Why Use A Shredding Service?


By now everyone knows that you should shred confidential documents that have outlived their usefulness, but some organizations still insist on shredding everything themselves.

Here’s why we think you should consider using a shredding service, instead of your office shredder:

  • Ensures That Your Organization Will Be Compliant With Information Destruction Laws
    A good shredding company does more than shred paper. They are information security experts that can help your organization stay compliant with the HIPAA, HI-TECH, FACTA, GLB as well as all other federal and state information destruction laws.

  • Stops Your Confidential Information From Falling Into The Wrong Hands
    Confidential records that fall into the wrong hands can expose your customers and employees to information fraud and identity theft, and subject your company to severe fines, bad PR and lost business.

  • Employees Can Focus On Their Jobs…Instead of Shredding
    Using a shredding service lets your employees focus on the jobs you hired them to do.

  • Shredding Services Provide A Certificate of Destruction
    If you use your office shredder to destroy confidential documents there is no record of what's been shredded, when it's been shredded or by whom. Shredding companies help protect your organization in the event of an audit or lawsuit by providing a Certificate of Destruction to document every shred.

  • It’s Costs 40% Less Than Your Office Shredder
    When you consider employee wages and the time it takes for them to shred, then factor in depreciation and maintenance costs on the shredder, it costs nearly twice as much to use an office shredder as it does for an on-going shredding service.
