A-1 Shredding expands, offers service in San Juans

Bellingham-based mobile shredding company A-1 Shredding, Inc., has added San Juan and Orcas islands to its scheduled pickup service.

A-1 Shredding was founded in Bellingham in 2007 by George and Cindy Myiow and has already expanded its coverage area to Whatcom, Skagit, Island and Snohomish counties. The company is bonded and insured. It offers on-site shredding at homes and offices, or it can haul your papers and documents to its secure Bellingham plant for shredding and disposal.

“Professional shredding protects the records of your customers, clients, associates, and employees by safeguarding their sensitive information,” said co-owner Cindy Myiow. “Shredding and recycling will permanently destroy the information, ensuring businesses comply with laws and protecting you, your employees, and your clients.”

Shredding and recycling documents also is good for the environment, Myiow said. Every 2,000 pounds of recycled paper can save 17 trees, 380 gallons of oil, three cubic yards of landfill space, 4,000 kilowatts of energy, and 7,000 gallons of water.
