Secure Paper Shredding

Our secure, environmentally friendly solution

Organizations understand the impact of sustainability and many have adopted initiatives supporting circular economy such as zero-waste or landfill diversion goals. However, they are often challenged with disposing or recycling materials which include enterprise, proprietary, or customer data.

Organizations need a solution that allows them to dispose of paper documents to achieve sustainability targets without compromising on data security and increased costs.

With Iron Mountain Secure Paper Shredding, you get the resources and proven expertise you’ll need to create, implement and monitor a comprehensive information destruction program that is convenient, compliant, cost-effective and sustainable.

Iron Mountain Secure Shredding

Enhance security

Regardless of the size or industry of your company, you need a defined process and secure procedures for disposing of retired and non-working assets. Regulatory penalties, a damaged brand reputation and inadvertent disclosures could result from improper methods.

Improve sustainability

Iron Mountain® Secure e-Waste and IT Asset Disposition (Secure ITAD) services enable you to securely dispose of obsolete IT assets in an environmentally-responsible manner through certified partner organisations. You can also maximise your asset value recovery with industry-leading logistics and secure chain of custody processes.

Protect brand reputation

Iron Mountain works with e-Stewards or R2 certified partner organisations that follow the strictest environmental and data privacy guidelines. Customers have the option to retain the value of retired IT assets through refurbishment, data sanitisation, and reselling at market price. This allows customers to participate in the circular economy while reducing the total cost of ownership and fully maintaining security and sustainability requirements. Assets can also be recycled and we adhere to the strictest guidelines including a no-overseas and no-landfill policy.

Stacks of office equipment

At Iron Mountain, we’re always looking for ways to improve our own environmental performance within our operations. We’re proud of our Iron Mountain Eco Box, made from 80% recycled materials and 20% from sustainably managed forests.

It’s certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), a group that works to ensure forests are properly and responsibly maintained to meet economic needs, conserve biodiversity and preserve species, while also taking into account land rights and the rights of indigenous communities and workers.
