“BiS has been a UC supplier since 1997 so I knew I could rely on their integrity.”
Ron Cushing, International Student Services at UC
We’re not suggesting that being green is bad. But you also have to be safe. Not completely destroying sensitive documents and media can expose your business to costly risks. Unauthorized use or viewing of your proprietary business records by the wrong people can result in civil or criminal prosecution against your company, and even the loss of your business. Secure document shredding is key.
The experts at BiS stay up to date on Federal, state, and local regulatory issues, and work with you to develop a secure document shredding program that meets your business needs and helps keep your company in full compliance. Document destruction isn’t new, but it is arguably the best way to safely discard your papers.
Stop using empty copy boxes and lids to hold your discarded paperwork. When your papers go into public trash collection without being properly processed, you put yourself and your company at risk. In 2019, the average cost of a lost record was $242. If someone steals even a small file folder of old client details, the cost to your business could quickly climb into the thousands.
A professional document shredding company effectively removes this liability while simultaneously offering all-inclusive service. Without interrupting your day-to-day business operations, we provide desk-side pickup, central consoles, office purges, and bulk disposals prior to shredding. Then we recycle the shredded material, keeping you safe and helping the planet stay green. The only thing you have to do is call us.
The need for document destruction extends beyond old payroll records and client details. Any item with personally identifiable information (PII) needs to be professionally shredded to ensure that the information is kept secure. This includes mailers, scribbled notes, meeting printouts, and more. If you’re not sure whether something should be shredded or not, err on the side of caution. Document shredding is fast, easy, and effective.
