You can set up scheduled shredding to keep you in compliance with state and federal information privacy laws. The process is simple. Having routine removes the pressure of continually calling to schedule visits and ensures that your confidential information is shredded regularly for optimal security.

Bulk rates are available for storage clean-outs or file purges.

On- and Off-Site Document Destruction

Our on-site shredding service allows you to schedule a time for us to come directly to you for your document destruction service. It’s quick and convenient, and you’re able to watch your documents get shredded right in front of you.

With our off-site shredding service, your documents are picked up and securely disposed of within our secure chain of custody. Off-site shredding is extremely cost-effective.

With either type of shredding service, we mix your shredded paper with thousands of pounds of other customers’ shredded paper before baling and sending it for recycling.

Laws and Regulations

Downstream Data Coverage

Why Proper Professional Liability Insurance is So Critical to You, Our Customer

Using outside vendors for data destruction and other data-related services has grown very popular because they can do it more securely and more economically than organizations can do it for themselves.

But, with stringent regulations and severe financial consequences, customers have come to realize that they are responsible in the unlikely event a data breach or other loss is caused by those vendors – no matter how it happened.

This is why it is critical to insist that your data-related service provider carry insurance that indemnifies you from any financial consequences they may cause.

Most Professional Liability Products Do NOT Adequately Address the Risks

Off-the-shelf professional liability policies often exclude claims that result from the intentional acts of employees or that violate federal regulations. Yet, in the case of data-related theft or fraud, those are exactly the acts most likely to cause a claim in the first place!
