The importance of properly destroying all material that contains personal or confidential information has never been greater. Identity theft in Canada is growing at an unprecedented rate. Items such as company information, customer information, employee information, business and personal communication, old contracts, etc. might no longer be useful, but they do contain important personal and business information that can be easily used against you in the wrong hands. That is why you need to dispose of them properly. At Western Archives, we provide efficient and reliable mobile paper shredding services in Barrhead, Alberta, in a number of cost effective ways.
We offer a wide range of shredding services that can be tailored according to your requirements. You can choose between automatic scheduled service, one-time purge or recurring scheduled purge, or we even offer drop off services at our secure facility. In addition, we offer non-paper destruction involving hard drives and different storage media.
Most of our clients prefer our secure, scheduled onsite shredding process to ensure all documents are properly destroyed. It provides you with the highest level of security for you and your business. Here's what we can do for you:

Did you know that we've NEVER taken paper to the dump? Seriously — we recycle 100% of everything we shred!
According to the EPA, for every tree saved due to recycling shredded paper (200lbs of paper), you also reduce consumption of approximately 241.2 kwh of energy, 22.35 gallons of oil, 1558 liters of water, 3.7 pounds of air pollution, and 5.67 cubic feet of landfill materials.
We use collection equipment built for eco-friendly applications. Our secure consoles all comply with LEED and CARB II regulations, while all our collection bins are fully recyclable and meet A.N.S.I. and EN-840 standards.
