Whether it’s to maintain confidentiality or to dispose of office documents that are no longer useful, most offices require the services of a shredding business to prevent their office space from being overcrowded with paper documents. The YouTube video ” Secure Document Shredding – Cascades Recovery” looks into the service offered by a shredding business company.
When a shredding business is contracted for secure document shredding, a locked office console is provided to hold documents marked for destruction until they are picked up at a pre-arranged schedule by a designated driver. Drivers who pick up locked consoles are pre-screened and bonded to ensure a safe chain of custody for the documents until they are destroyed.
The documents marked for destruction are transferred into a secure tote by the driver and a certificate of destruction, which must be signed before the documents are shredded.
In addition to a certificate of destruction, the weight of the documents to be shredded is also provided to enable payment of rebates. Companies can also opt for onsite shredding. For onsite shredding, a company can monitor the destruction of their documents using a video feed which shows the document-destruction process that occurs inside trucks.
