CalendarBusinesses have a responsibility to protect the private information they collect and use. With all of the duties that go into running a business, you don’t want to worry about sensitive information being misused. Professional shredding services are designed to help businesses destroy their information in the safest way possible.

Scheduled shredding ensures that your documents never accumulate past a certain point, minimizing the risk of valuable information being lost, stolen, or misplaced. It is the best way to secure your paperwork to prevent fraud and identity theft. Professional services also keep you within legal compliance of the many privacy laws governing business and consumer information.

Shred Nations partners with reliable shredding companies that comply with HIPAA and FACTA regulations to accommodate the requirements of businesses in all industries. Businesses across the nation have trusted us with their shredding solutions for more than 30 years. We are committed to serving all of your shredding needs with high-quality options and flexible services. 

How Scheduled Shredding Services Work

Choose a Document Shredding Schedule

The first step is to determine how often you need shredding. Then, you can work with your provider to set up a pre-determined schedule, so they can stop by your location and empty your collection bins regularly. The services can be scheduled on a weekly, biweekly, monthly, or quarterly basis.

Choose Your Secure Shred Bins

Secure shred bins protect your documents between shredding sessions. The bins allow you to safely store your documents, so daily shredding is not required. We offer a variety of sizes and styles to make document collection simple and efficient. All of our bins can be locked and are equipped with one-way intake slots for filling the bin throughout the time allotted before pickup. 

We have three main categories of bins:

  • Personal shred containers: Small containers that can fit under a desk or be placed on a counter top, best for low-volume workspaces.
  • Standard shred containers: Stand-alone bins that can hold 75 or 100 pounds of papers, designed for the average office.
  • Shredding carts and totes: Large, wheel-equipped bins with 32 to 175 gallon capacities, best for high-volume workspaces

When selecting your bins you should carefully consider your paper waste production rate, how many bins you will need, and where you would like them placed in the office.

Mobile Shredding or Off Site Shredding

Shred Nations offers two options for completing your scheduled shredding, mobile and off site services. Both services are secure and compliant, but offer their own unique benefits. 

Mobile Shredding

Mobile shredding allows you to witness the shredding process from beginning to end. We send a mobile shred truck to your location and shred your documents entirely onsite. This service is best for mid-sized shredding projects under 300 pounds of paper. It is a super convenient service that completes your shredding with minimal disruption to your day. 

Off Site Shredding

Off site shredding occurs in a local, monitored facility. We will pick up your documents and safely transport them for destruction. Off site shredding is the most affordable service for high-volume shredding (300 pounds of paper or more). We monitor the chain of custody throughout collection and transport for additional security and peace of mind.

Receive a Certificate of Destruction

A certificate of destruction is included with every shredding service. The certificate verifies compliant destruction of your documents for your records. This is important for businesses to create a security system with minimized liability in the event of a data breach. 

The certificate is created immediately following your service and includes important information from the shredding process. It includes the time and location of shredding, a unique serial number, the chain of custody, and more. You will receive your certificate of destruction on the same day your service is completed.
