Waterloo Shredding Service

How does a Waterloo shredding service work?

Step 1

Let’s use Blue-Pencil’s Office Shredding Program as an example. To begin, we will offer a full assessment of your current policies and procedures for security, legal compliance, and cost efficiency.

Step 2

Once we have determined what records can stay and what can go, a security console will be delivered to allow for the safe deposit of your most confidential documents to be sent for shredding.

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.


Simply deposit your documents into the security consoles, and the rest is on us!

Step 3

Your confidential information is securely transported to our mobile shredding unit, where it’s destroyed in the back of our truck with an industrial shredder. Your documents will never even leave your property, and you can watch the whole process unfold.


Our trucks contain industrial shredders and will come right to your office to get the job done.

Step 4

Once all of your documents have been shredded, we provide you with a Certificate of Destruction. It is issued immediately after each service.

Step 5

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.

Why work with a Waterloo shredding service?

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

If you don’t have a shredding program, therefore, 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 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.


PIPEDA outlines relevant rules and regulations for the proper destruction of personal and confidential information in Canada.
