Spring Cleaning Your Home or Office?

How Shredding Can Help

It’s that time of year, spring is in the air and summer’s just around the corner. For many of us, that means spring cleaning our offices and our homes. Decluttering and throwing out unwanted items allows you to free up space and get things more organized. An important part of spring cleaning should include getting rid of old documents and paperwork, but this part of the process must be done properly to protect you and your business from fraud or ID theft. Take a look:

Your Trash Can Become Someone Else’s Treasure

Although it’s tempting to just toss old papers into the trash or recycling bin, the reality is that anything you throw away could be valuable to a thief looking to steal your identity. Old papers, even with the smallest amount of information, can be just what thieves need. Shredding is the most secure way to protect yourself from becoming a victim. When using a professional mobile shredding company, you can rest assured that documents are permanently destroyed. This means that they cannot be reconstructed in any way–unlike retail or home shredding machines.

Papers that contain any of the information listed below should never be thrown away in the regular trash or recycled:

  • Name
  • Address
  • Bank Account or Credit Card Account Numbers
  • Health Information
  • School Information
  • Receipts
  • Insurance Papers
  • Work or Personnel Records
  • Boarding Passes
  • Tickets

Why On-Site Mobile Shredding Should Be Part of Your Spring Cleaning

Once you’ve decided to spring clean your home or office, it’s crucial to partner with a trusted shredding and destruction provider to ensure you are protected against ID theft or Corporate ID theft. Professional shredding companies can provide the following:

Onsite Mobile Shredding

This means that you are able to witness the entire process, which gives you the peace of mind that your confidential information has not been breached. After the shredding process is complete, you receive a certificate of destruction.

Efficiency & Speed

Professional shredding trucks are equipped with the most powerful shredding machinery which permanently destroys your documents within minutes. They can also shred a large amount of documents at a time.

Secure Shredding & Recycling

Once your documents have been safely and permanently destroyed, the shredding company will securely recycle the remains. The recycling process includes baling the remains and sending the bales to a paper mill where they will ultimately be recycled into new, usable paper.
