Scheduled Shredding, Purge Shredding, or Drop-Off Shredding?

Three roads in the forest, choice of path.When it comes to destroying confidential paper records, cookie cutter solutions just don’t work. Each business has different document shredding needs. In this blog, we explain the differences between scheduled shredding, purge shredding, and drop-off shredding.

Scheduled Shredding

Feeding documents into an office shredder takes time. As a result, your employees may spend a lot of time each month shredding files. A scheduled shredding service eliminates the time and hassle of in-house document destruction.

Your information destruction provider brings security bins to your office and places them at strategic locations to ensure swift and easy disposal of confidential documents. Entire files—including staples, paperclips, sticky notes, and more—can be swiftly dropped into a security bin. Depending on the volume of information your business discards, your shredding provider collects them on a daily, weekly, monthly, or quarterly basis. A scheduled shredding solution helps you stay productive.

One-Time Purge Shredding

A one-time purge shredding service offers the security and efficiency of scheduled, routine shredding with one difference: instead of having your documents destroyed weekly or monthly, your information destruction partner destroys them on an as-needed basis. One-time purge shredding offers an ideal solution in the following scenarios:

  • Office relocations
  • File room clean-outs
  • Quarterly or bi-annual destruction of obsolete records

Your provider can bring security bins to your office before your purge project or pick up boxes of expired records on the day of your purge. One-time purge shredding helps you quickly and securely eliminate unwanted paperwork and outdated files.

Drop-Off Shredding

During COVID-19, more employees are working from home. Drop-off shredding helps companies maintain a secure and verifiable document destruction routine. You bring your bags or boxes of documents to your information destruction provider’s drop-off shredding location. They use state-of-the-art destruction technology to destroy your information. The entire shredding process is recorded to video and stored for 90 days.
