"This is a great place. Like the other posts on Yelp, it was great, clean, fast service. Didn't know they did other recycling or I would of brought more. I looked at there website first before I yelped. Definitely recommend this place. The best part is you get to watch them shred your stuff and nothings left is behind."
"Great guy doing the shredding. Turns out: he is the owner! The customer service experience made my day. Cheerful, fast and a great value. It would have taken me a week to shred my stuff with my home shredder. I was in and out in 5 minutes !!!"
"Easy to get to on Eastshore Hwy between Gilman and University in Berkeley. The shredding is done in front of you. Banker's Boxes are dumped into shredder and you can take the empties home. Had a couple of boxes part full so I was charged for fewer boxes. Very accommodating and fast service. No appointment needed."
I've had a bunch of mail, paper bank statements, credit card offers, etc. accumulated in the past few years. I've recently moved and had a small shopping bag of paper to be shredded. Very easy process, it's shredded in front of you and you pay at the desk after. Everything is pretty straight-forward and fast. For a small shopping bag of paper it was $3.50. A standard banker box is about $8 and it goes up from there. Definitely will come back when I need to save some time from shredding. Definitely, recommend for big loads of paper recycling. They also do old TVs, computers, cellphones and the works.
Fast, friendly service. A magic magnet in the machine pulls out paper clips and hanging file hangers. I highly recommend this place. Don't be deterred by the barrier at the Eastshore Highway/ Page Street intersection (sewer work for several more months). Keep going north to Gilman, turn right, turn right again on Second Street, and proceed to Page. They'll give you a chocolate coin for your troubles!
Very nice folks, quick service, even helped me find my lost keys (not shredded, thank goodness). I will definitely use them again!
You know, shredding is not the most exciting thing in the world and you wouldn't imagine there's much to choose from when picking where to go. But the guys who work here are so nice, polite and professional that the whole thing just becomes a breeze. I wouldn't go anywhere else. They get the job done, fast. It's been like that every single time of the several times I've been there. Berkeley Shreds - I hope you know you've got some great employees there!
This place is awesome! Shred right in front of you! Destroy old hard drives! Recycle your stuff to be made into new products ...good for environment! Another way to be GREEN!
