Preparing your Documents for Shredding at a Drop Off Location

Think drop off shredding is the right service for you? Here are a few tips to make sure your shredding goes smoothly:

Tip #1: Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff

The industrial-size shredders that our providers use can take care of staples, paper clips, and bindings. There’s no need to remove these from any of your documents. Once you collect all the documents you would like to shred, just drop them into the secure shredding containers as–is!

Tip #2: No Need to Separate or Organize

Although you need to be sure you go through all the documents you plan to shred beforehand to be sure you aren’t violating retention laws. There is no need to organize your documents by paper type, thickness, or category. Papers can be brought in regardless of whether they’re clipped or stapled. Since the bins you put your documents are never opened until they’re shredded, just figure out the best way to transport them, and you’ll be good to go.

Tip #3: Be Sure to Know What You Can—and Can’t—Shred

Although shredding services can shred virtually anything, when you’re using a drop off service, some items can’t be mixed in with the stuff you’re planning to shred. Before you head their way, give the drop off location near you a call to see what they can and can’t accept. 

If you have secure documents, like medical records, or have hard drives or other electronics that need electronic media destruction, a shredding service may be the best option for you. Documents like medical records or other industry regulated material may require witnessing the shredding to maintain compliance. If you think this could be you, or you have questions because of the process, give a service expert a call and we can walk you through the process.
