How Scheduled Shredding Works
When you decide to use scheduled shredding services, the first step is typically a consultation with the shredding provider. They will assess your specific shredding needs, determine the frequency of service required, and provide you with a customized plan.
The shredding provider will supply secure collection containers, such as locked bins or consoles, for you to place your sensitive documents in. These containers are designed to prevent unauthorized access.
Based on the agreed-upon schedule, the shredding provider will come to your location to collect the filled containers. Alternatively, some providers like PROSHRED® Tampa offer mobile document shredding services, where they shred the documents right on-site using specialized shredding trucks.
Whether your documents are shredded on-site or at a secure facility, the process ensures complete destruction of the documents. Reputable shredding providers use industrial-grade shredders that turn paper into confetti-like pieces, rendering it virtually impossible to reconstruct.
Certificate of Destruction
After each shredding session, you will receive a certificate of destruction. This document serves as proof that your documents were properly destroyed and can be valuable for compliance purposes.
