Pickering shredding service

Today, we are going to talk about Blue-Pencil’s Pickering shredding service and how it can help you make sure that your business’s sensitive materials are properly destroyed.

At Blue-Pencil, we have served over 6,000 organizations across Ontario, including Pickering and the surrounding areas, and we would love to help you make sure your business documents and information security is looked after.

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

How Our Pickering Shredding Service Works

Step 1 - Full Assessment

Your Pickering shredding service will begin with a complimentary full assessment of your business. We will take a close look at your:

Once we have completed your assessment we will be able to design a service plan that is tailored to your business and its particular needs. 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 Pickering shredding service.

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

On your predetermined pick-up date and time, one of our highly trained security personnel will come to your facility and pick up your security console to safely shred its contents.

Step 2 - Plan a Collection Schedule

The second step in your Pickering shredding service is to plan and put in place a collection schedule that works best and won’t interfere with your daily workflow.

We will work with you to plan out regular pick-up dates and times that will ensure that your documents don’t pile up and that nothing gets lost or misplaced.

We’ll use the following factors to help us determine the frequency of your pickups:

  • Size of Your Business: Usually (but not always!) larger businesses will require more frequent pick-up
  • Number of Personal Records You Have: The number of personal records you have on file will also affect your pick-up frequency
  • Number of Confidential Documents You Produce: We’ll take into consideration the number of confidential documents you produce on a daily and weekly basis
  • Your Individual Wants and Needs: At Blue-Pencil our goal is to put your wants and needs first; we will always listen to and follow your preferences.

Step 3 - On-Site Shredding

One of Blue-Pencil’s Document Security Representatives will arrive at your facility on your scheduled pick-up date and at the predetermined time to collect your files, documents, and other materials that have been deposited inside your security console.

Only our thoroughly trained security representatives will be able to access the materials inside your console, so you can be assured that your confidential information is 100% secure.

All of our employees need to go through extensive security training and a comprehensive screening process. This can give you the confidence that you need that all of your company’s records are completely secure. If you would like to know more about the certifications that our staff must have, click here.

The following video will show you the actual process of picking up your security console so you can better know what to expect.

All of our employees are highly trained so you can feel confident that your sensitive information will be secure

Your sensitive materials will be carefully taken to our mobile shredding unit that will be parked outside. Your materials will be immediately destroyed by our representative. Your documents will never leave your premises and will be immediately shredded inside our mobile shredding unit. This process ensures the total security of your information.


Step 4 - Certification

Once all of your materials have been securely shredded inside our mobile unit, we will present you with a Certificate of Destruction. We issue this certificate so that you have proof and can rest assured that all of your private company information has been completely and properly disposed of.

We go out of our way to ensure that all of your valuable information is kept confidential. This is because Blue-Pencil understands how important your customers’ and staff’s personal and private information is to your company.
