Oakville Shredding Service
How an Oakville Shredding Service Works
Blue-Pencil’s Office Shredding Program begins with a full assessment of your current policies and procedures for security, legal compliance, and cost efficiency.
Once we have determined what can stay and what can go, a security console will be delivered to allow for the safe deposit of your most confidential documents that are to be sent for shredding.
Simply deposit your documents into the security consoles, and the rest is on us!
We will work with you to set a collection schedule that works best for you and your business. At the appointed time, we will come to your facility and collect the material from the security consoles.
Please note: all of our Security Representatives are highly skilled and trained in the safe handling of your confidential materials.
Your confidential information is securely transported to our mobile shredding unit, where it’s destroyed right in the truck by an industrial shredder. This means that your documents never even leave your property – you can watch the whole process!
Once all of your documents have been shredded, we provide you with a Certificate of Destruction. It is issued immediately after each service.
When you shred with Blue-Pencil, you can feel good knowing that you are helping the environment! All of the shredded material is recycled at the end of each day into reusable household goods. You can learn more about our environmental program here.

Shredding Is Important Because Privacy Matters
Canada privacy laws for businesses and corporations are summarized by PIPEDA (the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act). This act outlines rules for organizations regarding personal information that businesses are required to follow, and a big part of PIPEDA revolves around the proper destruction of personal and confidential information.
Under Schedule 1, 4.5.3: “Personal information that is no longer required to fulfil the identified purposes should be destroyed, erased, or made anonymous. Organizations shall develop guidelines and implement procedures to govern the destruction of personal information” – PIPEDA Act – Justice Laws Website
If you don’t have a shredding program, you’re at risk of information leaks or even cybersecurity breaches. Failing to comply with PIPEDA can result in audits, enforced compliance agreements, or even litigation.
Records or documents that contain confidential information should, therefore, be securely stored. When no longer in use, these records should be properly disposed of in the most secure manner possible to ensure compliance.
Secure information destruction protects you from privacy law infringement.
