End of Year Shredding Purge

Why Your Business Could Benefit

As we get ready to ring in the New Year, it’s a great time to review your company’s document processes, including retention and destruction policies. Because this time of year is typically very busy, it’s not uncommon to relax on shredding protocols–saving expired, unnecessary and unwanted documents for a later date. And, if your business is not utilizing a shredding company for regular shredding, you likely have a large amount of paperwork sitting around that could pose risks to your organization.

What Are the Benefits of a Year-End Purge?

For businesses of all sizes, purging outdated and unneeded documents can provide many benefits, including: 

Reducing risk of security breaches

Leaving expired documents piled up in your office creates a security risk to your organization. Documents that contain even the smallest amount of information can be just enough for ID thieves to steal your information.

Reducing clutter

If you haven’t partnered up with a shredding and destruction company, odds are you have large amounts of paperwork laying around. Whether you have a file room or are stacking up files full of paper, a year-end purge can reduce clutter in your workspace.

Ensuring compliance with state and federal regulations

Remaining compliant with local, state and federal regulations is key to protecting your company against hefty fines and liability. Complying with mandates about document retention and protecting personally identifiable information of your customers, vendors and staff is crucial to your success and is easier when you purge documents at the end of the year.

Reducing Risk of Fire

Storing large amounts of unneeded paperwork can be a fire hazard.

Schedule a Year-End Purge

If you are not shredding on a regular basis, now is a good time to schedule a shred to eliminate excess paperwork that can pose risks to your business.
