The Importance of Shredding Your Documents

Criminals leverage your confidential business documents to steal sensitive information about your organization, staff and customers. Professional shredding services are the only way to safeguard your paperwork and mixed media materials.

TrueShred provides your organization with secure consoles and bins to deposit your stockpile files, records, paperwork, and mixed media materials like DVDs, CDs, flash drives and hard drives. Our highly trained team collects these containers from you and securely destroys them curbside at your facility. Our secure chain of custody and superior destruction procedures ensure your data does not get into unauthorized hands.

Our One-Time Paper Shredding Services

Our one-time shredding service is ideal for businesses that don’t have regular shredding requirements but need to securely dispose of many papers quickly. Bulk shredding services are also the perfect solution for companies dealing with a high volume of sensitive documents, like scanning businesses.

On-site bulk shredding ensures records are destroyed without leaving your facility, and a Certificate of Destruction will assist with HIPAA compliance recordkeeping.
