Why TrueShred Shreds On-Site

Document security experts suggest that off-site shredding services are subject to greater risks. When sensitive information is taken to a remote location for shredding, the chain-of-custody is broken, materials may be handled and sorted by different parties, and the shredding process may even be subcontracted to a third party.

TrueShred shreds exclusively on-site because we refuse to compromise your security. On-site shredding reduces risks by confining the chain-of-custody to your site. You are even encouraged to witness the entire shredding process via a closed circuit monitor.
