It’s a Smart Move to Hire a Professional Document Disposal Company

There are so many challenges companies may have to overcome these days – facing identity theft should not be one of them. The most effective way to protect individuals and businesses from theft is to hire a professional document disposal company to shred and destroy any confidential information.

Corporate identity theft can easily occur in the following ways:

  • Unprotected documents stolen from work by employees or staff
  • Data breaches and digital theft due to lack of cybersecurity protection and firewalls
  • Pickpocketing wallets, checkbooks, stolen paper mail from unlocked offices or desks
  • Confidential information directly taken from the trash or recycle bin

You are required by law to dispose of all of your documents properly. States have set up specific laws about what information needs to be removed from the file before you can dispose of it. You need to either black out all personal information, including social security numbers, account numbers, names, addresses and phone numbers or you need to shred the documents.

These are the key privacy regulations you need to be familiar with:

  • The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) This law requires that healthcare industry professionals responsibly shred discarded patient information
  • The Fair and Accurate Credit Transaction Act (FACTA) of 2003 was established to help reduce the risk of identity theft by requiring responsible shredding of discarded customer information
  • The Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA) This law requires banking and financial institutions to consistently protect the privacy of consumer data.

It’s essential for your business to establish a document disposal process. Train your employees so they have a good understanding of how you wish to manage document destruction and disposal. There are several state and federal laws which insist that you safeguard private information for your employees and customers. In order to remain compliant with these regulations, you must frequently destroy confidential and obsolete business information. It’s best to schedule a specific time each year or each quarter to sort through your documents in order to determine which ones should be destroyed.

Having a process in place helps you organize your current documents when it’s time to dispose of them. It’s key to have a good understanding of which documents you should permanently keep in your office, which ones need to go into storage, and which ones you can dispose of. For instance, if you have used the document or file in the last six months, you should keep it. Old business contracts and legal documents can be stored in a locked office or cabinet on-site. It’s absolutely crucial that medical records should be kept longer than a sales projections and other files. Old hard drives should also be properly destroyed, which can be achieved through on site hard drive destruction services.

Hiring A Document Disposal Company

When you hire a professional document disposal company, be sure they are certified by the NAID and that they have trained their technicians at the highest level of proficiency. When you shred on-site, a Certificate of Destruction should be provided by your document disposal company once the job is complete. This is proof that your sensitive documents were completely destroyed using proper methods, according to the highest standards in the industry.

Most companies today are faced with many different types of risks. The most prevalent ones are identity theft and data breaches. Every business has proprietary information stored that is essential to their success. Theft for competitive gain is hard to combat and if proprietary information gets into the wrong hands, it could potentially damage your business. Whether it’s sabotage, stealing marketing ideas or special formulas for products, destruction is a wise investment.

Document Destruction Service

It’s wise to ensure the companies with whom you do business also have a data security and destruction policy in place. Protect your data by assessing your internet connections and device security. Train your employees to be weary when they respond to digital communications so you can be sure your private data stays secure and remains uncompromised.

Whether it’s paper documents or digital media, destruction of your confidential materials must be handled in the proper way. There are specific shredding and media destruction policies, as well as data protection rules and regulations. These laws extend beyond the actual destruction process and include the entire process of collection, staging, transport, processing and disposal. It’s crucial that your company maintains a constant purge of its confidential information – and the safest, fastest, most economical way to do that is to hire a professional document destruction service.

When you hire a professional document destruction service, be sure to find one that offers on-demand and on-site shredding services. This is the most convenient way to ensure that your confidential information is destroyed in a safe and secure manner. At IntelliShred, we even offer same day shredding services.

Mobile or on-site shredding happens specifically at your location and only at your convenience. It’s not necessary for you to worry about who will be transporting your confidential data to another location so it can be destroyed. These high-tech mobile trucks are capable of shredding a large volume of paper in an hour, saving you time and money.

Typically, the on-site shredding is done with your direct supervision and with the help of a camera, which closely monitors the process, so that everything is being destroyed properly. Afterwards, the service technician should be able to provide the proper documentation (certificate of destruction) which confirms the job has met compliance standards.

When you set up a recurring schedule with your shredding service, lockable bins will be left in your office. Once they are full, trained shredding service professionals will collect their contents and repeat the on-site shredding process without interrupting your staff.

