Any medical office, legal firm, or accounting firm can really benefit by using a local shredding service. Each of these industries have different retention schedules and release of information regulations. If after a certain period the client no longer wants a file or box it must be disposed of or shredded properly. The key to proper record disposal is to have these documents not end up in a dumpster or trash can.
Responsible document disposal is achieved by hiring a reputable local document shredding service with the proper chain of custody from pick up to destruction. Ultimately Embassy utilizes a 100% recycled system in which shredded paper is baled and sent to a paper mill in Mississippi. Baled, shredded paper is then recycled into napkins, paper towels and the like.
Media destruction is not discussed in the same regard as paper shredding but as we evolve media shredding is increasingly becoming a huge liability if not disposed of properly. Embassy shreds all digital media types.
Most commonly requested electronic items to be shredded are:
Hard drive destruction
Hard drive shredding
Flash drive destruction
Hard drive recovery is possible with almost any used hard drive. Throwing away a hard drive can expose all your data and lead to eminent privacy data breach and ultimately your identity theft. Several companies that can assist with this are Life Lock, Aura and Identity guard.
Document destruction and media or electronic media destruction can cut any potential privacy breach out. Several of the types of documents we shred for clients are:
Legal file shredding
Tax Document shredding
Medical file shredding
Financial statement shredding
Bank statement shredding
Embassy also offers drop off shredding service at our locations. Junk mail shredding is a cinch if using our drop off shredding service. Usually runs around $30 and includes 100 lbs. of paper documents.
To keep your data protected use a shredder service near me. Embassy will provide your home office shredding container for free and then get you set up on a recurring shredding schedule that fits your schedule and budget.
