Document Shredding

We can securely destroy your company's sensitive documents.

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.

From mobile shredding services that come to you to offsite bulk shredding, we can design a solution to fit your company’s needs.

Mobile Shredding Services

Whether you prefer to watch the physical destruction of documents for peace of mind or are required to do so by law, our mobile shredding services give you a compliant, convenient way to destroy documents at your location.

Our trained and bonded specialists come to your location in trucks equipped with industrial-grade shredders, allowing you to watch the entire process.

Here’s how it works:

  1. We deliver shred consoles to your location.
  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.
  4. Bins are emptied into an industrial grade shredder that destroys papers beyond recognition.
  5. We transport the shredded materials to an offsite recycling plant.
  6. You receive a certificate of destruction for your records.

Off-site Shredding Services

Our offsite shredding services are perfect for paper-dependent companies that require frequent disposal of large volumes of documents.

Here’s how it works:

  1. You choose your pickup schedule.
  2. We drop off secure, locked shred bins at your location.
  3. You fill the bins with documents to be shredded.
  4. At scheduled intervals, our uniformed specialists pick up your bins in secure trucks.
  5. We transport the bins to a destruction facility that has security around the perimeter and monitored access systems.
  6. Your documents are appropriately destroyed and recycled.
  7. You receive a certificate of destruction with the date and time of shredding.

One-Time Purge Projects

Do you have a bulk paper from a recent tax audit or company move? Our one-time purge services are a secure, cost effective way to destroy confidential records.

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 offsite plant for disposal and recycling. We’ll provide a certified certificate of destruction on request.

No matter which shredding solution you choose, we follow rigorous industry and security standards.

Secure Shred Bins

We place secure, locked shred bins at your location to reduce the risk of your private information falling into the wrong hands. And, unlike some competitors that charge by the pound or hour, we charge by the bin, saving your company money. Choose from 32, 64 or 96-gallon bins. Contact us for pricing.

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. At the 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 employee background screening, compliance with procedures, access controls and security, 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.
