Why Product Destruction is Crucial for Your Business

When most people think of secure shredding services, they often think about destroying important papers and confidential documents. After all, files and folders often contain sensitive data like account numbers or personal information. Chances are though, there are a number of other items lying around that put your company at risk of a data breach. From products you produce, ship, or manufacture, to staff IDs, uniforms, training manuals, and other proprietary materials, there are a number of things you should think twice about throwing away.

What products put your company at risk?

Your company produces a number of materials that are exclusive to your brand and your business, many of which you would not want to fall into the wrong hands. Obvious items include key cards and ID badges, which could put your physical security at risk, but there are a number of other products that could leave your business vulnerable. Items like blueprints, outdated promotional materials, official packaging, and other branded products could leave you vulnerable to corporate espionage, fraud, or misrepresentation.

Dumpster divers, thieves, and disgruntled employees can all target your business using unsecured products. Whether it’s posing as an official representative of your company, or the illicit sale of recalled or damaged products, the risks posed to your business are real. Secure product destruction helps protect your customers from blackmarket resellers, reduces your liability, and offers an extra layer of physical security.

Prevent Unauthorized Access

What happens to company ID badges when employees leave? Where do old uniforms go when they’re no longer needed? The dumpster is the last place you want to toss items like these, and after a while, storing things on-site really starts to take up space. Secure product destruction services are the ideal solution to product disposal, and it’s the only way to guarantee your unwanted items don’t end up in the wrong hands.

Protect your business, and your brand, with routinely scheduled product destruction. Make sure to include all damaged, expired, or defective products, as well as any specialized packaging. Damaged or outdated products that are not destroyed by the manufacturer often end up on the black market. For example, defective products sent to a landfill may be taken out illegally and resold. Because these goods are usually faulty or otherwise substandard, consumers may associate your brand with these low quality or dangerous products. Secure product destruction is one way to protect your brand and prevent unauthorized products from ending up on the market.
