Off Site Shredding in Cleveland, OH

Cleveland Off Site Shredding Services

Cleveland Document Shredding partners with contractors who offer off-site shredding, which is a great solution for those Cleveland Businesses with larger, recurring shredding projects. Off-site shredding differs from mobile shredding because the materials are not shredded at your location.

Off-site, shredding is compliant with every current federal and Ohio privacy law, including HIPAA. Off-site shredding is also a great option for those who have projects larger than 6,000 pounds, as the shredder at the plant is an industrial sized shredder—capable of shredding up to 20,000 pounds an hour.

By leveraging off-site shredding services, businesses can benefit from cost savings, enhanced security and compliance, convenient pickup schedules, and a commitment to environmentally friendly document disposal practices. Partnering with a reputable shredding company ensures that confidential information is handled and destroyed responsibly.

Benefits of Off Site Shredding

  1. Cost-Effectiveness: Off-site shredding services can be cost-effective for businesses compared to in-house shredding solutions. Professional shredding companies have specialized equipment and processes that allow them to handle large volumes of documents efficiently. Outsourcing shredding tasks to off-site facilities eliminates the need for investing in expensive shredding equipment, maintenance, and employee training.
  2. Security and Compliance: Off-site shredding services prioritize security and compliance with data protection regulations such as GDPR, HIPAA, or FACTA. Shredding companies use industrial-grade shredders to destroy documents into tiny, unreadable pieces, ensuring sensitive information remains confidential. Additionally, reputable shredding providers issue certificates of destruction, documenting the secure disposal of documents and helping businesses demonstrate compliance during audits.
  3. Convenience and Flexibility: Off-site shredding services offer convenience and flexibility by providing scheduled pickup services based on your business’s needs. Shredding bins or consoles are typically provided to securely store documents until they are collected for shredding. This allows businesses to maintain a clutter-free workspace while ensuring sensitive documents are securely handled and destroyed off-site.
  4. Environmental Sustainability: Professional off-site shredding services often include recycling as part of their process. After documents are securely shredded, the shredded materials are compacted and sent to recycling facilities. Recycling shredded materials not only reduces waste sent to landfills but also promotes environmental sustainability by reusing paper fibers in new products.

Off Site Shredding Process

  1. Papers that needs to be destroyed are collected.
  2. The paper is collected in locked bins.
  3. The bins are transported to the shredding plant.
  4. The paper is shredded, compacted, and recycled into new paper.
  5. A certificate of destruction is issued to you.

Trained security professionals that partner with Arlington Document Destruction transport your files within a locked truck, guarding them until it is delivered at a secure shredding facility in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. Upon the arrival of the files for destruction, the bins are inventoried. Once recorded, they are lined up to begin the shredding work. The material is fed directly into the industrial shredder, processing about 20,000 pounds an hour. A certificate of destruction is created with the certified weight that assures the papers were shredded.

Once the materials are destroyed, they are baled and sent directly to a paper mill where the material is turned into pulp to make new paper.
