Behind the Scenes of a Professional Paper Shredding Operation

Call Today

Choosing a professional shredding service for your company requires trust. You must have confidence that your documents will be protected. Our behind-the-scenes look at a professional paper shredding operation will give you a better sense of how your confidential information is kept safe.

Vehicle and Facility Security

A professional document destruction operation needs excellent security to maintain its clients' privacy. It must provide protection for everything from its pickup vehicles to its offsite shredding facilities.

GPS tracking technology is standard on all onsite mobile shredding trucks, as well as on pickup and delivery vehicles. The shredding plant itself is a private facility, closed to the public, and is equipped with state-of-the-art security and surveillance systems. All access to the building is tightly controlled and monitored 24 hours a day.

Trustworthy Technicians

A truly professional paper shredding service hires only people with high levels of professionalism and integrity. All personnel must pass extensive screening and sign confidentiality agreements prior to employment. Ongoing training keeps document destruction technicians up-to-date on new identity theft and business fraud risks, as well as privacy protection issues.

Chain of Custody Processes

You can choose from several different destruction processes, based on your company's individual requirements. Regardless of the plan you pick, however, strict chain of custody procedures ensure your information is protected. Both onsite mobile shredding and offsite plant shredding provide locked document destruction containers for the secure collection of your confidential documents.

Shredding technicians will come to your business on a weekly, monthly, or as-needed basis. They will either collect and destroy the contents of your containers onsite, or transport them securely offsite to a shredding plant for destruction.

Strict chain of custody procedures also extend to drop off shredding services. When you bring your sensitive files to a drop off shredding location, a professional service technician will check them in.
