When to Switch from One-Time Shredding to Recurring Shredding
To everything there is a season. If you’re a music fan, you’ll recognize that phrase from Pete Seeger’s 1959 song, “Turn! Turn! Turn!” that went to #1 on the Billboard charts in 1965 by the band, The Byrds. Most of the lyrics are taken directly from the biblical Book of Ecclesiastes.
As your business continues to grow, the season of one-time shredding may be coming to an end with a new season of recurring shredding on the horizon. Here’s how you will know it’s time to turn, turn, turn from one-time to recurring shredding.
Your Office Is Cluttered
When you keep your workspace organized and uncluttered, it helps to free up thinking space. If your space is organized, your productivity increases and your employees can operate at maximum capacity. When you use recurring shredding services on a regular basis, your space will remain clean and clear rather than having papers pile up. This will benefit your space, staff and your businesses efficiency.
You Need More Space
Whether owned or rented, space is expensive and shouldn’t be wasted on storage. When you move to recurring shredding, you will eliminate the need to store or move file boxes and discarded papers around to keep your space open. When shredding occurs regularly, you protect valuable space that can be used for creating revenue, rather than storage.
Your Security has Weak Links
Where are your discarded documents sitting prior to being shredded? If they are sitting unattended in a pile or bin, there is the likelihood they could be seen or stolen by unauthorized people, or simply misplaced. The information on your documents must be protected. Don’t let this unprotected moment in the lifespan of your information be the weak link in its security. To stay compliant with privacy laws like HIPPA, FACTA, GLB, and SOX, your information must be protected from creation to destruction. With recurring shredding, a NAID AAA Certified shredding company can provide securely locked shred collection containers for direct disposal of documents. They will then remain safe until they are collected by a trained shredding technician.
You Need One-Time Shredding More Frequently
Whether you are using a convenient drop-off service or a one-time pick-up service, if the number of trips or calls to the shredding company has increased, you are ready for recurring shredding. Frequently dropping off documents is costing you both in staff time and travel expenses. Even scheduling one-time pick-ups take time and focus away from your business and will be alleviated with a recurring shredding service.
