Secure Document Destruction

If you need to destroy any sensitive documents, our Secure Document Destruction Service could be just what you need! Here are some benefits of our service:

  • Once the material is in our possession it will be kept in a locked, closed-body truck at all times. It will then be hand-fed into the shredder.

  • Your documents will be turned into building materials, locally here in Spokane County.
  • Anyone handling the material will have had a background check done on them.

  • This service is available for you to bring material in, or we can pick up your documents at your location.  
  • If you bring in your documents to our location, our charge is 15 cents per pound, with a $10 minimum charge.  
  • If you are interested in our pickup service, please see below.

Please remove the following from your documents, as they cannot go through the shredder, or be recycled into building materials:

  • Rubber bands
  • Metal bigger than a small paper clip or staple
  • Fastener or medical file folders - see picture below
  • Black binder clips
  • Plastics
  • Plastic-coated paper
  • Foil, or foil-coated paper
  • Carbon paper
  • Photos
  • Paper plates
  • Napkins
  • Paper towels
  • Tissue (Kleenex, etc)
  • Garbage

Please note:

Staples, small paper clips, and window envelopes are ok.

Pickup Service

Earthworks would provide lockable containers, which are on wheels and have a slot on top.  Every time we came to pick up your material, we would take the full bin and exchange it for an empty container, which we would lock, if you haven't already locked it. 

If you wanted to have a bin at your location year-round, instead of charging a monthly rental fee on our container, we just require a once every other month pickup of the container, at minimum.

If this was a one-time only service, we would just load your material into a container, lock it, and haul it away. You can also have the bin at your location for a small time period, and we can pick it up later.  If you have your documents in boxes, we can simply haul the boxes away and keep them secure at our location.

Typical Rates per Pickup:

One 65 Gallon Locking Container  $32.50 per bin

These fastener/medical file folders can be included, but the metal fastener needs to be removed.
