One Time Shredding Service
One Time Shredding Service
Not every organization has the volume of documents that require scheduled shredding services. While many businesses may have to comply with rigorous laws regarding the safety and security of documents, there are a variety of circumstances that can lend to the need of one-time shredding services.
Almost all areas have at least one location that a company can load up and take their documents to a shredder, but this takes time, labor, and does not ensure that any of the proprietary information is totally secure. A professional shredding service will schedule a single pickup, coordinated around your convenience, and guarantee complete shredding with security.
Reasons for One Time Shredding:
- End of life cycle for tax records: The IRS (Internal Revenue Service) requires that a business maintain their tax records for a period of three years. While many companies may keep them for five years, these documents take up storage space and can be a focus for a potential security breach. Scheduling a one-time shredding can take care of those records that are no longer needed.
- Relocating to new digs: Nothing says “we keep too much paper” until the time comes to move your business. It is typically during a relocation that employees and management realize that there is no longer a need for so many of the old documents that they just didn’t previously get rid of.
- Old technologies: There are quite a few businesses that have “that room” where they keep old technology devices that are out of date or need to be repaired as a “just in case we need them” idea. Many of these devices contain proprietary information both past and present and will be required to be destroyed to maintain security.
- Corporate consolidation: It is quite common in today’s business world for companies to be bought, sold, or merge with other companies. Logos and brands change and with new identities comes the requirement to get rid of anything that represents the old.
- The end of litigation or audit: Anyone that has been through either a litigation or audit knows that the entire process generates an incredible volume of paperwork. Once it is all over you will want to have all documents shredded as part of closure and security.
- Annual cleanouts: One of the habits of some of the smarter companies has been to organize an annual cleanout for the entire business. Employees and management examine all of the documents and devices that are in-house and stored and make decisions on what needs to be shredded and destroyed.
