What to Shred

Unless your confidential documents are disposed of securely, they could fall into the wrong hands and compromise the security and privacy of your business. Protecting the security of your printed materials is our number one priority. We’ll help you comply with data privacy legislation and keep your confidential information secure.

Knowing which documents need to be shredded is vital. Too often, sensitive information is simply thrown in the garbage or recycling bin; items like letterhead, invoices, company reports, payroll information, customer lists and even complaints are confidential and must be securely destroyed. Here’s a quick overview of the paper documents that should be shredded to avoid breaches:
