    Prompt service, professional young man came and gathered my things, which were not nearly as much to destroy as I had estimated, … More but nonetheless, Shred Ace did what needed to be done, and got rid of a full container, which I could never have lifted nor gotten to a dump, in a matter of minutes. Very courteous young man showed me how to calculate what I need to be destroying. I highly recommend this service.
