Frequently Asked Questions

    • Why use a Destruction Contractor?

      In-house shredding will not handle large volumes and may prompt employees to circumvent the destruction process. Company info such as payroll, legal and employment issues, and correspondence should be kept confidential. Employees are most likely to realize the value of discarded company info.
    • Why use ShredCorp since we have an office shredder?

      We can destroy up to 5000 pounds per hour, while the average office shredder can only handle 200 pounds per hour. Save your office personnel’s valuable time by letting us shred for you. Did you know that 70% of all corporate crimes are committed by employees or ex-employees? Don’t give access to sensitive materials to the wrong people! We shred paper with staples and paper clips attached; all of which would need to be removed prior to using an office shredder.
    • Why not use a recycling center for our shredding needs?

      With our on-site mobile document destruction unit, you can be assured that all of your sensitive materials are destroyed before leaving the premises.
    • Do you issue a certificate of destruction?

      Yes. A Certificate of Destruction certifying the time and date your materials were destroyed is provided with all of our shredding services.
    • Do we need to sort everything?

      No. We do all the work for you. We shred paper with paperclips, staples and binder clips.
    • How does regular scheduled service work?

      • Step 1: We place secure locked containers in your office.
      • Step 2: On a scheduled day, ShredCorp empties the containers into a locked cart.
      • Step 3: The documents are taken to our mobile truck and lifted to the shredder.
      • Step 4: You can witness the destruction process from our video monitor.
      • Step 5: A Certificate of Destruction is provided as proof of the service
    • Why not just recycle?

      Recycling alone does not establish the necessary requirements of information destruction such as: How, where, when, and who destroyed the materials. A legal chain of custody needs to be established to properly identify fiduciary obligations.
