Document Shredding for Your Business

Do you have a stack of old documents or papers with private information you need to get rid of? Don’t just throw them in the trash. If anyone can find them, your life is thrown into chaos. Even if you assume it’s securely hidden, have you found the person digging through your trash? Sometimes your trash can talk – to curious eyes!

Document shredding refers to making documents unrecoverable by destroying or altering the physical medium. Documents are commonly shredded to prevent confidential information from being obtained, retained, or reconstructed.

Here are some reasons why you should go for document shredding for your business.

1: Prevention of Identity Theft

Document shredding services can help you protect your personal information from falling into the wrong hands. When you hire a document shredding service, your documents will be shredded on-site and sent to a secure disposal facility where they will be destroyed.

2: Save Space

A common reason people shred is to save space. Documents take up a lot of room, but you can save that space and reuse it for something else by shredding them when they are no longer needed.

Think of what you can do with all that extra space now that your documents are shredded—storing larger items like bikes and surfboards, renovating the basement, or finally finishing that project in the attic. After years of accumulation, now is the perfect time to bring those junkpiles down to the basement and store those shreds instead. It will be easier and cheaper than you might think, and there will be no unsightly stacks of paper ever again.

3. Protect Your Employees and Customer Data

Businesses produce a lot of paper, and today paper has many useful properties. However, the paper also has some disadvantages, one of which is difficult to destroy. The introduction of paper documents into data processing processes has resulted in the need to shred documents regularly. For example, paper records may contain social security numbers, driver’s license numbers, credit card numbers, and other personal information. Paper documents can also contain valuable information about a company’s operations, such as product specifications, pricing policies, or formulas.

Security breaches are all too common, and paper documents are often the primary source of the breaches. Paper documents can be easily stolen or destroyed, and when stolen, the information may be sold.
Secure document destruction ensures that paper documents are no longer available to thieves or vandals. The destruction of paper documents ensures that the information contained on them is completely destroyed.
