Relying on your personal shredder or using a regular waste disposal service may not ensure that sensitive information is being safely destroyed and can be more expensive than you think. Machines break down. Paper jams. When confidential paper hits the dumpster, what then? XpresShred will safely and securely shred your sensitive and confidential papers.
Limit of three small bags or small boxes of confidential paper. Additional small bags and small boxes are $5 each. Residential only. NO TRASH. Suggested $20 donation to benefit the Cultural Affairs Association.

Manufacturers' recycling programs
major manufacturers of computers and other electronics offer consumers
recycling and reuse alternatives for their products.
Do You Know...
- Check your computer manufacturer’s website for information about its recycling services.
local retailers may act as agents for computer manufacturers'
trade-in/upgrade programs, so check with your retailer before purchasing
a new computer to see if it will accept your old one for recycling. These days, a fee is included in the price of an electronic item so the consumer can bring it back to the place of purchase when the item can no longer be used.
What People Are Saying About this Event?
- If you’re like me, then you're probably in the habit of shredding all those statements, old papers and everything else that you collect but need to protect. I’ve been saving mine up for awhile since my (3rd) shredder quit some time back.
Actually, I’ve been meaning to go get another new one. Well, today I didn’t need to do that. I went over to the shredding and recycling event
held by the Highlands Ranch Community Association over in the parking lot of Kaiser in Highlands Ranch Town Center.
- What a turn out! A long line of vehicles, filled with their papers to shred made their way to the drop off at the shredding trucks. Although there
were plenty of vehicles in line, the lines moved very quickly and orderly. The volunteer staff knew just what to do and everything went smooth. All the papers were dumped into the trash can, loaded to the truck and sent into the shredder. Presto! No more piles of unnecessary papers and my security intact.
- Shredding and recycling are encouraged as a way to to your part to keep the environment clean and keep your security in tact.
The Highlands Ranch Community Association along with the volunteers have done another outstanding job contributing to our community. Keep an eye on the community calendar for future events like this as well as others right here in Highlands Ranch.
