Toronto Shredding Service
How does a Toronto shredding service work?
Blue-Pencil’s Office Shredding Program works as follows:
To begin, we offer a full assessment of your current policies and procedures for security, legal compliance, and cost efficiency as it pertains to document shredding.
Once it has been determined what records can stay and what can go, a security console is delivered wherein you can safely deposit your documents that are being sent for shredding. Blue-Pencil works with you to set a collection schedule that works best for your business. At the appointed time, therefore, 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.
Place your documents into the security consoles, and the rest is on us!
Confidential information is securely transported to a mobile shredding unit, where it’s destroyed in the back of a truck with an industrial shredder. Your documents will never leave your property, and you can watch the whole process unfold if you want!
Our trucks contain industrial shredders and will come right to your office to get the job done.
A Certificate of Destruction is given to you once all of your documents have been shredded. It is issued immediately after each service.
When you shred with Blue-Pencil, you are helping the environment! All shredded paper is recycled! You can learn more about our environmental program here.

Why work with a Toronto shredding service?
Toronto is the biggest city in Canada and features a thriving and diverse economy. Many businesses of all sizes call it home, and a Toronto shredding service is therefore in high demand. Blue-Pencil provides information security services to virtually every industry in the greater Toronto area.
Canadian privacy laws for businesses and corporations are summarized by PIPEDA (the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act). This act outlines relevant rules and regulations for 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
Failing to comply with PIPEDA can result in audits, enforced compliance agreements, or even litigation. If you don’t have a shredding program, therefore, you’re at risk of information leaks or even cybersecurity breaches.
Records or documents that contain confidential information should be securely stored. When no longer in use, these records should be properly disposed of in the most secure manner possible to ensure compliance with Canadian laws.
