The Birth of a Document Destruction Company

In 1989, our parent company, Empire Recycling Corporation, had a long-time client with a need for confidential data destruction… from there, ConfiData was born.

Starting with that one client, ConfiData now helps thousands of businesses and individuals across all of Central and Upstate New York.  Our goal is to protect the identities of you and your clients, and to help businesses stay compliant and responsible with sensitive information and data.

Headquartered in Utica, ConfiData operates shred facilities in Liverpool, Albany, Utica and Endicott, New York.  Our fleet of mobile trucks can be dispatched to nearly all of Central and Upstate New York.  We’re proud to serve major manufacturers, municipalities, large and small businesses, organizations, and individuals.

Today, Empire Recycling Corporation has grown to include the Empire Recycling Family of Companies, which includes ConfiData, SMR Fibre, Nathan Steel, and ERL Intermodal.  Empire Recycling Corporation is proud to be family owned and operated since 1916.
