Identity theft seems to be everywhere these days: on the news, in your morning paper, and in your browser window. The risk might seem overblown to anyone who hasn’t personally experienced identity theft, but the statistics are alarming. One in five people believe that stealing online information isn’t as bad as stealing physical property, and data theft accounted for almost 92% of all security breaches in 2016. Of course, theft isn’t limited to online information. Credit card statements and account numbers are gold mines for thieves, and these can easily be found in the discarded trash of both companies and residents alike. If you or your Marietta business handle personal information in any way, a document shredding program is one of the best ways to ensure that your sensitive materials are never compromised.
A document shredding service works with you to determine the ideal frequency and method of destruction for your individual needs. We shred both paper and electronic media (such as CDs, hard drives, and SD cards) into tiny, unreadable bits, which are then responsibly recycled.
Any industry that deals with the sensitive personal data of customers or employees is required to have certain protections in place to make sure that information is never endangered. Gator Shredding is fully compliant with HIPAA, FACTA, GLBA, IRS, and FERPA mandates for privacy protection. When you book our services, you’ll help insure yourself and your company against potential liabilities or fines for improperly disposed data. After your documents have been shredded, we’ll provide you with a Certificate of Destruction which can be used to prove that you discarded them according to regulatory standards.
Our Services and Solutions
We offer a wide variety of shredding services designed to address the specific needs of your Marietta company. From one-time shredding for an office purge or community fundraiser to regularly scheduled shredding of accumulated documents, we have the perfect solution at the ready. All you need to do is book an appointment and collect the documents to be shredded. Don’t worry about removing staples or rubber bands; our trucks are capable of shredding over 6,000 pounds of documents an hour, staples included. You can even watch the process as it happens, personally verifying that your papers have been satisfactorily disposed.
Does your company regularly handle sensitive data? Our scheduled shredding service comes complete with secure, private disposal boxes, designed to blend innocuously into an office environment while remaining safe and protected from any unauthorized access. We’ll come, safely empty your bins, shred all contained documents, and return them to you for continued, uninterrupted use.
If you only have a few boxes of papers to shred at home, we have a solution for that, too. We offer bin pickups and regularly scheduled shredding services, but we also invite you to bring your documents to our fully monitored and secured facility. When you arrive for your appointment, we’ll promptly and confidentially destroy your documents and send the particles to a trusted recycling facility.
What if your information is stored on hard drives, floppy discs, or CDs? We have a solution there, too. Conducting a simple wipe or deletion of important files is never enough to guarantee against their recovery. Shredding or destruction is the only 100% guaranteed method of erasing sensitive data. We’ll note the serial numbers of all hard drives to be shredded before subjecting them to our Hard Drive Crusher, which will completely pulverize the hardware beyond any possible means of repair. At the end of the appointment, you’ll receive a Certificate of Destruction with the serial numbers for your company records. We can come to you, or you can make an appointment with our facility. You don’t have to worry about your impact on the environment, either. We recycle all electronic debris, and we even have a safe, secure recycling program for large office equipment like computers and keyboards.
When you partner with Gator Shredding, you can relax in the knowledge that you’ll receive professional, industry-grade shredding, full privacy compliance, and prompt, friendly service.

We are committed to protecting the environment
All shredded material is taken to our secure facility where it is baled and sent to the paper mill to be recycled into items such as paper towels, toilet paper and/or napkins. Recycling paper saves trees, conserves water and reduces the amount of waste going to landfills.
