We will work with your staff to determine the shredding frequency and collection times that best suit your needs. Then we provide you with as many security containers as you may need at no charge. At the appointed time, a mobile unit comes to you, and the documents to be shredded are discretely removed and destroyed by our trained technicians on your premises. On-Site mobile shredding allows you to watch the process if you like. Upon completion, you are issued A Certificate of Destruction certifying the time and date your materials were destroyed. We then transport it to a secure recycling facility where it is remanufactured into new paper products.
ShredAssured also offers Off-Site shredding as an economical alternative for clients that do not require destruction done at their location.

No need to remove paper clips, staples, binder clips or other fasteners. We shred everything. The materials are destroyed beyond recognition, reconstruction and readability at our secure warehouse under strictly controlled conditions. Security cameras monitor the process and you are welcome to come by and witness the destruction first hand.

All businesses have occasion to discard confidential data. Customer lists, price lists, sales statistics, drafts of bids, correspondence, and even memos contain information about business activity which would interest any competitor. Every business is also entrusted with information that must be kept private. Employees and customers have the legal right to have this data protected. If your company has 5 employees or more, you will not only have discarded materials for periodic file purges, you will also be producing incidental paperwork on a daily basis that need to be properly destroyed.
This is the one of the most common question we are asked. On-Site or Off-Site is a decision you must make. It usually depends on your comfort level or your specific compliance regulations. There are advantages to either service.
• The primary advantage to On-Site shredding is that it is more convenient to observe
the shredding process. This allows you to physically witness your material being
• Off-Site Shredding is every bit as secure as On-Site. Many large companies including banks and hospitals, where parking is at a premium, insist that their materials be shredded Off-Site. The primary advantage to this method is the lower cost.
With either method, you are assured of the highest level of security and peace of mind knowing your confidential materials will be completely destroyed beyond recognition and readability. At ShredAssured, we leave nothing to read - so you leave nothing to chance!
For security. Recycling services are not designed to provide security. Recycling services mostly use open collection containers which are accessible to anyone; staff, janitors, etc. Generally, the employees of recycling service companies are not security screened personnel. Your confidential documents are transported by truck in whole form to a facility for processing and sorting before shredding. It is then taken to and stored at unsecured warehouses, which are accessible to the public, and the paper is sorted for grade. The courts have ruled that once you place your material into the trash can, recycling receptacle, or dumpster, you lose all privacy rights to that information, no matter how sensitive or proprietary it is. The laws on public domain protect the people taking the information - NOT YOU! You may even be held liable for negligence if the discarded material does harm to someone. Eliminate the risk. Shred your confidential documents with ShredAssured. With the development of the Health Information Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) and the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act of 1999 (also known as the Financial Services Modernization Act), shredding of documents has become the recommended method for the handling of sensitive documentation.
Money! It will cost you 3 to 5 times more to shred in-house than to have a shredding service. Amortization of a shredder, staff time, square footage for the operation, maintenance, power costs and disposal costs all add up to much more than we charge - and we do all of the work! In 15 minutes we can destroy what it would take an office shredder days to do. In-house shredding will not handle large volumes and may prompt employees to circumvent the destruction process.
We will shred any color or type of paper, including file folders, computer printouts, brochures, flyers, bound reports, coupons, printing mistakes, over-runs, tapes, floppy discs, CDs, DVDs, microfilm, microfiche, X-rays, Mylar and other forms of confidential and proprietary material. There is no need to remove paper clips, staples, or rubber bands. We are first and foremost a security shredding company, not a recycler who has decided to be in the shredding business, however we recycle all shredded waste that is recyclable.
Different types of records need to be retained for different time periods. The time documents should be kept depends on appropriate laws, IRS and governmental regulations and third-party requirements.
We can drop off as many security containers as you think you will need, free of charge, for you to use to sort your files.

Purge Services and Residential Shredding are typically charged by the box or per pound. It is best to have a representative come out to evaluate your needs and provide you with an accurate quote.
