What is Recurring Shredding?

If your organization constantly produces paper documentation that has an expiration date, recurring shredding services will help keep your private information safe and keep your company in compliance with information security laws.

Recurring shredding programs, or ongoing services, send a shredding truck to a certain location on a predetermined, regular schedule.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Use shredding bins for your recurring shredding serviceContact your shredder and design a document shredding schedule
  2. Place shred bins throughout your office
  3. Fill up the bins with paperwork to be shredded
  4. Per the schedule a shred truck will stop by and shred the contents of your bins
  5. Empty bins are put back in your office and the process repeats

Depending on your office’s volume requirements, shredding can be scheduled weekly, monthly, quarterly, or annually.

When Will a Recurring Shredding Service Help?

HIPAA, FACTA, and other state and local laws require companies to protect the private information of their customers and employees. To ensure your organization is operating within the law, it’s beneficial to set up a document retention schedule and circulate it throughout the office.

Information Security LawsWhen documents expire on a schedule, recurring shredding services help keep your office tidy. Ongoing shredding helps companies stay within the law by regularly shredding expired documents. Instead of old documents piling up in a corner where they can be compromised they are shredded and disposed of in a timely manner.
