The Problems with Free & Cut-Rate Shredding Services

free square sticker. free sign. free banner with do not symbol on topHave you received an offer for free shredding and think it might be too good to be true? Trust your gut and do not take the bait. Recycling and uncertified shredding companies in Northern Colorado often solicit local businesses with “free” shredding or “low-cost” shredding offers.

Identity Theft

“Free shredding” is not free. Recycling and uncertified shredding companies lack certifications and security protocols required by the shredding and destruction industry for professional document destruction. A recycling company picks up your files, hauls them away, and you never see them again. Getting them out of sight and out of mind is not worth the risk of exposing your customers and employees to identity theft. Anytime someone takes your intact and readable documents and sorts them by hand, your confidential information is at risk; a recycling service or unqualified provider posing as legitimate shredding company is no different.

When you partner with Apex Shredding, we ensure you receive the most secure document destruction solution available in Northern Colorado. We destroy your documents on-site at your office with our mobile shredding truck while you watch.

If you want a true privacy protection solution for your outdated financial, customer, and employee data, please call us at 970-532-5007 or complete the form on this page.

Our on-site mobile shredding services offer the highest level of security in the document destruction industry. As a National Association of Information Destruction shredding provider, our equipment and processes are regularly audited by third-party, independent security professionals. During audits, they assess several areas, including:

  • Chain of custody procedures
  • Security policies
  • Insurance requirements

We destroy your documents within a strict chain of custody which adheres to NAID standards.

Regulatory Non-Compliance

Your organization must comply with the following laws and regulations requiring personally identifiable information (PII) and protected health information (PHI) to be safeguarded when discarded:

  • HIPAA
  • FACTA
  • GLBA
  • SOX

Failing to meet the requirements of these laws could result in stiff penalties. “Free” or “low-cost” shredding by a recycling provider or uncertified shredding company does not meet the state and federal legal compliance standards.

Apex Shredding’s professional document destruction service helps your company uphold its legal obligations. The Certificate of Destruction we offer each time we destroy your documents is backed by NAID AAA Certification and Downstream Data protection, the highest standards in the document destruction industry.

Privacy Breach Exposure

“Free” shredding could cost you a fortune in fines, legal fees, and long-term damage to your reputation. Companies have even been forced out of business as a result of data breach lawsuits. As your privacy protection partner, Apex Shredding is committed to safeguarding your business from breaches of personal and financial information.

We give you the peace of mind that comes from knowing your documents are securely destroyed by a reputable shredding company.
