Off site shredding is simply the operation of taking materials to secure location and shredding them. This process is compliant with every current federal and state privacy laws including FACTA. This option is common because it is generally cheaper to shred at a plant than at your location. It has a high level of security since only authorized employees are allowed to come in contact with the material or even be in the plant.
Uniformed security professionals transport your files with a locked truck, protecting it until it is delivered at a secure shredding plant. Upon the delivery of the files for destruction, the boxes are weighed. Once recorded, they are then staged to begin the shredding work. The material is fed directly into the industrial shredder processing about 20,000 lbs an hour. A certificate of destruction is issued with the total weight that assures that the materials were shredded.
Once materials are shredded, they are baled and shipped directly to a paper company where the material is pulped to make new paper.
