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 material is tedious, costly (who hasn’t purchased a shredding machine that constantly breaks and jams) and in many cases, doesn’t properly shred the material. Management companies are now doing 2 things – having locked consoles or totes on the premises for tenants to utilize or hosting shred days for their communities. For either solution, on-site shredding companies then come directly onto the premises and securely destruct the material in a state-of-the-art mobile shredding truck. All material is reduced to confetti before it leaves the location. Tenants are now ecstatic that their management companies are providing this service for them. It has created a much more efficient means for securing their “sense of security”. If you want to add a valued service for your tenants that will get them talking, then jump on board!
