On-Site Mobile Shredding Process
Blue-Pencil’s NAID AAA certified mobile on-site shredding process reduces your security risk by ensuring all confidential materials are destroyed on your premises by bonded, uniformed and photo ID’d Security Representatives onboard our state-of-the art mobile shredding trucks. By giving you the ability to witness your shredding service via closed circuit monitor, and by providing an auditable Certificate of Destruction after each shred, we end the chain-of-custody right on-site with you.
How On-Site Shredding Works
On your service day, our Security Representatives collect your confidential information into a lockable mobile security bin and transport to the shredding truck parked outside. During the entire process, your material is never directly handled by our Technicians. The security bin is automatically lifted by a hydraulic arm inside the truck and contents deposit into onboard industrial shredder. Your material is destroyed into small cross cut pieces, which are mixed with other shredded material that cannot be reconstructed.
Office Shredder vs Shredding Service
Smaller businesses believe that purchasing a paper shredder to use in the office is sufficient to guarantee document security in their business. Unfortunately, this is not often the case, as employees are either too busy or unwilling to stand over the paper shredder and spend the time to shred all the confidential paper that management may desire to be shredded. This lack of willingness or time often leads to paper remaining un-shredded or discarded into the trash, ultimately reducing the security of your organization’s confidential documents.
Contrary to on site shredding, in-house shredding uses valuable employee time, stealing focus away from core business activities. Leaving “to shred or not to shred” decisions up to staff creates higher potential for employee error or breaches of confidentiality, and does not provide any independent certification that sensitive information has been professionally destroyed. Office shredders are messy, require maintenance, have limited capacity and require organizations to complete an extra step by putting the shredded material in the trash or recycling stream.
That’s why smart businesses use a professional document destruction service to effectively eliminate this problem. Blue-Pencil’s secure paper shredding services destroy the documents to the highest level of security necessary. It is a very convenient process and you can even watch your documents being destroyed on the closed circuit camera mounted on our truck.
Choosing our service for your information destruction helps your business meet federal and provincial legislative Privacy Act requirements. Part of our shredding service is a Certificate of Destruction after each service visit from our shredding professionals. This certificate documents that your confidential information has been shredded and properly destroyed prior to being recycled.
In addition to being more secure than having an in-office shredding machine, you and your staff save your valuable time and money. Secure professional shredding trucks destroy thousands of pounds of paper per hour, and our service professionals are quickly in and out of your office.
