8 shreds, complying with security level 3 shredding standards. All shredding is performed in a secured area which is video monitored 24/7. All individuals handling materials have been carefully screened and have signed a confidentiality agreement. Once shredded, material is boxed and recycled.


You do not need to remove staples, paper clips or binder clips. All file folders, envelopes, computer printouts, etc. can be shredded. Please do not include contaminants such as plastics, x-rays, CDs, disks, carbon and microfilm. These materials can be shredded but must be separate from paper. The fee for destroying a standard storage box of contaminants is $30.



Arc Gateway will be happy to set up an account for you with an approved credit application on file. To set up an account, please call 850-438-5577.
