Shred Days

Urban Impact encourages you to bring by your boxes of files and paperwork for secure, confidential, on-site shredding right before your eyes. You’ll be able to safely and cost-effectively destroy unnecessary documents.

Have your old tax records, bills, bank statements and other confidential documents shredded and recycled.

What options does Urban Impact provide for document destruction?

Urban Impact provides two shred options where you can watch your material being destroyed:

Option 1: On Site Shredding

We can send our OnSite shred truck to your location for a one time shred. The material does not leave your site unshredded. The driver will empty the boxes and weigh and shred all the contents, prongs and clips and staples, CDs, hard drives, and floppy discs included; the boxes are not weighed and are left for re-use or recycle. We assume there are no stairs and the driver can park quite close to where the boxes are.

Please contact Customer Service at 604-273-0089 ext. 1 for Vancouver & Lower Mainland or 403-214-7600 for Calgary if you have any additional questions or to book the shred service. 

Option 2: Urban Impact Shred Day

Alternatively, you can deliver your materials for shredding to Urban Impact’s Shred Day.  Shred Days are a convenient way to destroy your unnecessary documents and materials right before your eyes.  Please see further information on our Shred Day locations and dates below.
When you arrive at a Shred Day location, an Urban Impact staff member will assist you in unloading your vehicle and taking your documents and materials to the Shredding truck for destruction.  You can leave your cardboard boxes with us, or of course you are welcome to retain them.  The Urban Impact staff member will help you unload your materials, they will weigh the materials for shredding and they will ensure that all materials are loaded into the truck for immediate destruction.  A receipt indicating the weight of the material and the cost of the shredding will be provided.

Option 3: Community Shred Days

Urban Impact is proud to partner with a number of organizations to help them to host community Shred Days!  (Please note, the Shred Days events are led and organized by the Financial Institution or Not-for-Profit organization.  Urban Impact provides our mobile truck for the onsite Shred Days and we also provide a driver. Shred Days event organizers may change the date or time of the event.  Please check our website to make sure the event is taking place.). Learn more about community shred days
