Shredding Services

Shredding Services. FTC Received 2.2 Million Fraud Reports from Consumers in 2020 and consumers reported losing more than $3.3 billion to fraud in 2020, up from $1.8 billion in 2019. Nearly $1.2 billion of losses reported last year were due to imposter scams. Fraud has cost consumers $3.5 billion in losses. Account takeovers have increased 72% with 40 percent of the fraudulent activity taking place within a day of the initial takeover. A document and product destruction service like ours can help protect your business, your customers, and your employees.

While there are a lot of reasons to use shredding services to protect client/customer information, there should also be a focus on protecting company proprietary data. Stolen information about your business could lead to ruin. Breaches cost companies $445 billion in 2019 and protecting internal information has become part of doing business.

There are several state and federal laws with compliance requirements for sensitive information as well as proof of destruction. Whether a company has paper documents and/or digital that has reached end-of-life, take the stress, and worry away by contracting with a licensed, trained, and certified organization such as Healthcare Waste Management to ensure that all data sources are destroyed.

One-Time Purge Shredding

Shredding Services. Under some circumstances, a company may require a one-time purge. This can occur in a situation where there has been a buildup of documents and a decision was made for shredding due to expense of storing them, the relocation of a business, or the documents have reached their end-of-life cycle. One-time purge shredding can take care of the paper or digital destruction when a company needs them and is typically scheduled on average around one time per year. It is especially helpful when a company is using an offsite storage area for documents. Not only is this costly, but it increases the chance of access by potentially unscrupulous individuals for theft. The advantages of a one-time purge are that it reinforces better document management, offers improved security, and helps to reduce human error.

A phone call to our professional staff to discuss your paper/digital volume and type and we can coordinate the best date/time for pickup and shredding. Our licensed and certified drivers will arrive and pickup the specified items. We use high tech shredders that reduce everything so that it is unrecognizable. Healthcare Waste Management supplies our clients with a certification of destruction which is a requirement for some businesses and is useful for audits and legal inquiries.

All drivers and staff are employed by Healthcare Waste Management and we own and operate all our trucks and destruction facilities. We believe in transparency, so there are never any middlemen or hidden charges.

Recurring Shredding Services

Almost every business finds itself swimming in documents and paperwork that requires filing and storage. Even the best organizations can slip when it comes to some confidential information for either the company or the clients. The overwhelming volume of paper can lead to accidental breaches, leaks, and even theft. Instead of worrying about potential compliance problems, a company should be focused on the daily business at hand. Using recurring shredding services is also another added reason for customers to feel confident in doing business with you because they know their information will be safe.

The best method to ensure that the paperwork does not fall into the wrong hands is to coordinate recurring shredding services. Reliable and licensed companies such as Healthcare Waste Management will work with your organization to arrange security containers that are picked up at your convenience. Our trained drivers will arrive at the agreed upon day and time and, using high tech shredders, will reduce all documents so that they are illegible and could never be used for any illicit purpose.

Hard Drive Destruction Services

As a society we depend upon the digital information that is stored and maintained on computer hard drives. We devote entire IT departments to making sure that the data is safe and accessed by only those that are given proper credentials. This information is the lifeblood of most companies and yet there does come a time when the technology is outdated and has reached end-of-life or that a business makes the decision to upgrade to more efficient and improved devices and networks. When that time arrives, many organizations are at a loss as to what to do with the old technologies and this is when they turn to professional companies such as Healthcare Waste Management for hard drive destruction services.

Leaving information on a hard drive, even when a company “thinks” they have deleted it is an open invitation for hackers. The only true method to ensure that proprietary and confidential data cannot be accessed is total hard drive destruction. This process requires specialized equipment that pulverizes the devices so that they cannot be accessed under any circumstances.

Our trained and certified drivers maintain ultimate security in picking up and transporting all hard drives. They are employed by Healthcare Waste Management, arrive in our trucks, and take the technologies to our company-owned destruction facilities.

For others, they may have equipment or products that involve dangerous elements that could be harmful to people or the environment and they must coordinate product destruction that complies with state and federal laws. Whether dealing with old, outdated, or hazardous items, no matter what the size or volume, businesses will need to coordinate product destruction with a professional, licensed, and accredited company such as Healthcare Waste Management.

E-Waste Recycling

E-waste recycling has become the next level in environmental awareness. With the continual increase of upgraded and new technologies, it makes sense to take those that are out of date or being transitioned to a condition where their parts can be reused or recycled in a sustainable way. Today’s technologies contain a variety of valuable parts that are both complex and expensive. E-waste recycling disassembles and removes anything that can be used or refurbished to create another product. The process involved in e-waste recycling is complex and requires the services of a knowledgeable and professional company such as Healthcare Waste Disposal.

One of the benefits of e-waste recycling is that it helps to eliminate hazardous waste from technologies, including carcinogens and heavy metals from entering landfills, the atmosphere, or our waterways. As part of environmentally friendly efforts e-waste recycling also helps to comply with many of the worlds sustainable recycling laws.

Electronics Destruction Service

The landscape of business today involves an incredible amount of electronics. Whether a company is large or small they find that they have several devices that hold proprietary and confidential information. Inevitably the time comes to upgrade, update, or just get rid of devices that are no longer needed. The problem that company’s face with many state and federal compliance laws requires that they use an electronics destruction service such as Healthcare Waste Management.

Data thieves know that too many businesses are naïve about the proper methods of getting rid of electronics. In the past they accessed technologies that were donated or simply when the company thought they had “erased” the information. In other cases, a business was not aware that certain devices had memory cards and in giving them away they opened the door to breaches and leaks which resulted in lawsuits.

Healthcare Waste Management is knowledgeable on all state and federal compliance laws and we will consult with your organization to discuss your needs. We advise our clients on the various devices that may contain critical data and could place them at risk if they are not properly destroyed.
