What should be destroyed?

With new legislation becoming ever stricter and identity theft on the rise, it is wise to destroy just about everything that is generated and not on a retention schedule. Some examples are:


Memos, price lists, tax records, receipts, letters, any document with social security numbers, visitor logs, training records, etc.

What should we know about selecting a shredding service?

The most important aspect of any service is to verify that they actually do the destruction. One of the best ways to verify this is to contract a company that is AAA Certified and audited by NAID. There are many companies that just collect the materials and then give them to a recycler or do a variety of other things to cut their costs, which ultimately lowers the security of their service.

For one-time purge jobs, can we keep the banker boxes?

Yes, we can dump the contents of the boxes into one of our containers for transport, leaving you with the empty boxes. Cost: $10.

What do you charge for service?

Our pricing is determined by pickup location, volume of material for destruction, and frequency of service. Contact us for a free quote specific to your needs.

What other type of material do you destroy in addition to paper?

For some of our clients we destroy CD’s, video game systems, product samples (hats, clothing, shoes), and computer hard drives.

Should we remove paper clips, fasteners, staples, or binder clips?

Our shredders are equipped to destroy the above-mentioned items with no difficulties.

Can you send someone out to our facility to make recommendations on getting started with a destruction program?

We would be more than happy to directly send a representative to your facility and make suggestions on frequency and the best location for containers. At that time we can explain legislation that directly affects you or your company, and come up with the best way to become compliant.

Shred Works provides certification for all shredding projects, and guarantees that your confidential documents are destroyed on a timely basis and then recycled.