There are specific federal and state privacy laws that companies must abide by when dealing with their confidential information. Failure to meet federal privacy protection requirements can result in fines and/or criminal penalties. An on-site document destruction service can help you remain compliant to the following regulations:

  • Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)
  • Fair and Accurate Credit Transaction Act (FACTA)
  • Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLB)
  • Federal Trade Commission Red Flag Rules

IntelliShred is NAID certified and has full document destruction service capabilities. We have years of expertise helping our customers destroy their sensitive documents and digital media storage devices. Contact us today for more information on how we can help you.

Paper Shredding Bins

In any organization, important paper documents tend to accumulate over time. At some point, their use will expire and they will need to be disposed of or destroyed. Most companies assume that it’s less expensive to purchase a small office shredder and do their own shredding, but there are other major costs associated with that choice.

The best solution to this paper problem is to purchase lockable paper shredding bins and contract with a professional shredding and destruction service. When you have several hundred pounds of paper to shred at once, it makes sense to collect it in a safe and secure way and then have it shredded more efficiently.

Locked paper shredding bins can be strategically placed in an office to help manage the collection of confidential paperwork. This sensitive material goes directly into secure bins so that it does not get into the wrong hands. When it’s time, these documents are collected from the special tamper-proof containers and shredded by a mobile shredding truck on-site, safely and securely.

Lockable paper shredding consoles are a smart, efficient and cost-effective way to demonstrate that your company places a priority on protecting information. Choose the appropriately sized console to help you build a safer and more productive office environment.

Why not use a small office shredder instead?

When you buy a small office shredder, the process becomes more costly and is not as safe or secure. First of all, you’ll need to have an employee operate the shredder, and that takes time away from their productivity. Secondly, the more you use the shredder, the more it will deteriorate and become less dependable. With time, it will also jam more often and need maintenance or repairs.

When the documents you’re not shredding pile up and are not stored securely, it creates a huge security risk. With hiring a purge shredding service, you have the peace of mind that your confidential information is properly destroyed and disposed of.

You are hopefully confident that your employees are trustworthy, however, there’s always a chance they may accidentally discover confidential information if it’s not stored properly. That’s why having a locked paper shredding bin is more secure – it will help avoid this issue.

Remaining compliant with HIPAA regulations

In order to remain HIPAA compliant, the law requires certain documents that contain personal or sensitive information to be completely destroyed. By keeping this information locked in paper shredding bins, you help your organization avoid thousands of dollars in penalties and fines.

Hiring a professional shredding service will help protect the information you’re responsible for keeping. Employees can simply drop any sensitive documents in the bin and when it’s time to shred, the qualified technician will remove it in the proper fashion. The paper will be dumped into the hopper of an industrial truck-based mobile shredder and then seconds later it will be destroyed. When the shredding job is complete, the technician will issue a certificate of destruction as proof of HIPAA compliance.

It’s always recommended that companies put procedures in place to handle sensitive documents with confidential information. Part of that includes purchasing locked paper shredding bins to collect it all.

IntelliShred can help destroy your paper documents in a safe, secure manner. We have storage bins of all sizes available for our customers use. Please contact us today to learn more about our shredding and destruction services.

Recall Destruction Services

No matter how large or small, every manufacturer at one time or another is faced with a recalled product. Whether it’s a truckload or warehouse full of defective, returned or outdated merchandise, or something that lacked the right specifications. As with the proper disposal of e-waste, it’d be smart to reuse, or recycle the product in some way, however, it may not be possible to send a product to a recycler in every recall situation, because the process is not secure enough to protect your brand.

There are millions of dollars spent every year by manufacturers to protect their brand name and identity. When companies are faced with a product that has been recalled, it’s recommended that they involve certified recall destruction services. They can help you avoid the risk of corporate identity theft, or some kind of further injury to your organization’s reputation.

Certified recall destruction services are specially equipped to handle the destruction and disposal of recalled products. Their process is securely and efficiently executed and they typically will provide you with a certificate of destruction to be sure all regulations and approved destruction methods were used.

