No matter what type of business you run, chances are you have paperwork that contains sensitive information. This information can be kept, but for many medium-sized businesses—or small businesses that deal with a lot of paperwork, it must be discarded otherwise it builds up to gargantuan levels and paper is coming out of your front door. It also must be discarded in a way that is compliant with local and federal safety regulations. Since we’ve established that this is something that is necessary to do, the only question is should you shred your paper onsite or offsite?
Offsite Paper Shredding
Shredding your documents offsite is highly convenient. Regardless of whether you choose onsite or offsite shredding, Shred With Us will come to your place of business, extricate the documents that are designated for destruction, and take them to our state of the art shredding facility. If you would like, we also offer the option of setting up heavy-duty lockboxes at your place of business so that you can place your documents for shredding in there. From there on, you can schedule pickups at the most convenient times for you and we’ll be happy to come and pick them up.
One of the most important things we stress is that all documents that are taken back to our facility are subjected to the highest standards for shredding compliance. We are familiar with and cover an array of federal laws and regulations including but not limited to:
- The Fair and Accurate Credit Transaction Act of 2003, also known as FACTA
- The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996, also known as HIPPA.
- The Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, also known as GLB.
- The Privacy Act of 1974.
- The Resource Conservation and Recovery Act, also known as RCRA.
- The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act, also known as FERPA.
Onsite Paper Shredding
There are certainly perks to shredding your documents offsite (out of sight, out of mind). We’ve had many of our clients express how much time, effort, and space they’ve said by having us take their documents off of the premises and destroy them at our facility. Even when shredding offsite, we inform clients every step of the way as to when they were destroyed, as well as offer our complete guarantee that they are destroyed.
However, some businesses that deal with particularly sensitive information are sometimes very cautious about disposing of documents. After all, one slip up and a subsequent information breach, and they have a scandal on their hands. Thus, they can’t rest easy at night unless they’ve seen these documents go through the shredder personally (this is satisfying)
Our mobile shredding services are perfect for these highly diligent businesses that want to see the job through from start to finish. You might think our mobile shredding services are second to our facility services, but that couldn’t be farther from the truth! We’ve put great effort into ensuring that our mobile shredding vans are equipped with state of the art shredders that can achieve up to 6500 lbs/hr of throughput!
