Highland Recycling and Shredding owner Luke Harris has sold the confidential-shredding division of the business to Iron Mountain Secure Shredding Inc.
The sale was effective Nov. 1, and Iron Mountain will begin servicing confidential-shredding customers starting Dec. 1.
Iron Mountain is a global business dedicated to storing, protecting and managing information and assets.
Highland Recycling and Shredding will be changing its corporate name to Highland Recycling Services and focusing on recycling, scrap metal purchasing and junk relief businesses.
Harris (shown) said the move enables his company to strengthening of its existing business offerings as well as expand into a new market providing customers recycling options for businesses and homes. The new business division, HRS Junk Relief, will offer removal of unwanted items such as furniture, equipment, appliances or other miscellaneous items that can be picked up at homes, apartments or offices and recycled if possible.
Harris said he appreciates the confidential-shredding customers who have trusted his company over the last 20 years and believes Iron Mountain will carry on that tradition.
“Our shred technicians, recycling and office staff have been dedicated to providing the best customer experience for confidential shredding and recycling customers. This dedication will continue to be the cornerstone of HRS services,” he said.
