Not only is this process secure, but it’s also environmentally friendly. Here are some steps for the secure shredding process in detail and outline the advantages of using a professional shredding service.

Step 1: How Many Documents Do You Have To Shred.

The first thing is to figure out how much paper you must shred and gather all of your documents in a secure bin. If you hire a professional shredding company, there is no need to remove staples or paper clips.

Once you have all of your documents, you will need to hire a professional shredding service and determine what service fits your needs.

Finding a company to do your shredding is just as important as the service you choose.

Step 4: Receive Certificate Of Destruction

Once you schedule with a shredding provider the process is nearly complete! After the shredding process is completed, you’ll be provided with a Certificate of Destruction.

Once the documents are shredded, they are recycled so they don’t end up in a landfill.