Here are the four most important reasons why recall destruction services are the best option for recalled products:

It will protect your brand.
Protecting your brand involves so much more than copyrights and trademarks. If your company has recalled products that did not meet quality standards, if they are not destroyed, they could end up on the grey market. When grey market products appear for sale, they can mislead your customer, ultimately damaging your reputation. Some specific items that should be destroyed are medical uniforms with embroidered logos, any damaged goods, discontinued products, manufacturing overruns, promotional merchandise, seized counterfeit products, and products with outdated packaging.

It’s the best way to limit liability.

It’s true that your company could be liable for defective and expired products. Destroying these products helps limit your company’s exposure to significant liability. Recalled products which no longer meet regulatory standards or standards of quality should be destroyed. In the U.S., the agencies responsible for overseeing product recalls are the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CSPC).

Manufactured products that are most often recalled include:

  • Cosmetics and Perfumes
  • Handbags and women’s accessories
  • Media including counterfeit movies and music
  • Clothing
  • Shoes
  • Jewelry
  • Counterfeit licensed goods from movies or sports leagues

 

Save proprietary information from getting into the wrong hands.
In this digital age, recalled or obsolete media products need to be destroyed to avoid disclosure of proprietary information or confidential data. Most electronic products contain embedded memory and the information stored there can be easily retrieved with special software. Trade secrets, formulas and prototypes could find their way to your competitor if these digital storage devices are not destroyed.

 

Achieve compliance with regulations on hazardous waste.
Maintaining compliance is essential for those companies that work with hazardous chemicals or toxic substances. They require their own special handling to protect themselves from the standards and regulations of the EPA. Secretly disposing of blemished, defective or expired products that contain hazardous chemicals could increase the risk of liability. In order to meet state and federal regulations, companies should look for disposal or recall destruction services which offer a certified process and are familiar with hazardous waste and recycling regulations.

These certified recall destruction services will maintain tracking and security throughout the destruction and disposal process. They typically provide photographic or video evidence so can be sure that your disposal is handled in a secure, efficient and environmentally safe way.

IntelliShred has spent two decades helping local businesses handle the destruction and disposal of their recalled products. We take pride in our confidential data destruction and shredding services that we offer. Our commitment to the highest ethical standards and practices, and outstanding, personalized service is unmatched by our competitors.

Scheduled Shredding Services

It’s unrealistic to think that your confidential information and data is fully protected. No matter what type of secure systems you may have in place, there’s always a risk of theft – especially if you still deal with paper documents. Today’s businesses must hire professional document destruction companies to ensure their information is destroyed properly. Company information, proprietary secrets/formulas, client records and employee files must all be safely destroyed when they are no longer useful.

There are many benefits to hiring a mobile shredding company that offers regularly scheduled shredding services:

  • Protecting privacy
  • Increasing productivity
  • Reducing liability
  • Protecting your business reputation
  • Saving the environment
  • Third party confirmation documents have been destroyed

But the most prominent reason companies choose to shred regularly is to save money.

First and foremost, regularly scheduled shredding services save you from paying your employees overtime. It allows your current employees to be more efficient and productive so they can continue to focus on more important business matters. In order to start with this type of service, the provider will install document collection containers within your office space, allowing employees to discard items in a secure fashion. These containers are then emptied according to your customized schedule and your documents are then shredded safely and securely.

Another way companies will save money is to avoid costly penalties associated with the safety of confidential information. A shredding service can help your company regularly maintain compliance with all of the regulations surrounding information and privacy. The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), the Fair Trade and Accurate Credit Transaction Act (FACTA), and Gramm-Leach-Bliley (GLB) all enforce federal standards on privacy of confidential information. Shredding on a regular basis ensures you will meet all the privacy protection standards. The service provider will offer proof that your items have been shredded in a Certificate of Destruction. Having this proof also reduces any other potential liability risks your business may face.

Most businesses rely on their good reputation to maintain a constant flow of customers. When documents are not properly destroyed, they may fall into the wrong hands and this could affect your company’s reputation. To manage the negative PR could cost you hundreds, if not thousands of dollars – that’s money out the window!

Your clients, your employees, and possibly your whole community will no longer trust your business practices.

