Off-site shredding is the process of taking papers to a secure location in Atlanta and shredding them. This process complies with all current federal and Georgia privacy laws including HIPAA. Off-site shredding is popular because it is usually less expensive to shred high volumes at a facility with the largest shredders than at your location.
Uniformed security professionals take your files in a locked truck, guarding them until it is delivered to the shredding plant. Upon the arrival of the materials for destruction, the bins are inventoried. Once recorded, they are then staged to begin the shredding work. The material is fed directly into the giant shredder processing over 20,000 lbs per hour. A certificate of destruction is issued with the total weight that verifies that the materials were shredded.
Once materials are destroyed, they are compacted and shipped directly to a paper company where the material is pulped to make new paper.
