What to Consider When Outsourcing Your Shredding

Word CONSIDER made with wood building blocks You know you have a responsibility to destroy outdated documents, but sometimes you need help. In this blog, we explain what to consider when outsourcing your shredding.


Partnering with an inexperienced shredding company puts you and your confidential information at risk. Make sure your outsourced shredding partner has long-term experience serving a variety of businesses in your community.

On-Site Shredding

On-site mobile shredding is more secure than off-site shredding. A security-screened professional document destruction expert visits your location in a state-of-the-art mobile shredding vehicle. They collect your documents and take them to the vehicle for on-site shredding. A live video verification system on the mobile shredding truck displays the document destruction process for you to see.

You will never wonder whether your documents were destroyed or not. On-site mobile shredding offers a more comprehensive and secure privacy protection solution for your business.

Compliance Support

Non-compliance with state and federal privacy laws can result in monetary fines and legal action against your business. Not every shredding and destruction company offers compliance support services that supplement your information destruction practices. Partnering with a company that offers information security training for your staff is the best choice.

NAID AAA Certification

Partnering with a NAID AAA Certified provider ensures you receive a secure and ethical data destruction solution. The NAID AAA Certification Program requires that providers meet their high standards in the following areas:

  • Operational security
  • Employee hiring and screening
  • Responsible information disposal
  • Liability insurance

When a NAID member has completed a successful audit by an independent information security professional, they receive a certificate showing their company name and the destruction services they are certified to offer customers.

Range of Solutions

Paper records aren’t the only form of information that requires secure destruction. Find out whether your shredding provider offers media destruction and product destruction services. If they do, you have a comprehensive shredding and destruction solution for your business.

Community Engagement

Strong communities benefit from companies that understand the importance of giving back. A locally-owned shredding company is more likely to support neighborhood charities and initiatives. If you value a strong, healthy community, partner with a shredding and destruction company who cares about the well-being of your city or town.
