Everyone uses paper. Despite the growing trend toward paperless businesses and medical offices, we still use a tremendous amount of paper. Did you know that a single individual will consume nearly 700 pounds of paper in only one year? The need for a sustainable solution becomes even more urgent when you consider the number of trees it takes to produce the 12 trillion sheets of paper that powers offices each year. Recycling seems like an obvious solution; however, each of these documents has the potential to hold sensitive proprietary business information, personally identifiable health information or other sensitive data that cannot be tossed into the recycling bin and forgotten. Once documents are deposited into recycling bins and left on the curb for pickup by the recycling service, they are considered public property–leaving you vulnerable. Compliance with governmental and corporate regulations dictates that sensitive information be protected and managed in a verifiable way, right up to and including its destruction.
For businesses and organizations in every industry, finding the right balance between practicing good environmental stewardship and maintaining documental compliance with records management regulations can be difficult, especially for small businesses who do not have a ton of capital to invest in services. When you entrust your documents to a secure, professional shredding service, your information is destroyed in a way that keeps your information safe and your operation compliant. Professional shredding services will make use of locked bins to protect your documents and information from unauthorized access, allowing only specially-trained employees the ability to handle and destroy documents.
