Our Product Destruction services are the most secure, cost-effective, and convenient way to handle excess or unsellable inventory.
Total Brand Protection
Our secure destruction product destruction services are geared toward brand protection and compliance. When manufacturers need to keep out-of-specification items away from the marketplace, we shred, crush, or slice them by the truckload.
Why Product Destruction?
Packaged Food Recycling
We work to ensure that food doesn’t go to waste. We can handle virtually any quantity.
When suppliers send us their contaminated food products, we separate the food from the packaging, reclaim the nutrients, bio-digest the liquids, compost the fibers, and recycle the packaging.Contact Us
