Where To Shred Personal Documents in Toronto?

Personal documents such as outdated employee information, tax records, and other documents containing confidential information should be properly disposed of. Without proper disposal, you may become a target for problems such as information leaks or even identity theft. In this article, we’ll outline where you can shred personal documents and the pros and cons of each option. Contact the experts at Blue-Pencil today to learn more about secure shredding and information management!

Like many other major cities, Toronto offers a wide variety of options when it comes to shredding your confidential documents. Using an outsourced Secure Shredding Service is the most secure choice.

Shredding services offer highly secure shredding methods

Many data management companies offer secure shredding services for both businesses and individuals looking to shred personal documents. Working with a company that offers secure shredding can help give you peace of mind. Certified technicians safely shred documents, and you will also receive a certificate confirming your secure shred. All documents are recycled after shredding. .

At Blue-Pencil, we offer highly secure business and residential shredding services so that you can shred and dispose of your sensitive information with the same care that large organizations benefit from. Check out this quick video below to learn more about our office shredding program!

At Blue-Pencil, we offer both drop-off shredding services and mobile shredding services so you can choose the method that works best for you and your schedule. If you are more comfortable dropping off, our drop-off shredding centre is located in Oakville – approximately a 30-40 minute drive from Toronto. If you do not want to make the drive to Oakville, you can rely on our mobile shredding services to come to you.

Secure shredding services are ideal if you’re looking for the most secure way to shred your documents. Depending on your location, you may not live within a convenient driving distance from a drop-off location. This could be a problem for those who do not have access to transportation. If that is the case, mobile shredding may be a better option as the shredding truck will come to you and shred at your location.
