What do you do with my stuff?

We disassemble and break it into small pieces here in our secure Burnsville facility. We then shred the hard drives contained inside your electronics with our industrial-grade hard drive shredder. We then transport the pieces to our trusted, local recycling partner to be processed and eventually made into new electronics and other products.

These guys are great. Flexible schedule when needed and do a great job

These guys are awesome! I searched the list for on-site paper shredding services, as I am not comfortable leaving sensitive information to be shredded "later" at another location!

Picked this company as they have great reviews and I like to support a vet-owned company. Scheduling was easy - I emailed when I was ready to shred, Dave called right back to schedule and they were out there on the date I selected. He called about an hour before our appointment to let me know he was on his way, and showed up when promised. Brought a big wheeled container to my garage, he dumped the papers in and shredded them right then and there. Even let me watch as it went through on the video monitor, which was pretty cool. Just a super nice guy, listening to him talk it is clear he loves his country and his family! I would be completely comfortable having him back to do more work even if I was home alone, he was an absolute class act.


Medina, Minnesota

Excellent from start to finish. Got a live person to take my call, a return call to schedule an appointment followed very quickly. A convenient appointment was made with a very short time. An advanced call specifying arrival occurred, with arrival, as anticipated. Dave was extremely friendly and very efficient. Shredding done on site, rather than being hauled to another location, which I did not want from other services. Cost was less than expected, and service exceeded my expectations. Would only use this company for this type of service in the future.

They were on time, efficient, pleasant, and honest. A pleasure to do business with them. I watched the whole procedure, and chatted with them as the shedding continued. This was an Angie's List deal purchase, and everything went extremely well. Very happy with the service, and definitely would use them again

Lkaeville, Minnesota

We've used Veteran Shredding a couple of times for a one time purge of records at our Shakopee office. The price is fair. The process is easy and the service is quick and efficient. Really a great local business.


Shakopee, Minneapolis

We found Veteran Shredding through the organizer we hired for our move. Veteran shredding was not only reasonably priced, but they were available to come when we wanted them. What I liked best was Dave's friendly manner when he picked up our piles to shred.



We've used Veteran Shredding for a one time purge of decades worth of sensitive records at our Roseville, Minnesota home. The shredding was done onsite. The price is fair in comparison to UPS bin service. The process is fascinating and easy, and the service is quick and efficient. This is a great local business!



Very pleased with Veteran Shredding's service. We were on a mission to get rid of all old tax returns, etc. and were drowning in paper! I called and they were at my garage in less than a half an hour. Reasonable price, friendly, competent and now I have a clean garage!


Prior Lake, Minnesota

I have used Veteran in the past and will use them in the future great service, personable and friendly.



Great experience working with Veteran Shredding! Highly recommend to anyone needing shredding services.
