Q: Documents for Shredding - Where do I take them?

We accept documents to be shredded at our Center for Hard to Recycle Materials (CHaRM) at 1005 College Avenue. Please visit accgov.com/charm for facility hours, pricing, and material details.

To cover our costs of processing, we do charge a fee of $2 per bankers box (or equivalent size) for document shredding. We charge an additional facility fee of $3 per visit for ACC customers and $8 per visit for out of county. If you have a different size container, box or bag, we will charge accordingly based on the estimated size, relative to a bankers box.

At the CHaRM, your documents will be placed in a locked roll cart in the facility, where they will be collected and shredded on site by Lindsay Group document destruction company. They then bring the shredded paper material to our recycling facility for processing, baling, and shipment to the paper market to be recycled into new products.

If you have further questions, please email recycle@accgov.com or call 706-613-3501 x8.
