No, our industry-standard shredders will destroy virtually every form of information media, not just paper, but all your electronic data (i.e., CDs, DVDs, computer hard drives, film, audio- and videotape, even your plastic credit cards).
About the only thing we won’t handle is hazardous or explosive media or liquids—items not often used as information storage, fortunately!
What kind of information should I be concerned to destroy?
Many companies have never taken a serious inventory of all the confidential and sensitive information in their files and other data storage. Among the items to be aware of and make sure you are disposing of securely are:
Personnel files such as
– Payroll data
– Background checks
– Medical and insurance records
Strategic Business Information, e.g.
– Development plans
– Proposals for new products or services
– Competitive research
Operating income and expense records, including
– Accounts receivable
– Payment records
Sales data, including
– Price lists
– Customer lists
Legal records, such as
– Business audit records
– Tax documents
– Annual financial statements and reports
Customer records, including
– Credit information
– Cancelled cheques
Miscellaneous documents, such as
– Advertising copy
– Archival files and records
How does your shredding process work?
Unlike common shredders, which work primarily by cutting materials into strips, our top-of-the-line machines offer cross-cut shredding. This reduces your materials to tiny pieces — approximately 12 millimeters in size — making our disposal process much more definitive and secure.
How can I be certain my confidential information is really destroyed?
We are so confident about our process that we offer two guarantees:
We welcome you to come or send a member of your staff to oversee our process in person as your materials are shredded.
Once your information has been destroyed, we will provide you with a Certificate of Destruction, documenting the material’s “chain of custody.”
Do you provide one-time, irregular, and small-job services?
Yes, we have no limit on the size of jobs we accept, and we are happy to help you with your one- time, occasional, annual, or regularly scheduled needs.
Can you store my materials for me before destroying them?
Yes, we also offer temporary secure storage services for materials that are scheduled to be disposed of but not quite yet.
