Our Difference

What sets bayaud apart

Bayaud provides top notch, plant based, AAA NAID Certified paper and hard drive shredding for the Greater Metro Denver homes and businesses at an affordable price. Unlike other document and hard drive destruction services, Bayaud is a local nonprofit that creates jobs for people with disabilities and other barriers to gainful employment. Our shredding services help fund Bayaud Enterprises, an organization that provides vocational programs that place people with physical, mental, emotional and economic barriers to employment, in private and government sector jobs. When you choose Bayaud, you help employ people that wouldn’t otherwise have the ability to secure gainful employment. Have you seen the Laundry Trucks or Shower Truck around town? Those are operated by Bayaud Enterprises to provide clean clothes and showers for those who are homeless.
