Off Site Shredding in Riverside, CA
Off site shredding is essentially the operation of picking up documents from your office and then delivering them to a secure shredding plant in Southern California for destruction. This process complies with all current federal and California state privacy laws including HIPAA.
Off site shredding is popular because it is often less expensive to shred at a Riverside plant with a large, stationary shredder than at your location. It provides a high level of security as only authorized people are allowed to come in contact with the paper or even be in the plant.
Uniformed security professionals take your documents in a locked truck, protecting them until they arrive at a secure shredding plant in Riverside. Upon the arrival of the files for destruction, the containers are inventoried and their weights recorded. They are then staged to start the shredding work. The material is dumped directly into the industrial shredder, which processes over 20,000 pounds per hour. A Certificate of Destruction is issued with the certified weight, assuring that the papers were destroyed.
Once the materials are shredded, they are baled and shipped directly to a paper mill where the material is turned into pulp and recycled into new paper.
