    FAQ

    Why is shredding so important?

    To protect personal and customer information and identity from theft.

    Why use a service when I can shred myself?

    Using a third-party service provider shifts liability away from your company and leaves your employees free to work on more productive tasks.

    What do you do with the shredded paper?

    All shredded paper is sent to paper mills where it is recycled.

    Do you service low volume businesses?

    Yes. Our minimum service frequency is once per month.

    How do you determine how many consoles we need?

    Our rule of thumb is:
    One console per 20 employees
    Or
    One console per five employees who handle documents daily.