It’s best to find the right professional for the job – make sure the one working for you is screened, uniformed and has experience in shredding and destruction. Typically, customers choose to have the shredding done at their business location by a mobile shredding truck, but it’s also possible to have the items transported to a secure warehouse where the shredding is executed.

IntelliShred has been servicing the tri-state area for over two decades. We hire only the best technicians for our shredding and destruction teams and we pride ourselves on how dedicated they are. Our customers continue to shred with us again, and again and we’re happy that they know we’ll help them relieve the burden and stress that comes with this important task.

Mobile Shredding Company

See Recycling Today’s article on us!

In today’s world, paper documents and digital storage devices store confidential information for businesses around the globe. It’s crucial to have this information protected and when it’s no longer useful, businesses must shred and destroy these items properly to avoid fines, penalties and even lawsuits.

Most businesses believe that hiring a mobile shredding company will be too expensive for their budget. They think it’s cheaper to have an internal employee sit next to a small office shredder and on a daily basis, spend at least an hour or two shredding. A mobile shredding company is indeed the most cost-effective and secure way to shred and destroy your sensitive information.

There are several reasons why hiring a mobile shredding company is essential:

  1. Information Security & Safety: Using mobile shredding trucks will help your business eliminate the risk of identity theft. With mobile shredding and destruction services, there are cameras which will document the shredding methods to ensure they are done in a secure fashion. Your business will rest easier knowing that your information was safely destroyed.

 

  1. Compliance with State & Federal Regulations: Because the mobile shredding service is executed on site, in front of your eyes, they will provide you with an official Certificate of Destruction. This certificate can be used to prove that your business has remained compliant with state and federal regulations.

 

  1. Your Employees Will Remain Productive: It’s common for any quality mobile shredding and destruction team to come directly to your location to handle the whole process on site. Having a third-party manage this time-consuming work helps your employees remain productive and keeps their focus on more important work.

 

  1. Saving Time, Energy & Trees: Mobile shredding companies can save the environment most effectively. These companies typically have advanced shredding and destruction equipment that can handle larger jobs in a faster timeframe. When a business chooses mobile shredding, the methods in which they process paper helps save time, energy and in turn, trees. These mobile trucks are always ready to haul your shredded materials to a recycling plant.

 

  1. Most Cost-efficient Method: There are always higher costs associated with doing the shredding and destruction internally. It’s more expensive to use a small office shredder because it’s not reliable and it has to be consistently maintained and repaired. If you hire a professional shredding service, the cost per shred will be less – instead, the shredding service will have to take on the costs of maintaining their equipment.

 

IntelliShred has been a high-quality mobile shredding company for over 20 years. Our team of shredding and destruction experts will be able to answer all your questions and help alleviate the burden of eliminating your confidential and sensitive information.

Secure Document Destruction

For today’s companies, there continues to be an enormous risk of identity theft. Whether it’s through the interface of company computers, hacking of email accounts or even cell phones. There is one way to prevent identity theft from infiltrating your business – hiring a secure document destruction service.

It is important to choose a vendor that is trustworthy and capable of providing a safe and secure shredding environment. Secure document destruction will efficiently shred or destroy your confidential documents and files.

Before you hire them, it’s crucial that you ask these questions.

  1. What are the steps of their shredding and destruction process?
    Secure document destruction can help your business continue to be productive, saving you time and money. The only thing is, the vendor you choose should be able to walk you through the steps of their process. You should feel confident that your sensitive information is being destroyed or recycled safely and securely. Typically, vendors will give your office few bar-coded collection bins so that employees can easily drop in documents. When the bin is full, the vendor sends someone to scan each bin to record the fill level. Then, if the vendor has a mobile shredding truck, documents are shredded on-site. If not, the bins are transported to a secure shredding facility. The vendor should always provide a Certificate of Destruction for your records. The best service providers will ensure that your shredded material is either recycled or destroyed.

 

    1. How can they ensure my sensitive or confidential information is safe?
      It’s wise to uncover the vendor’s operation standards so you can determine if your documents will be safely destroyed. Usually, if the secure document destruction service is worth hiring, they will make security a top priority. Their employees should have signed a confidentiality agreement, gone through extensive background checks and have participated in extensive training to do their job. Employee security is absolutely crucial – be sure the company has hired ethical people by asking about their hiring process. There is a special need for medical service providers to make sure their vendors are working within HIPAA standards as well.

