With these requests and the then-pending laws regarding information security, Confidential On-Site Paper Shredding (C.O.P.S.) was born in 2003.

Beginning with one truck in 2003, C.O.P.S. has grown into five mobile shredding trucks that shred up to 24,000 pounds per hour and are equipped with enclosed automatic bin tippers in order to eliminate any contact with documents before they are destroyed.
