Our History

Initially, Aroostook Shredding was named Shred-it.

Later it was purchased by a local agency which used the facilities as an on-the-job training program for individuals with developmental disabilities. They changed their training program, and in 2013 put the business up for sale.

Aroostook Shredding was purchased in the fall of 2013 by local businessmen, Garry Nelson Sr. and Harris Nickerson
