What is the Best Way to Handle High Volume Shredding?

High Volume Shredding

The Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act (FACTA) of 1995 changed how businesses discard paper goods. Companies are now responsible for selecting an employee to discard thrown away business documents.

Now, if you’re thinking about high volume shredding, then you’re probably a medium to large sized business. With this kind of business, there are many forms filled with company secrets, and customer data, which all must be kept safe. Without a proper shredding schedule, it can be difficult to keep track of all these different documents. The possibility of in house leaks also becomes higher.

However, with a high volume shredding schedule, you’ll reap the following benefits:

  • efficiency
  • more storage space
  • more room for new office equipment

How Does A High Volume Shredding Service Work?

With a high volume shredding service from a mobile shredding company, it will happen like this:

  1. Huge folders of paper will be tossed into the truck, and they will get shredded in seconds. No need to worry about removing staples, paper clips or bindings.
  2. You can set a daily, weekly, or monthly schedule for shredding.
  3. You’ll be provided with a certificate of destruction, which you may need for audit purposes.

The shredding laws can be complex, so having a professional shredding service back you up makes it simpler.

Why Do I need a Document Shredding Company?

Here are 5 reasons why hiring a high volume shredding company is a good idea:

  1. With the sheer amount of high volume shredding many businesses require, a store bought shredder just won’t keep up with demand.
  2. Assigning an employee to shred documents isn’t a good idea. Even if you paid that employee minimum wage, you’d still be paying more than what you would be paying a shredding company. Besides that, why waste your employee’s time shredding papers? Time is money, so don’t waste it. Shredding machines also require repairs, especially if you’re doing high volume shredding.
  3. According to the FTC safeguards rule of the GLB Act: private data must be monitored for destruction. A mobile shredding service provides an observation screen where you can watch the shredding while it happens.
  4. Non compliance with state laws can lead up to $1,000 fines; violation of federal laws could lead up to fines of $2,500.
  5. Finally, it’s the ethical thing to do. Stolen information hurts your customers and your business’s PR.

Confidential Shredding

It’s not a surprise that fraud and identity theft has caused the loss of millions of dollars. In today’s global business environment, there is a good chance your business or organization is a target. With a solid confidential shredding process, you can save your business from facing that risk.

Not only does fraud impact your business financially, it also can cause your business to suffer from:

  • Negative brand image
  • Lack of trust from your customers
  • Loss of confidence from shareholders

It’s common for business owners spend an excessive amount of money on protecting their computer network, but they neglect to safeguard their hard-copy information. While shredding machines can be effective, the amount of time it takes to shred even a small volume of paper can eat up the productivity of your staff. Plus, most regular shredders are not able to handle shredding into unrecognizable strips.

With a confidential shredding service, a significant amount of your important files can be eliminated without the need for removing staples, paper clips, rubber bands, etc. The service will provide your business with a secure shred collection container and documents stay protected until they come to start the document destruction process.

Whatever volume of shredded material your business generates, an experienced document shredding company will set a schedule to collect and shred it onsite at your premises. Documents will be shredded in accordance with NAID AAA standards and a Certificate of Destruction will verify the process has been completed correctly.

  3. Ensure Protection with a Licensed and Bonded Vendor
