What Happens After You Shred?
Thursday, October 27, 2016

You’ve brought in the experts to shred your confidential documents, but then you wonder—what happens to all that paper now? Where does it go?
The short answer is that all shredded paper is recycled.

All paper is made of fibers. The longer the fiber, the more valuable the paper is during the recycling process. The fibers in office paper are long and therefore more valuable as recyclable material and can be used for a wider variety of products. As paper is recycled over and over, the fibers become shorter and are then used for tissue or toilet paper.

Shredding documents shortens the fibers in office paper, which makes it mixed-grade paper, still recyclable but not accepted by all recycling service providers.
This is another great reason to use Document Destruction instead of dealing with shredding your personal or business documents yourself. In addition to shredding your documents on site, we also handle the recycling process so you never have the inconvenient discovery that your recycling service provider won’t take your shredded paper.

Otherwise your shredded paper could end up in the landfill instead of being reused.

We understand your desire to protect the confidentiality of your company or personal life as well as the environment, which is why we make sure that shredding sensitive documents is easy, safe, and environmentally friendly. The Document Destruction team has never had a security breach, so you know your company is in good hands when you hire our professionals to shred your documents. And we work directly with local municipalities to give your old documents new life through recycling.
If you’re interested in protecting both your company’s confidential information and our environment, give us a call. We’ll help you discover the reasons why hiring Document Destruction to handle your company’s shredding services is a smart move.

"Four Reasons To Use Document Destruction"

Don't get us wrong, using your own paper shredder is better than nothing, but organizations
that implement internal shredding programs are not being as frugal or as secure as they think they are.

   1. We shred your documents on-site in front of your eyes into confetti.

   2. Document Destruction is NAID CERTIFIED & ACCREDITED for
       document shredding. Document Destruction is audited annually to
       verify that every employee is uniformed, bonded, I.D. badged,
       drug tested, criminally background checked and is fully trained in
       the latest security measures.

   3. In addition to general liability insurance, Document Destruction has
       PROFESSIONAL LIABILITY COVERAGE to protect you against the following:
         • Unauthorized access to or theft of sensitive documents
         • Intentional acts by my employees
         • Negotiable instruments falling into the wrong hands
         • Identity theft stemming from information on sensitive documents
         • Violations of privacy, i.e. involving medical records

   4.  Since starting Document Destruction in 2004, we have NEVER had a
        security breach or had a client's private & confidential documents fall
        into the wrong hands. Secure document destruction is vital to a company's
        survival. This includes trade secrets, customer lists, employee records and
        records that need to be protected as required by federal law. I am personally
        committed to helping protect your firm's information and guarantee that they
        are safe and will never see the light of day.
