All documents for shredding are kept secure from pick-up into the shredder, made into bales and delivered to the paper mill for recycling. Recycling pulps and de-inks the material before reprocessing it back into recycled fiber. Not a "shred of evidence" remains that your documents ever existed.

To protect against:
You are responsible for your clients information:
Identity thieves strike about 10 million Americans each year, according to the Federal Trade Commission Web site. The commission estimated the dollar volume of the crime was $52.6 billion in 2004, with much of that cost accrued by businesses.
With each lost client file or lost employee file, you run the risk of a $3,700 fine per incident.
By the time a person normally realizes that they have a problem, the average credit debt caused by identity theft is $98,000.
To clean up a customer's credit report and eliminate all erroneous debt can take at least 2,000 man hours per customer.
Now how many files do you have?
