Our Process:

You Dispose

Once your paper records become outdated and you decide it’s time to securely dispose of them using our secure shredding service, you will either drop them into one of our secure shred containers or contact us for bulk purge shredding. Either way, you can rest assured that the information will remain protected through the end of it’s useful life.

We Shred

Once you schedule your service, we will either stop by on your regularly scheduled shred service date and empty your secure shred bin, or make an appointment to perform a bulk purge shred of your outdated records. During this process, the paper is shredded as a part of our NAID-AAA Certified shredding process either at your location via our mobile shred units, or in house at our shred plant.

We Process & Bale

Regardless of the service type you select, all of our shredded paper pulp is processed and baled at our facility. These bales are then stored until they can be picked up for recycling.

Our Partners Recycle

Once we have processed and baled the paper, the paper pulp bales are picked up by GP Harmon and recycled to make new products.

When you trust Augusta Data Storage with your secure shredding service, you can rest assured that we are working to help protect your information and the environment!
