Our Remarkable Recovery Story!!
I wanted to share a photo of our building after the collapse on February 4th. As you can imagine this was the worst disaster in Infoshred’s history and was devastating to Jack and I, our employees, customers, and vendors. We are thankful that no one was injured or killed and that we were able to recover all of our customers records. The last four months have tested both our staff and ourselves. We have learned that together with the support of our customers we can survive.
The rebuilding process is currently underway. We are days away from completing the demolition and the new building will begin arriving on June 20th. We expect construction to be completed by the fall.
Throughout this difficult time we have kept our clients best interests at the forefront and are proud of what we have accomplished. Infoshred is committed to rebuilding our records storage business and we will emerge from this disaster better than ever. The next 6 months will open a new chapter in our history and we will keep you informed of our progress.
Thank you for all your patience and support.
Infoshred – No Fuel Surcharge
Recently many of our competitors have instituted fuel surcharges to cover rising fuel costs. In this uncertain economy we are all concerned with rising costs but Infoshred will NOT be adding a fuel surcharge to your bill. We value our customers and believe that honoring our commitment to a fixed price during the term of your service agreement is important. This is just another way for us to continue being a valued partner to you, our customers.

ShredFest Raises Funds for AmeriCares
On May 21, Infoshred donated time and on-site shredding trucks for the annual ShredFest sponsored by the Fairfield County Medical Association for the physician community. Since 2008, almost 100 medical practices have taken advantage of the low cost service to properly dispose of nearly 1500 boxes of medical and business records. The events have raised nearly $7,000 for the three AmeriCares Free Clinics in Fairfield County – Bridgeport, Danbury and Norwalk.