 

  1. Do they handle E-waste as well as paper documents?
    This question will help you decide if a potential vendor has the ability to offer a comprehensive electronic shredding solution. Like paper records, hard drives, tapes, and compact disks also contain sensitive information. Deleting or overwriting these devices still leaves your data vulnerable to unauthorized access. Besides destroying your paper records, the right shredding and destruction partner will also shred your media onsite.

 

  1. Are they properly certified?
    Typically, all commercial shredding companies are certified with the National Association for Information Destruction (NAID). This ensures they operate with a high level of security and professional standards for their destruction processes. Certified companies must comply with all of the industry codes of ethics and requirements set by NAID.

Whatever vendor you choose, be sure that they offer mobile shredding services. Sometimes, with off-site shredding, the transporting of your documents from your office puts them at a higher risk of being lost, misplaced or getting into the wrong hands. There are shredding companies that provide mobile, on-site shredding, as well as emergency shredding services. Make sure you choose the right vendor for the needs of your company.

IntelliShred has years of expertise in secure document destruction – we’re NAID certified and we’re able to successfully help companies protect confidential information. Contact us today to find out more about how we can help your business.

Destruction Services

In today’s busy economy, every business is a consumer and a producer of paper. Tons of paper, packaging, and other items that are made of paper or cardboard which are often thrown right into the landfill. Of course, this practice impacts the environment in a negative way – but what if every company chose to protect themselves and the environment at the same time by shredding?

It’s wise for companies to shred paper, especially documents which have confidential or sensitive information. Businesses should discourage excessive printing by employees unless absolutely necessary, and corporate policies regarding wasted resources should be in place. Of course, there will be a sizeable amount of paper generated by the company, but it definitely will need to be disposed of. Hiring third-party destruction services is the right solution. Not only is it efficient, effective, secure and economical, it also helps sustain the environment.

As your business progresses, destruction services will help:

Avoid Risk of Information Theft

Most companies are eco-minded and they recycle tons of paper, but throwing sensitive documents into a recycling bin is never a safe choice. Anyone could find it and pass it on to a competitor, or even worse, actually steal someone’s personal identity. So that your company will never have to face this risk, it’s best to hire destruction services. Find a vendor who is NAID AAA Certified and provides you with a certificate of destruction to prove the job was done securely. In order to help save the environment from unnecessary damage, most bulk shredding companies will recycle the destroyed paper once it is shredded.

Reduce Your Environmental Impact

Most people don’t know that 100% of shredded paper is recycled. Most of the paper shredded is recycled and turned into products we use daily, like napkins, paper cups, egg cartons, paper towels, writing paper, shopping bags, and more. It’s expensive to produce new paper because of the cost to our environment – when cutting down trees for making paper, it adds more pollution and it requires 70% more energy and water to make than recycled paper. There is proof that recycling paper reduces our environmental impact – for example, recycling one ton of paper saves 17 trees, which absorb a significant amount of carbon dioxide, purifying the air we breathe.

Customers Learn You’re Eco-friendly

Today’s customers not only demand quality in the products and services you provide, they wish to also make eco-friendly purchase decisions. If your company has a greater stance on how it supports the environment, your customers may become loyal to you based on it. If you have sustainable business practices, if you recycle, if you shred, if you reuse items to manufacture products, your customers will appreciate that and buy from you more often.

No matter the size of your business, it’s important that you employ destruction services. Professional document shredding provides a confidential and secure method. If you want to grow a set of loyal customers, inform them that you are shredding so they realize you are helping the environment.

IntelliShred has been servicing customers since 1999. We have been working to consistently achieve the highest shredding standards. We are members of the National Association for Information Destruction (NAID) and we have performed to meet AAA Certification every year – the highest security standard in the shredding industry.

Bulk Shredding

Operating a daily business can be challenging and eliminating unnecessary expenses can be difficult. In order to save that money from flying out the window, every business should aim to achieve efficient operations, while attempting to reduce expenses and increase profits. One of the ways a business can save money is to employ a professional bulk shredding and destruction service.

