Highly Trained Professionals 

Our shredding partners follow strict security protocols when it comes to hiring. Our shredding technicians are background-checked and highly trained to protect your information.

Reporting the chain of custody provides a paper trail detailing where your documents are and who they have come in contact with. The chain of custody gives you peace of mind and protects you in the event of any legal action or dispute.   

GPS Tracking 

Our shredding trucks are equipped with GPS-tracking systems to monitor their locations and record the vehicle’s routines and stops. This information is reported on the chain of custody.  

Video Monitoring

Industrial-grade, Industry-approved Shredding Equipment 

Our shredding facilities and shred trucks use industrial-grade shredding equipment that quickly and powerfully destroy your documents into confetti-like particles. The equipment makes reconstruction virtually impossible to provide the highest security.

Certificate of Destruction 

A paper shredding certificate of destruction displays important information from your shredding service. Details include the time and location of service, a unique serial number, and witnesses to the destruction process. The certificate serves as proof of secure shredding for legal compliance.
