Company Summary

Shred Spot is developing a self-service paper shredding kiosk that will be placed in office buildings and other large facilities. We also currently provide business and residential document destruction and paper recycling drop-off and pickup service via a plant-based operation in Northbrook, IL. The plan is to deploy 100+ kiosks in the Chicago area, then expand to 5-10 markets with 1,000 kiosks within 5 years. Our plan is easily scalable.
