Where to take your shredding

Here in Montgomery County, Maryland we’ve enjoyed unlimited free shredding for years with an organization that recently shut its doors.  We’re left to hold our shredding until a random community shred even pops up, shred it ourselves, or pay a fee.  I recently pulled together this list of shredding resources for a client.  These familiar retailers offer shredding services by the pound, though only the FedEx site listed their price: $.99/lb.

Links to shredding services pages:

UPS stores
FedEx stores
Staples
Office Depot

I’m aware that many towns and counties hold monthly shred events, but please share in the comments if you have any other suggestions for unloading shredding efficiently and inexpensively!
