COVID Service Update

In accordance with provincial regulations, FSS is closed except for work required by essential services. We are aware that some of you will need our services to keep up with demand and will be checking email and phones at least once a day.

Pick up versus Drop off

Your ready-to-shred documents should be stored securely until you decide whether:

– you want us to pick them up or,
B – you wish to drop them off personally at our facility.

Once your documents are in First Stop Services’ possession, only authorized employees can access your ready-to-shred documents.

This policy ensures the integrity of your records until they are destroyed.


In detail

Pick up:

Just call us!

Ideally, 48 hours is needed for a pick-up but we can often come a lot sooner if needed. We will arrive in one of our secure trucks.

*a small charge applies which will be quoted ahead of time – no surprises!

Drop off:

Take advantage of our Zero Contact Drop-Off by calling* our office to arrange a scheduled time between 9:30a.m. and 3:30p.m, Monday to Wednesday. No drop-offs on Thursday or Fridays.
