On-Going or One-Time Document Shredding: Which Is Right for You?

Even in the digital age, fraudsters prey on personally identifiable information from discarded paper documents. Secure Shredding & Recycling understands that data security is a priority for your business. However, finding a service to fit your unique needs can be challenging. Find out whether ongoing or one time document shredding is right for you.

Our one time document shredding service can get rid of old clutter

One Time Document Shredding

With our one time document shredding service, you can eliminate outdated files without needing a long-term contract or commitment. Whether it’s a few pounds of paper or hundreds, our team can accommodate your needs. Additionally, the service offers the same level of security as our other services with the convenience of on-site destruction.

To prepare for a document purge, you just need to collect the files you want destroyed. Don’t worry about removing any staples, clips, or envelopes. Our machines will shred through and sort out the non-paper pieces. When our team arrives, let them know which documents you’d like taken to our mobile shredding trucks. Our team members will shred the files on-site, where you can watch the process in person.

The Benefits of One Time Document Shredding

When to Use One Time Shredding?

Whether for businesses or residents, one time shredding is essential for anyone. If you’re discarding personally identifiable information, our service is for you. Common uses for one time shredding include:

File room cleanouts: File room cleanouts are prime targets for fraudsters. Our services ensure no personally identifiable information can escape during your cleaning process.

Annual file purges: Each year, businesses must remove outdated documents from their storage room. Enlisting a trained shredding specialist frees up your time while making sure all documents are destroyed properly.

Office moves: Whether it’s an at-home office or an entire building, moving and removing documents presents a security risk. One time shredding makes your move safer for you and your employees. 

Ongoing Document Shredding

On-going document shredding involves the regular disposal of documents, papers, and other files. With the many responsibilities of professionals, it can be hard to prioritize document shredding. Luckily, this service provides continuous shredding support without needing to consistently reschedule.

With ongoing shredding, all you need to do is discard your documents in our secure disposal containers. These containers range from small consoles to 96-gallon carts placed as needed throughout your office. A qualified team member will come regularly to bring your documents to our secure disposal site.

Uninvasive Service: Ongoing shredding ensures an unobtrusive experience by destroying your documents at our off-site location. Additionally, our specialists are trained to provide both professional and prompt service so as not to disrupt your workflow.

Who Is Ongoing Shredding For?

Financial Offices: These may be banks, accounting firms, or any other institutions dealing with sensitive financial information.

Medical Providers: Whether it’s an emergency room or supporting office, confidential information must be discarded properly and consistently.
