Do you have tax documents, old invoices, or financial statements that need to be destroyed properly? PCDC is bonded to shred confidential documents for your business or home at the cost of .40 cents a pound. When you hire us to shred your documents you are providing work for the intellectually disabled in our area. If you shred your own documents you can drop off that shredded paper to us to be recycled. For information on this and other recycle questions call Carla at 479-394-2671.
