“Keeping your information confidential is Priority 1”


Why you should shred?

State and Federal laws mandate the destruction of certain private, personal and business information.  If sensitive information falls into the wrong hands, there can be severe consequences for companies and company officers.

What should be shredded?

Any document containing Personal Identifiable Information (PII) and other sensitive or private information.  This includes a person’s name, Social Security number, address, credit card, account data that identifies a person, medical records, mail from financial institutions regardless if you have an account with that financial institution or not.

Additionally, the National Association for Information Destruction (NAID) advises you shred the following:

  • Account Data
  • Banking information
  • Brainstorming notes
  • Cancelled checks
  • Copies of checks
  • Customer’s addresses
  • Customers’ names
  • Draft of contracts
  • Draft of letters
  • Draft of proposals
  • Education records
  • Employee information
  • Insurance information
  • Internal memos
  • Loan information
  • Market analysis
  • Medical information
  • Misaligned forms
  • Misprinted copies
  • Obsolete records
  • Patient billing information
  • Patient names
  • Payroll information
  • Phone logs
  • Phone messages
  • Purchase orders
  • Sales information
  • Social Security numbers

Do binder clips, paper clips, staples need to be removed?

No, we shred them all.

Paper recycling Vs Shredding

Shredding your confidential information reduces the risk of compromise.

A recycling company does not secure your confidential information from start to finish.

What happens to the shredded paper?

After your confidential documents are shredded, they are recycled and in the recycling process, all of the ink is washed off of the shredded paper.

How can you be confident your documents are destroyed?

You can view the shredding onsite as it is destroyed in our mobile unit.  You will also receive a Certification of Destruction after the job is completed.

Do you Shred 3 ring binders?

We ask that you please try not to provide us with 3 ring binders because they can damage our equipment.
