Need Secured Document Destruction?

Document Destruction

Document Destruction Company is affiliated by ownership with Mid America. DDC is Chicago’s longest running document destruction firm, servicing Chicagoland, northeast Wisconsin, Northwest Indiana, and Southwest Michigan.

Incorporated in 1983, DDC provides both onsite and offsite destruction service. Our building is all brick, operates indoor docks, has surveillance cameras, and has a security door entry for visitors. Our employees are background checked, drug tested, bonded and insured, and sign confidentiality agreements upon hiring. The entire process is managed by a plant supervisor.

DDC offers prescheduled and ‘as called’ service to banks, hospitals, doctor and dentist offices, insurance companies, law firms, financial institutions, federal and state government agencies, local municipalities, records storage companies, schools, colleges, personal residences, many of Mid America’s recycling customers, and other industries. We destroy all types of paper records, hard drives, electronic media, credit cards, x-rays, and other products. We are a NAID member in good standing and are active on its boards, committees, and task forces.

Product Destruction

Document Destruction Company, along with its parent Mid America, partners with and develops ongoing programs for businesses to properly destroy their products and comply with established laws and regulations. Protecting intellectual property, safeguarding against the resale of sensitive items like clothing, destroying damaged or expired food and liquids, and managing the ongoing destruction needs of expired, obsolete or damaged electronic items by way of shredding or de-manufacturing are a few of our main concentrations. We work with many of our recycling customers along with document destruction customers who also require product destruction as well.

Various circuit boards


For items that do not necessarily require the added protection of destruction, or that previously had sensitive parts removed, Document Destruction Company and Mid America Paper offer e-Recycling services. We work with ISO, R2, and NAID certified companies. Product Destruction and e-Recycling are lateral service offerings that add value and strengthen our destruction and recycling businesses.
