I’m tired of looking at that pile of papers that needs to be shred all the time…

If I told you that there was a simple process that many companies (but not all), have adopted to fix this issue, would you listen? Furthermore, if I told you that it was much more secure and in many cases would actually save you money, would you listen then?

Folks, this is an easy decision to make. You utilize an on-site shredding company to do this work for you. We will place a lockable shredding console in your office space and then service the contents on a weekly or monthly basis, depending upon your need. The shredding is done curbside…

Are you shredding everything you need to be?

I am often surprised that some organizations do not detail out a “road map” for their employees on what paper should be shredded. Often, they will make the mistake of just destructing the most sensitive of materials, i.e a client list, credit card authorizations, etc. Information thieves in this day and age have numerous ways to extrapolate information, often, with little to go on. To be safe, any document that connects a name, business or personal, to any other information, regardless of content, should be properly shredded. It was just a few weeks ago that we had an example…

Should we do it, or should they do it?

Some companies have the philosophy “I have employees that don’t do much anyway, let them stand in front of a shredder all day” Now, aside from the obvious questions – why are we operating so inefficiently? Why are we wasting employee time, isn’t that time much more valuable used elsewhere? How are we managing our people, etc. The truth is, just look at the numbers. You can use an hourly wage employee in many cases and realize it makes sense to use an on-site shredding solution. When you factor in independent shredder machine cost and maintenance, not to…

Who is concerned with protecting private information?

It used to be that only higher profile companies would make sure they utilized on-site shredding companies to destroy their confidential material. As time progressed and the world kept getting more precarious, organizations of all sizes followed suite. Understandably, private individuals are now becoming more concerned with how they handle their private information, i.e. receipts, tax returns – any documents/media that has any of their personal information on it. The newest trend hitting New York and New Jersey have condo/apartment communities providing secure on-site shredding for their tenants. As we all know, using temperamental shredding machines to destroy our…
