Shredding Pick Up Service in Washington, DC
Washington DC Shredding Pick Up Services
Washington Document Shredding can match you with an affordable pick up shredding service. With pick up, or off site, a truck comes to your location, transports your files to a shredding plant in DC, and securely shreds them alongside tens of thousands of others. The process is compliant with all current federal and state privacy laws including HIPAA. Pick up shredding is popular because it is generally cheaper to shred at a facility than at your location. It has a high level of security as only authorized employees are allowed to come in contact with the paper or even be at the plant.
Uniformed security drivers partnered with Washington Document Shredding transport your files within a locked truck, guarding them until arrival at a locked shredding facility. Upon the delivery of the materials for destruction, the containers are inventoried.
Once inventoried, they are then staged to begin the shredding process. The material is fed directly into an industrial shredder which is able to process over 20,000 lbs an hour. At the end, a certificate of destruction is created with the total weight, and this is to verify that the materials were shredded.
Once papers are shredded they are compacted and shipped directly to a DC paper company, where the material is pulped and processed to make new paper or recycled.
