Witnessed Shredding: Fun to Watch, Peace of Mind

Want to watch professional shredders shred your documents? Then “witnessed shredding” is for you!

Witnessed shredding simply means having the ability to observe the shredding process. It’s usually associated with mobile shredding services, but it can also be available at shredding plants.

There are a few ways you can witness your shredding project:

Witness At Your Location with Mobile Shredding

When you use mobile shredding, a shred truck will come to you along with a background- checked, highly trained shred technician. They will load your papers into the truck, and you can watch via a small monitor mounted on the side of the truck your documents being shredded.

Mobile shredding is a convenient service because you don’t have to leave your home or office, the shredder comes to you, and you get the peace of mind that all your papers have been thoroughly and safely shredded.

Watch From a Closed-Circuit TV at a Shredding Facility

With offsite shredding, you can watch through a closed-circuit television as your documents are shredded into indecipherable pieces using our cross-hatch commercial shredders at their facility(Learn more here).

Offsite shredding allows you to visit the plant, see how the process works, and see your papers go from documents to bales of paper ready to be recycled.

Value of Witnessed Shredding

With witnessed shredding, you can have assurance that your personal or company documents are destroyed while you watch. In addition, it ensures the chain of custody that your files and/or products remain secure until you receive a certificate of destruction. Also, if your company must follow HIPAA regulations, you can rest assured that you have the proof of secure destruction. After all, you saw it with your own eyes!
