Scheduled paper shredding is one way to simplify the shredding process. It protects all of your sensitive data by preventing data breaches and improving your security. You won’t have any sensitive information laying around your office, meaning you won’t have to worry that it could end up in the wrong hands. And, you will be more aware of all the documents in your office.
Here are some more benefits of scheduled paper shredding.
You Choose The Shredding Time
You may rarely have printed documents or you may have so many that you don’t know what to do with them all. One benefit to having scheduled paper shredding is that you get to choose when your documents get picked up. You could choose weekly, bi-weekly, or even monthly pick-ups. Ideally, you should choose a time when you know you will have significant amount of documents to shred. For instance, if you rarely have printed documents, you probably shouldn’t choose weekly.
You can also choose when you wish to end your shredding services if you no longer need it. If you like the service, it will be ongoing until you decide otherwise.
On-site or Off-site Shredding
If you can’t find the time to bring your documents to a shredding facility, you can schedule a time for the service to come to you. Or, if you feel safer bringing your documents to a facility, you can do that as well. It comes down to your schedule, comfort, and what is most convenient for you. Typically, it is most convenient to gave the shredding facility come to you so you do not have to make the trip.
If you choose on-site shredding, you can request a bin provided by the company to put your papers in. These bins can come with a lock, so you won’t have to worry about anyone stealing papers that are going to be shred. You can also request these bins if you choose off-site shredding. It may give you the extra peace of mind that there will be no data or security breaches. Make sure to contact your shredding company if the wrong papers get into the locked bin.
