Today, we’ll take a look at Blue-Pencil’s Cambridge shredding service, and how your business can ensure its sensitive materials are properly destroyed.

At Blue-Pencil, we have served over 6,000 organizations across Ontario, including Cambridge and the surrounding area, and we would love to help you make sure your business documents and information security is taken care of.

We’ll take a closer look at how Blue Pencil’s shredding and information security services in Cambridge work. Let’s get started.

How Our Cambridge Shredding Service Works

Step 1 - Full Assessment

Blue Pencil will begin your Cambridge shredding service by completing a complimentary full assessment of your business, taking a close look at your:

Doing this assessment will enable us to design the best service for your business. As part of this thorough assessment, we’ll look at:

  • Which of your documents and records can stay on file
  • Which of your documents and records must stay on file
  • Which of your documents and records are no longer needed
  • How often your information will need to be shredded

Once we’ve completed your assessment, you can decide whether or not to take advantage of Blue-Pencil’s Cambridge shredding service.

If you do decide to work with us, we will provide you with a security console. This is a secure bin that your staff can use to safely deposit all of your sensitive and confidential documents that you need shredded.

On your scheduled pick-up date, one of our trained security personnel will come to you your office and pick up this console to safely shred its contents.

Step 2 - Plan a Collection Schedule

Our next step in your Cambridge shredding service is to plan and put in place a collection schedule that will work well for your needs. We will work with you to plan out regular pick-up dates that will ensure your documents don’t pile up and that nothing gets lost or misplaced.

To figure out how often we need to come, we’ll take into consideration the following factors:

  • Size: Usually larger businesses will require more frequent pick-up, however, that isn’t always the case
  • Number of Personal Records: The amount of personal records you have on file, will also affect your pick-up frequency
  • Number of Confidential Documents: We’ll take into consideration the amount of confidential documents you produce on a daily and weekly basis produced on a daily/weekly basis
  • Your Individual Wants and Needs: Blue-Pencil always strives to put your wants and needs first; we will always listen to and follow your preferences.
