About Us

Founded in April of 2016 by Eric Runde and Chris Runde. We are family owned and operating in St Augustine Florida; and serve St Johns County with pride. Eric Runde has been in the recycling industry for over 10 years. He is founder of NACK Enterprises and is a plastics broker with clients from the midwest to China. Chris Runde has over 10 years experience in the IT industry. While working in closely with medical professionals in IT, Chris saw the opportunity for document destruction services and decided to follow his father’s footsteps in the recycling industry.

Starting with humble beginnings, Eric and Chris obtained a used mobile paper shredding truck and gave it a facelift and also overhauled the onboard industrial shredder. Equipped with two bright entrepreneurial minds, and the drive to succeed, we opened up shop right here in St Augustine. We are the first and only company based in St Augustine that provides on-site paper shredding and document destruction services. We are members of the St Johns County Chamber of Commerce, and we keep as much business as we can local, and urge you to do the same.

Our competition is mainly in Jacksonville and they typically charge minimums over $100 just to come down and shred. Since we’re local we can keeps prices down and be more flexible. Whether your business needs a one-time purge during tax season, or regular pickups with secure bin rentals, we have a service level to fit your needs.Not only will we will exceed your paper shredding needs at every level, we strive to provide the most competitive rates available in today’s market.
