What Is Electronic Media?

Electronic Media is defined as any electronically generated storage device that is used to record information, including but not limited to: hard disks/ hard drives, magnetic tapes, compact disks, video tapes, audio tapes, and removable storage such as floppy and zip disks. If your media disposal process includes erasing, reformatting, or wiping your hard drives, your customers’ and your company’s reputation are still vulnerable. Total destruction by shredding is the only way to ensure data security for  electronic media.

The Advantages of Professional Media & Electronics Shredding in the DC Area

There are several benefits to having a professional shredder destroy your media rather than doing it yourself.

  • TrueShred will issue a certificate of destruction, certifying the secure onsite destruction of your media.
  • Computer backups, VHS tapes, and cassettes are difficult to destroy by hand. Why waste your valuable time on this laborious process?
  • On-site media destruction ensures the complete security of the shredding process. When you want to be absolutely certain that the data contained on these items is completely non-retrievable, have them destroyed by TrueShred.

Why Destroy Uniforms & ID Badges?

Don’t put your company or workplace at risk. Simply throwing away old uniforms and ID badges can make them available to anyone who takes the time to go through your trash. You don’t want these items to get into the wrong hands and possibly damage your reputation. Our high-powered mobile shredders can destroy work uniforms, ID badges, and other proprietary items that you don’t want members of the public to be able to access.

DC-Area Mobile Shredding Services

TrueShred comes to your business or office as scheduled for full document destruction. We offer scheduled, ongoing service as well as one-time service.

Benefits of mobile media shredding services include:

  • Ease – You don’t have to break CDs or smash tapes and backups. Our shredding truck destroys them easily, saving you time and annoyance.
  • Convenience – We come to you. You don’t have to pack and transport boxes of media—we do it all, at your location!
  • Security – With our secure chain of custody, you don’t have to worry about your personal information being accessed from the trash. Our uniformed employees will securely transport your sensitive media items to the shred truck for on-site destruction.
  • Time and labor savings – TrueShred’s service is more cost-effective than in-house shredding. Manual shredding is time-consuming labor. An employee’s time is better spent fulfilling other duties.

Why Does TrueShred Shred On-Site Exclusively?

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.
