Optimise your secure shred program

Regular program monitoring is critical to minimizing business risk, ensuring ongoing compliance, and managing program costs.

  • Safeguard your organisation’s reputation by securely shredding sensitive and confidential paper documents
  • Reduce costs by shredding documents no longer useful or necessary
  • Ensure compliance by shredding documents in accordance with federal, state, and industry regulations to avoid penalties, fines, or legal action

Why shred? Here is why outsourcing shredding makes sense.

For decades, businesses have been using shredding machines to ensure the safe disposal of confidential documents and paper records. However, standard office shredders are not entirely secure, they can be very expensive to maintain, and can be highly time-consuming to use. The good news is that cost-effective, outsourced shredding services are available. Here is why outsourcing shredding makes sense.

Secure Offsite Shredding

Ongoing, verified destruction of sensitive paper documents and plastics such as backup tapes, DVDs, X-Rays and other non-paper media. 

How it works:

Collection containers are placed in appropriate locations on your premises. At regularly scheduled service intervals, trained specialists collect the containers for transport to a secure destruction centre. 

Containers are processed and their contents destroyed using proprietary procedures and commercial-grade shredding equipment. All non-recoverable by-product materials are recycled, and a certificate of destruction is provided.

Special Purge or Shredding Projects

Sometimes regularly scheduled destruction services don’t make sense. For periodic or one-time shredding, Iron Mountain offers a range of Special Project Destruction services that can be customised to meet your organisation’s unique needs.  

  • Implementing a new records management programme or retention schedule
  • Completing a tax audit or litigation matter
  • Relocating or consolidating facilities
  • Cleaning out storerooms and file rooms to create extra space

All Special Projects Destruction services are handled with same level of security, consistency and reliability as our recurring services.
