Please note that these Shred-a-thons may only be scheduled by the likes of Chicago alderman, state representatives, or local police and fire departments. These are special community shredding events for Chicagoland residents only. These events are free to the public.  If you are a qualified office and have an interest in hosting one of these free paper shredding events, or if you have any additional questions about our shred-a-thons, please call 773-340-4706.

Midway also offers discounted self drop-off paper shredding services at our Midway Service Center location, 2717 W Chicago Avenue, Chicago, IL 60622.  Our Service Center stocks a full supply of packing and moving materials and we also offer moving and storage estimates and services onsite.  Parking is available, and you will be personally assisted by our friendly and caring staff.  We often have special offers, especially when combining your paper shredding with a moving, storage, or material purchase.  Occasionally, we sponsor special live shredding events at the Service Center. Although these live paper shredding events are not free, we can securely shred your documents at rates lower than any other professional and licensed document destruction company.  To talk to one of our representatives at our Midway Service Center, please call 773-340-4710.
