Confidential Destruction


Our Grand Rapids location became the first NAID-certified company in Michigan in 2002 and has maintained a perfect record of passing all annual and unannounced audits. This gives you the assurance that we adhere to all HIPAA and other industry regulations.


Rapid Shred's custom-built facility was designed specifically for the security and operational needs of document destruction. It houses some of the industry's most sophisticated shredders and pulverizers, for both paper and non-paper materials. 


In addition to picking up your material and bringing it to our plant for destruction, we also offer mobile shredding in our state-of-the art trucks so that you can witness the destruction right at your location. 

Options for all of your shredding needs

• Off-site or on-site shredding: We can pick up your materials and transport them back to our secure facility, or we can shred at your location with one of our mobile shredding trucks.

• One-time service: We offer one-time shredding services for office clean-ups and document purging.

• Drop off: Only have a few bags or boxes of materials to shred? You are welcome to drop your materials off at our facility during normal business hours.

• Record storage & management: Have documents that need to be stored today, but shredded in the future? Our record storage offering can help.

Our Grand Rapids facility is NAID-certified. In fact, it was the first company in Michigan to be NAID-certified in 2002 and has successfully passed each annual inspection to retain our AAA certification for off-site (plant-based), on-site (mobile), micro-media pulverization and hard drive destruction.

We have a variety of shredding containers to meet your specific needs, from high-capacity wheeled shredding carts for larger volumes to our wooden consoles which fit your office decor. Learn more about our shredding containers.
