On-Site Document Shredding
Whether you need to destroy confidential files or hard copy records, Augusta Data Storage, Inc. can manage the process efficiently and effectively to ensure your protection. For many industries such as banking, law firms, hospitals and government agencies, the moral and legal responsibility to maintain confidentiality is critical. Many of these organizations find that by using waste haulers, recyclers or off-site shredding operations, they lose control of their private materials.

It also protects your customers and employees from possible identity theft.

Additional Benefits of On-Site Document Shredding
You’ll have peace of mind
When you partner with Augusta Data Storage Inc. for your shredding needs, you benefit from a secure process that follows a strict chain of custody, protecting your information from being lost or stolen. We’ll provide you with lockable collection containers, to safely store documents in prior to shredding. Furthermore, you can witness the actual shredding without it taking away from your work activity. Seeing your documents being shred firsthand will give you peace of mind in knowing that all data has been destroyed and there is no chance of it becoming exposed.
You can include last-minute add-ons
Due to the fact that we come to your business location, there’s always time to include any last minute documents you might wish to shred while we’re parked outside your facility. Additionally you have the option to schedule shredding appointments on specific days that work well for your business; this pre-determined schedule will significantly reduce any risk of data exposure.
All shredded material is irrecoverable
The biggest benefit of hiring an onsite shredding provider is that we’re equipped to shred documents beyond recovery. In fact, our mobile shredder features cross-cut shred machinery that is so advanced that paper is shred into tiny pieces rather than strips. These micro pieces are then mixed with other shredded paper, thus making it impossible to reassemble. Not only that, all shredded pieces are typically recycled, so you can rest assured it will not affect your company’s social responsibility practices. If requested, an audit trail can be provided as proof of your legal compliance with shredding, in accordance with privacy laws.
You’ll save time and energy
In an attempt to reduce internal costs, some business owners think that the best method of doing so is to assign employees to handle the shredding that is needed. However, they often don’t take into account that in-house shredding diverts their focus from core business tasks. In addition, leaving this important process to your staff may result in breaches of confidentiality, as there will be no way to guarantee that the sensitive documents are in fact unrecoverable.
