Posted by Dustin Rushing on Dec 10, 2019 9:00:00 AM

Have you ever wondered whether your shredded documents are being compromised? As a business, protecting the sensitive information of your customers and your proprietary information is key. Having an onsite shredding solution can help alleviate any questions and provide peace of mind. Mobile shredding companies come to you. The company can leave a lock box to house the documents that need to be shredded, and then on shredding day, set up outside so you can have an employee monitor and confirm the documents have been shredded and disposed. How does this work? Mobile shredding trucks are outfitted with the latest technology to keep your records and sensitive documents confidential. Most trucks are locked while the documents are being shredded, but there is a screen on the outside where the employee can see what is happening in real time. From paper documents to hard drives and electronics, a professional firm handles it all.

Those pieces are mixed with others’ documents and then baled before sending to a recycling company.
