Inside a Professional Shredding Service
Done with feeding documents into your office shredder? Wondering what it would be like to have a professional shredding company destroy your documents? In this blog post, we take you behind the scenes of a professional shredding service.
All businesses and organizations have unique document disposal needs. An experienced and reputable shredding company assesses your needs and considers the following factors before providing a customized shredding solution:
- Document disposal volume
- Compliance requirements
- Budgetary needs
- Security requirements
This shredding consultation helps determine what shredding solution best fits your company.
Partnering with a trusted shredding and destruction company is the best way to prevent data breaches and comply with state and federal privacy regulations. Your shredding provider brings secure collection containers to your office. These locked receptacles allow secure, confidential disposal of paper files with personally identifiable information (PII) and protected health information (PHI). Secure collection containers allow your employees to dispose of documents quickly and eliminate the temptation of discarding PII and PHI in trash receptacles.
Whether you need a one-time purge or a scheduled shredding solution, a secure, mobile shredding truck comes to your place of business. A security-screened shredding representative collects your documents, deposits them directly into a shredding collection bin and loads that bin into the shredding machine. Since mobile shredding trucks allow destruction of your documents on-site at your business, you can watch the entire process from your office window or on a video monitor mounted on the mobile shredding truck.
Final Verification and Recycling.
After your shredding provider destroys your documents, they provide you with a Certificate of Destruction noting the date of destruction and amount of information destroyed. This document proves your information is destroyed in accordance with state and federal privacy regulations. Your shredded waste is then recycled and reused to produce a variety of consumer products.
As you can see, a professional shredding service offers secure, efficient, and compliant disposal of confidential paper records.
