Meet Our Team

Action Shred is owned by brothers Craig Litman (left) and Joel Litman (right).

With the family name attached to the company’s successful operations, the Litmans feel strongly that customer service should be prompt and personal.

Craig Litman
Co-owner

A true sportsman at heart, Craig Litman always goes the extra mile to make his customers happy. As co-owner of Action Shred and Texas Recycling Surplus, Inc., Craig puts his strong motivational skills and formal training as a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) to good use.

After graduating from UT Austin, for several years Craig had a highly successful career in the accounting and tax field before joining his father and brother Joel at Daltex Waste Material Co. in the late 1980s.

In addition to using his accounting expertise, Craig is involved in overseeing all aspects of the business including sales, safety, marketing, logistics, business strategy and production.

Joel Litman
Co-owner

A graduate of the University of Missouri School of Journalism, Joel Litman has been in the recycling industry since 1984. He got his start in the business working with his father at Daltex Waste Material Co.

Joel founded Action Shred with his brother Craig in 2003. Joel and Craig are also the co-owners of Texas Recycling Surplus, Inc.

Joel focuses on his customers’ needs and doesn’t rely on machines, technology or computers to forge relationships. His early work in the public relations and advertising industry taught him the importance of adding a personal approach to business relationships—something he continues to believe in strongly today.