The smartest way to achieve savings is to offload the large volume of paper documents and other information storage devices to a bulk shredding service. With only using a small office shredder, you’ll be spending more money when you must deal with the additional costs associated with using the machine (cleaning, maintenance, replacement parts). Most bulk shredding professionals will offer on-demand services, so you will only be paying for what you’re using. It’s way more convenient for you to outsource this work to a professional service – as it is a waste of time to do it in-house.

When tasking your employees with doing this time-consuming work, your company will lose productivity and there could be additional expenses for the business, depending on the volume of shredding required. Even more savings will occur when your employees return to their productivity levels. They will no longer be sitting around a tiny office shredder attempting to handle the shredding of your important business documents.

To calm the identity theft at work worries of customers, your business should share the manner in which their sensitive data is being used, stored and disposed of. It’s essential for businesses to provide detailed information on exactly how these tasks are performed. Bulk shredding service companies will understand how to execute the shredding and destruction process in a confidential manner.

Remaining compliant is another crucial step for businesses today. It’s necessary to maintain compliance with current federal privacy regulations. Without compliance, businesses could face a more significant risk of severe fines or legal actions. The financial benefit is that this type of professional service will save you from any legal action by shredding in a secure manner, ensuring your private information remains confidential.

No matter the size of your business, the best companies out there are great at providing transparency and excellent service quality. Professional bulk shredding also gives your customers the peace of mind that their data is handled in a very confidential and secure way. When your customers are free from worrying about identity theft, they’re more likely to become loyal customers, therefore reducing your company’s client acquisition costs.

Convenience, regulatory compliance, and incremental cost savings. Three important reasons why you should not wait to hire a professional bulk shredding and destruction company.

Since 1999, we have been providing Information security solutions to the tri-state area. We are committed to maintaining the highest ethical standards and practices, and outstanding, personalized service. Our membership in the National Association for Information Destruction (NAID) has been consistent and we achieve AAA Certification every year – the highest security standard in the shredding industry.

Certified Product Destruction

It’s not rare that product manufacturers or packaging companies end up with a warehouse full of products or components that they are no longer able to sell. Sometimes it’s because of a product recall, a recent legal action or even a change in manufacturing standards.

It’s important that companies have secure, cost-effective solutions for destroying these items. To protect their brand, trademark or copyright, companies should choose highly-qualified vendors for certified product destruction services. It’s a wise choice to keep branded items from ending up in the wrong hands and ruin the company’s reputation.

Without destroying these products, there is a high risk for a brand-named business to falter. Sometimes these products can appear on the “grey market” and that would create increased liability, brand erosion, and millions in legal costs. It is necessary that companies procure a certified product destruction option to protect their brand identity.

Certified product destruction is the process of destroying or disposing of these leftover products. Typically, these services ensure destruction of these leftover products so they will not be used illegally.

For some companies, there are concerns over disposing of certain media products, like digital devices, films, or paper documents. These items should not be disposed of, they should be destroyed properly to avoid disclosure of confidential details or data. Electronic products usually contain embedded memory with quickly duplicated software. They should also be destroyed to protect your trademarked or patented designs from getting into the hands of your rivals.

Whatever type of vendor you hire for the job, be sure they provide monitoring and protection throughout the whole destruction process. With valid proof of the destruction, they can guarantee that the products are indeed destroyed. Be sure to look for companies that provide the appropriate paperwork, including a certificate of destruction, as well as, photographic and/or video evidence of destruction.

It’s not always easy to hire a vendor that’s experienced in this area, has the proper destruction equipment, and will provide you with the best price. But here are some things to consider when searching for a certified product destruction vendor:

  • Trustworthiness – are there good references from previous clients?
  • Are they experienced and licensed properly?
  • Be sure to understand the disposal plan for e-waste destruction and that it’s legal
  • Are they going to provide evidence of the entire destruction process?
  • Does the facility have 24/7 surveillance for their storage area?
  • Will they provide you with certification that the destruction has been completed properly?

IntelliShred’s certified product destruction services have been helping customers destroy paper, floppy drives, CD’s and DVD’s, Video Cassettes, Microfilm, Microfiche and many more products.

We provide a certificate of destruction, and a green solution for the disposal of your destroyed material. Our on-site team will come to your location to perform the destruction with our mobile trucks.
