The most important reason to shred is to PROTECT YOUR COMPANY’S PRIVACY
You have a legal responsibility to keep sensitive customer and employee information from falling into the wrong hands.
Securely destroying confidential information limits your liability and protects proprietary company information. If you’re throwing documents away (even if you use a recycler), your information is not secure – the only way to guarantee you’re protecting your company’s integrity and complying with privacy legislation is to destroy your documents.
Shredding frees up space in your office, and if you’re paying an employee to shred in-house, then shredding will also save you money and allow you to focus on your core business. Finally, shredding helps your company do its part to preserve our environment. Chesapeake securely recycles all of your shredded material and helps your company contribute to environmental sustainability.
Shredding Services: An Invaluable Resource
Document shredding doesn’t just save you time and money. It’s a way to protect the information in your care, which can be priceless.
Companies might be tempted to try and implement their own in-house shredding program. While admirable, these efforts are frequently inefficient and ineffective. An employee must be designated to physically sort and perform the shredding, which can take hours out of daily work and cost a company weeks in wasted time.
An in-house shredding machine is a costly investment, which can cost even more when maintenance fees are factored in. Even with all of that money and effort, there’s still no guarantee that the documents and their resulting fragments will be discarded in a way that is compliant with your industry’s privacy legislation.
Professional shredding services remove all the uncertainty and restore your lost time. You and your employees won’t even be required to bring the documents to the truck for disposal. Simply point out what you want shredded, and our uniformed technician will handle the rest.

- Credit card statements or solicitations
- Old travel tickets
- ATM receipts
- Expired forms of ID or credit cards
- Prescription labels
- Old school report cards
