When to Switch from One-Time Shredding Service to Recurring Shredding Service

A stack of sticky notes. The top note reads "Time for Change"“They say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself” is a quote from Artist Andy Warhol.

A key to being efficient is to keep up with change over time. Your business made the decision some time ago to use the shredding services of a professional shredding company because you wanted to save money and ensure your company remained compliant with data destruction. But things might be happening in your business right now that require a change; the move from one-time shredding services to recurring shredding services. How do you know when it’s time for that? To help you decide, here are some questions to ask about your shredding needs.

Are Your Documents Piling Up?

Are your discarded documents starting to stack up? The longer your documents sit in a recycling bin or in a stack waiting to be destroyed, the greater the risk of a data breach. When they pile up, those discarded documents become more vulnerable to the eyes of unauthorized individuals. They could also be easily stolen or lost.

It’s wise to minimize the time your documents sit, waiting to be shredded. If you switch to recurring shredding services, they will be picked up and destroyed on a regular basis. You can choose a schedule that’s as frequent as you need to match the quantity of documents you need destroyed. And, as your needs grow and change, the schedule can change with you.

Would You Benefit from Shredding Collection Containers?

A professional shredding company can provide shred collection containers that are locked and secure so you won’t worry about discarded documents sitting in an open bin. The containers protect your data from the minute your documents are discarded to the minute they are destroyed, with no one seeing or handling them. And they provide a high level of compliance. A professional commercial shredding company will help you determine the number of containers you need and how frequently they need to be collected.

Do You Want Your Customers to Feel Confident?

When you make your customers aware that your business securely destroys their private information on a regular basis, they will understand your business values. They will know that protecting them is a priority for you, no matter what service or product your business provides. When your customers are confident that they are in good hands and that they can trust you, your business will strengthen and grow.
