HOW OUR SHREDDING PROCESS WORKS . . .

Total Shred Solutions’ On-Site Paper Shredding & Secure Document Destruction Service offers a secure way to destroy sensitive material effortlessly.

Our process is simple.

  • Our on-site locked secure consoles are placed strategically throughout your facility to have materials dropped in by your employees.

  • Once full, a uniformed and insured Customer Service Officer will pick up the materials and immediately shred them on-site using our no-touch mobile destruction unit.

   

Total Shred Solutions’ state of the art mobile Document Destruction units are designed to shred up to 5,000 lbs of paper per hour.

Our Customer Service Operators never touch your documents during the shredding process reducing the risk for exposure even more.

The pulverizing system allows the paper to be reduced to the smallest shred size in the industry.

  • Once destroyed, all materials collected are recycled. The entire process can be witnessed by your compliance officer or company representative.
  • We will provide you with a Certificate of Destruction verifying that your sensitive materials were properly destroyed.

Working with professionals, like Total Shred Solutions, that are familiar with handling HIPPA, and other sensitive documents will ensure your documents are being destroyed according to industry standards. Don’t leave it to chance, leave it to the professionals.

THINK BEFORE YOU RECYCLE!

According to the American Forest & Paper Association,” Paper recovery for recycling is a national success because of the commitment millions of Americans make each day to recycling at home, at work, or at school.” –but what should we recycle and what should we shred?

Recycling vs Secure Document Shredding

What should you recycle and what should you shred?

When it comes to office paper, employers must educate their employees on what is considered confidential or sensitive consumer/patient information and what is not. In other words, what information if not properly disposed of would put the company or its clients at risk for privacy violations, legal action, or consumer identity theft? We must understand that with most recycling programs, the paper is collected in non-secure receptacles until collected and transported from your location in its whole form. This process provides a window of opportunity for potential breaches.

Therefore, things such as folders, books, magazines, greeting cards and mailing supplies should go into the recycling containers. Everything else such as employee pay stubs, bank statements, medical records, SSN# or credit card numbers, tax forms, pre-approved credit card offers, etc. should be shredded by partnering with a professional secure document destruction company, such as, Total Shred Solutions, that will assist you in establishing a secure document destruction program utilizing secure collection containers.

Identity theft tops list of consumer complaints for 14th consecutive year

The FTC announced its top 10 consumer complaints for 2013 today. Of the more than 2 million consumer complaints received…

  • Identity theft leads the field, with 14 percent of total complaints filed. Thirty percent of those were tax- or wage-related, which continues to be the largest category within identity theft complaints.
  • Coming in at a close second: Debt collection, with 10 percent.
  • Completing the trifecta: Banks and lenders, with 7 percent.
  • Rounding out the field: Imposter scams; telephone and mobile services; prizes, sweepstakes, and lotteries; auto related complaints; shop-at-home and catalog sales; television and electronic media; and advance payment for credit services.

The good news: Millions of consumers are beating the scammers. That’s because complaints matter at the FTC. If a business doesn’t deliver on its promises, if someone cheats you out of your money, or if you’ve spotted a scam, you’ve been telling it to the FTC. Your complaints help us stop rip-off artists, scammers, and fraudsters. The FTC’s aggressive law enforcement efforts put the bad guys out of business, and our vigorous consumer education campaigns empower people just like you to make well-informed buying decisions and recognize frauds and scams.
