- How often should I have my confidential paper shredded?
There are many state and federal regulations on the amount of time that confidential material needs to be securely stored before it can be shredded. For the material that can be shredded without being stored, our recommendation is to shred the material within one month and ensure the confidential material is locked at all times before it is shredded. If you handle a high volume of confidential material, a weekly or every other week service is recommended.
- How many confidential containers should I have in my office?
For a small office of 1-5 employees one confidential container should handle your material for a month. For medium to large offices, confidential containers should be placed within close proximity of your employees. Additional containers may be needed by the copy machine, mail room, HR department, executive offices and shipping department.
- What is considered confidential material?
Any paper, box or container that has names, titles, social security numbers, birth dates, and other personal & corporate identifiers is considered of confidential nature. In addition, companies may have copyright material that needs to be kept confidential or shredded to ensure it doesn’t fall into the wrong hands. The best rule to use with confidential paper is to use a confidential shredding company to shred all your paper products so your employees don’t have to guess what is confidential or what is not. If you shred all of your paper, there is no question, it is all secured.
