Baldo Obregon, Paper Banisher
(aka Balcones Shred Technician – Austin)
Baldo wows customers with his efficiency and speed as he collects their materials. Even after two years on the job, his team is still amazed by the hairline precision with which he drives and parks his Balcones Shred truck. They say you must see it to truly understand.
Favorite thing to see shredded?
Hard drives. I love seeing something that holds so much confidential information being shredded in a matter of seconds.
First car/Dream Car
My first car was a 1993 Mitsubishi Galant. It ran well through high school.
My dream car would be a Chevy Tahoe because of the space and safety.
