    Carl from Atlantic Shredding was able to accommodate my last minute scheduling and came over the next day to shred 200 boxes of paper within an hour. He was extremely professional and got the job done quickly and efficiently. There was great communication from Atlantic Shredding throughout the entire process. Will call again.

    I really appreciate Atlantic Shredding and the great job they do! Our pickup was right on time and Carl and his team made quick work of the recyclables. Each time we call with a pick-up request they scheduled us in fast.
