Document Shredding

Document Shredding Services

Save time and mitigate risk by letting Vital Records Control securely destroy your documents.

If you’re like most businesses, your company generates a lot of paper documents. Though destroying documents onsite with a hand-fed shredder may seem like a reasonable way to save space, it’s time consuming and can put your information security at risk.

VRC can help. From mobile shredding services that come to you to off-site bulk shredding, we can design a solution to fit your company’s needs.

  2. You fill the bins with documents to be shredded.
  3. Uniformed VRC technicians pickup and transport shred bins to a shredding truck parked onsite.

We’ll drop off NAID-certified shred bins at your location. Once they’re filled with documents, our bonded staff will pick them up and transport them to a secure off-site plant for disposal and recycling. We’ll provide a certified certificate of destruction on request.

  • Chain-of-Custody Procedures
    Our shredding solutions include automated retention programs and compliance management.Our shred bins and documents are barcoded and tracked throughout the destruction process. And, each of our shredding facilities is governed by a strict set of chain-of-custody procedures to ensure the safety of your information. At end of each shredding process, we offer a certificate of destruction for your compliance records.
  • NAID AAA Certification
    Your information security is our top priority. To protect your information, we’ve earned NAID AAA certification. And, our destruction facilities must pass unannounced audits that evaluate the following areas:

    • Employee background screening and training
    • Compliance with written procedures
    • Access controls and operational security
    • Destruction equipment
    • Confidentiality agreements and liability insurance
  • Environmentally-Friendly Destruction
    We use an industrial-grade strip shredder to reduce paper to 3/8-inch strips. Then, the shredded particles are baled and sent to a local recycling partner. Paper mills then clean recycled materials and repurpose them into new products, minimizing our environmental impact.Learn more about the benefits of sustainable shredding.
