About Us

Our History

Action Shred offers a personal, responsible approach to information destruction backed by a stellar track record of service and security. Why? It all goes back to our roots as a family-owned and operated business.

Action Shred is owned by brothers Joel and Craig Litman. Our parent company, Texas Recycling/Surplus, Inc., has been serving the Dallas / Fort Worth area since 1992.

In 2003, the Litman family saw a need for secure, dependable information destruction in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. They launched Action Shred of Texas and hired a team of trusted employees, many of whom have worked with the family at Texas Recycling for years.

With the family name attached to the company’s successful operations, the Litmans feel strongly that customer service should be prompt and personal. We don’t use voicemail, which means a dedicated staff member anxious to help you will answer your phone call. Plus, we do everything possible to schedule our routes to make our service as convenient as possible for our customers.

Best Practices

Our best set practices impact every internal process at our facility and are adhered to without excuse. In order to maintain our NAID AAA certification, we are audited every year by a third-party security professional that examines our daily operations from top to bottom.

The audit insures we meet the certification standards for facility-based shredding in areas such as operational security, employee hiring and screening, the actual destruction process, responsible disposal, insurance and so much more.

Security protocols we follow at Action Shred include:

  • Stringent hiring guidelines including comprehensive background checks
  • Pre-employment drug screens and random drug testing during employment
  • Confidentiality agreements signed upon hire
  • Restricted access facility with authorized employees only
  • 24/7 CCTV monitoring with a video history of plant activity for 90 days
  • ID badges worn by all employees involved in the shredding processes
  • Nondescript building to safeguard the nature of our business
