Paper shredding offers a secure and convenient means of destroying paperwork but it doesn’t actually destroy the paper. Therefore, shredding paper within your own premises means that you still have to find some way of having it removed and taken away for recycling.
Using a professional document shredding service not only ensures that all of the information on your paperwork is securely destroyed but it means that the paper will be taken away for recycling once it has been shredded. Protect your reputation and your client relationships as well as the security of your business and the identity of your employees by using professional document shredding.
Professional paper shredding companies can usually be tasked to come to your premises every week or every fortnight rather than waiting until you have amassed a large amount of paper.
This means that you will not have to leave bags of paper lying around. Considering how easily paper catches fire and also considering health and safety regulations that dictate trip and slip hazards need to be kept to a minimum, this regular collection should be considered extremely advantageous to your business.
Ensure Your Company And Employee Data Remains Private
A lot of paperwork will contain data and information that is considered sensitive. Account data, expenses receipts, and personnel files are especially sensitive and if any of this is taken it can lead to serious problems for your business or your employees.
Having these files shredded professionally will help prevent data theft and identity theft. It will help ensure that your business and your employees are not put in any undue danger and it will help ensure that your employees continue to be happy working for you. Some company documents are legally required to be shredded securely, and this means crosscut shredding that is offered by a professional shredding company.
Protect Your Customers And Clients
When a client or customer provides you with data they expect that data to be kept safe; they don’t expect it to be stolen or used for any other purposes except those that they give express permission for.
Professional paper shredding services will ensure that every scrap of paper you provide them with is properly disposed of so that the information contained on that paper is gone. Simply throwing the paper away or leaving it for recycling puts your clients in danger and it can lead to damage to your reputation.
Negate The Need To Shred In House
You could buy an office shredder and do the shredding yourself. However, in order to enjoy the same level of security as is offered by a professional company you will need to invest a fair amount in buying an industrial grade shredder.
What’s more, office shredders typically only have a low throughput level and this means that it becomes a very manual task. If you have a lot of waste paper it will take a lot of time to get through the weekly shredding and this is time that you could spend performing other essential tasks.
Shred All Of Your Waste Paper Quickly
The low throughput means that in-house shredding really does take a long time. Even if you use another employee to perform this task for you it means that they will not be able to perform their other tasks.
Paper shredding in this way is tedious and boring, and it will be considered menial by most employees. By having your paperwork shredded you not only protect your reputation and data but you also ensure that paper is shredded quickly, efficiently, effectively, and according to government legislation.
