About Us

Who We Are

Gone4Ever shredding is a division of the arc of Alachua County, a 501 c 3 non-profit organization dedicated to supporting those with developmental disabilities and raising community awareness about developmental disorders. The Arc of Alachua County is proud to employ nearly 100 developmentally disabled adults in its Gone4Ever shredding program. We continue to look for ways to benefit our developmentally disabled clients in our community.

What We Do

Gone4Ever shredding services are affordable, convenient and professional. We have the cheapest prices in town for recycling ($0.32 per lb of paper to be shredded), while maintaining the gold standard certification in document destruction — National Association for Information Destruction (NAID) certification. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and since our Gone4Ever (G4E) program is not yet fully staffed, The Arc will only allow residents to drop off their shredding at our main campus (across from Santa Fe College) one day per week (on Wednesdays each week) and only during the time period of 8 AM – 3 PM.  We will show you how The Arc’s Gone4Ever shredding service can help your business realize a better Return On Investment (ROI) for your shredding dollar. Call The Arc at 352-334-4060 and ask for Gone4Ever shredding.

Support a Great Cause

All proceeds that we make go directly to help those people with developmental disabilities that receive Arc services.
