Can we view the destruction?

WestRock's free confidential document destruction service is a great alternative to traditional paper shredding. Your sensitive documents are immediately destroyed and recycled using a machine called a "Hydrapulper". Once destroyed, the paper fibers are recycled in our paper mill and used in the manufacture of the hard cover portion of text books. 

Only for businesses and municipalities - upon special request.

Do staples and paperclips need to be removed?
