Top 3 Reasons to Hire a Document Destruction Company

Top 3 Reasons to Hire a Document Destruction Company. If you’re like most business owners, you’re probably looking for ways to save money. There are many ways to do this. One common way is to invest in document destruction services. Document destruction services can help your business by reducing paper waste and saving you money on employee shredding costs.

When you hire a document destruction company, you eliminate the need to shred and dispose of your documents yourself. You can also play an important role in reducing the risk of identity theft by disposing of sensitive information in a safe secure manner. It’s easier than you think to put yourself and your business at risk for theft and fraud by not properly destroying all your documents.

The following post outlines the top three reasons why it’s important to hire a document destruction company.

  1. Reduction. Paper waste reduction, the average office produces 30 pounds of paper waste per week. With our document destruction service, workers will have a direct impact on reducing paper waste. Our document destruction service offers recycling instead of throwing them away, saving all businesses from paying landfill fees.
  2. Environment. We offer environmentally friendly solutions. We work with recycling companies to dispose of paper after it has been destroyed. We also offer bulk cardboard recycling. This helps save landfill space and reduces your carbon footprint.
  3. Safety. It’s not safe to get rid of documents on your own, because there’s no guarantee that they will be completely destroyed in an appropriate manner. Hiring a professional makes it safe and easy to get rid of sensitive documents in the safest way possible.

There are more reasons but reducing paper waste, the environment, and safety are our top reasons. Peace of mind, convenience, and being a cost-effective solution are also good reasons to hire a professional shredding company.

Knowing you have a paper trail to prove your documents were properly destroyed can offer peace of mind but can also save you money incase of a lawsuit. A simple office shredder provides none of that. It is a waste of employee’s time and provides no protection if you are in a situation where you need to prove certain documents were properly destroyed.

It is estimated a professional shredding service will cost about half of what it cost to shred in-house. Noise, taking an employee away from their regular duties and lack of security that comes with an in-house shredder are all factors.

The convenience of having a professional document destruction company is allowing your employees to focus on their job at hand vs trying to figure out what and when to shred. With a professional shredding company, they simply place the documents in a secure, locked shredding console prior to destruction.

Any business large or small should have a professional shredding service. Keeping your sensitive business information secure, your employee’s confidential information secure, and just as important your client’s information secure, should be a top priority for any business.
