At each event, consumers are invited to bring their unwanted personal documents and records to be safely and privately cross -shredded.

Each mobile truck has a 12,500 pound capacity and comes equipped with video monitoring to view the actual shredding process.

  • Single Family Homes = $251.45

Both prices include tax.

If you wish to have the service provided please complete the request form and submit with payment to the office. Please be aware the aeration of the lawn will create small plugs of soil which will be visible on the surface of your lawn for a couple of weeks before they break down.

The service will start in September. Homeowners will be required to place irrigation flags by each of the sprinkler heads to prevent damage. The flags will be provided by the Management Office. Stop by the office at your convenience to pick up your flags.
