Popular shredding companies include Iron Mountain, Shred-it, Citishred and Secure Document Alliance. These companies allow businesses to safely and cost-effectively discard unnecessary paper-based documents while complying with state, federal and industry regulations.
Iron Mountain provides on-site, off-site, one-time and recurring secure shredding services. Clients that choose off-site shredding services receive bins from the company where employees drop their documents. The company then collects the documents and shreds them at its facility. For on-site shredding services, Iron Mountain sends a mobile shredding truck to shred the documents at the client's premises.
Shred-it offers paper shredding in addition to hard drive and media destruction services. The company provides tailored document destruction services and offers strict chain-of-custody processes to ensure confidential business information remains secure. It has a global network of local service centers that make services easily accessible to its clients.
Secure Document Alliance analyzes business-specific requirements to help clients determine the best shredding service frequency. The company then places secure collection containers in the client's premises and collects the documents on the predetermined days. These days keep changing to accommodate changing client needs. Secure Document Alliance also provides express and residential shredding services. Citishred only provides on-site shredding for sensitive information including medical, legal and financial records. It provides clients with a certificate of destruction after each shredding service as proof for completing the exercise.
