Just like it sounds, witnessed shredding is having the ability to observe the shredding process.
It’s usually associated with mobile shredding services, but it can also be available at shredding plants, independent shredding companies, and even some drop off locations.
Different Ways to Witness Your Shredding
There are several ways you can actually witness your shredding project:
Witnessing Shredding From Your Curbside with Mobile Shredding
When you use mobile shredding, a truck will come to you where you can watch your documents go into the shredding truck.
It is very convenient because you don’t have to haul your documents to a facility—they come to you.
Watch From a Closed Circuit TV at a Shredding Facility
With offsite shredding, you may observe through a closed-circuit television as your documents are shredded into indecipherable pieces at their facility.
The Value of Witnessed Shredding
By witnessing your shredding, you can have the peace of mind that your personal or company documents are destroyed while you watch. It also helps to ensure the chain of custody for your files remain intact until you receive a certificate of destruction.
HIPAA laws require proof of secure destruction, so witnessed shredding is perfect.
