KARD, established in 1975, was created in a garage in Waukesha County, Wisconsin, serving commercial and governmental offices and printing businesses. In the 1990s, KARD bought its first shredder and joined the National Association for Information Destruction (NAID). This accrediting body certifies shredding companies, and after obtaining NAID's AAA+ Certification, KARD changed its name to KARD Recycling and Shredding.


In 2017, KARD sold its industrial recycling businesses in New Berlin and Madison to focus solely on its core shredding and destruction services. KARD is now known as simply KARD Shredding, the premier commercial, governmental, and residential data destruction company throughout Southeastern Wisconsin.

Sustainably shredding and recycling the byproduct, KARD Shredding takes pride in serving customers around the region with pick-up services, on-site shredding, and walk-in services. Visit our New Berlin, Wisconsin facility, and we'll greet you with a smile and a promise to meet your sensitive shredding needs! 

We look forward to seeing you next time you need information destroyed - on paper, disk drives, magnetic and medical media, or licensed products!
