How On-Site Shredding Works

on-site shreddingOn-site shredding, or mobile shredding is when you hire a trained professional to securely destroy your confidential documents right  in front of your eyes at your preferred location. The process is simple and very convenient. Many businesses choose to have on-site shredding to protect the confidentiality of their documents and remain in compliance with government rules and regulations like FACTA and HIPAA.

How On-Site Shredding Works

When you sign up for on-site shredding you will be delivered locked bins to store your confidential documents in. After you have collected the documents you want to be shredded a mobile shredding truck will come to your location and shred the documents on-site while you watch. The secure on-site shredding process starts from the instant you receive the locked bins to store your confidential documents.

Based on your selected service schedule, a representative will come to your location and empty and shred the bins. During the entire process, your paper is never directly handled by the representative. The locked bin is securely fastened to the chute of the shredding truck and automatically lifted inside the truck to shred your material into tiny pieces, which are mixed with other shredded paper that cannot be reconstructed.
