Do you worry whether your confidential files are being exposed to prying eyes? Routine document destruction can remedy your concerns. In this blog, we explain the benefits of scheduled shredding.

Your scheduled shredding provider brings locked shredding collection containers to your office, enabling your employees to dispose of files without having to remove staples and paperclips. Your provider’s background-screened, uniformed professionals empty the containers according to your customized shredding schedule and transport your documents to a shredding plant for secure, offsite destruction, or shred them onsite with a mobile shredding vehicle.


When documents land in dumpsters and recycling containers, privacy breaches are inevitable. A scheduled shredding service reduces your company’s exposure to identity theft and fraud. Your shredding provider collects, handles, and destroys your documents within a strict chain of custody.
