Cost Comparison

Is a paper shredding service really worth it? Compare the costs and see for yourself.

Let's assume you have just one employee shredding for only 15 minutes per day, and you purchase only one shredder per year for $100. Your monthly and yearly savings are significant with Sierra Shred with one secured console serviced monthly at just $45! And the savings are even greater the more volume you have!  See for yourself...
