What is “Purge Shredding”?
Purge shredding is the process of shredding many paper documents all at once. This is different than a recurring shred service because it’s a one-time occurrence, rather than an ongoing scheduled service. It can happen any time of year and be booked for on-site or off-site shredding
When Would Be A Good Time For Purge Shredding?
When your company has a large volume of documents that all reach their retention date around the same time and legally you no longer are required to keep them.
You don’t feel you need ongoing shredding services.
You are cleaning out your company’s storage closets and discover boxes of old records you no longer need.
You are running out of space to add more documents to storage.
You are in the process of converting from paper to electronic storage.
Can You Setup an Annual Purge?
Yes! Many businesses request a one-time shredding purge, but you have the option of planning for an annual shredding purge following a “spring cleaning” idea or if their business is built around tax season or any kind of annual event. This helps keep the piles of paper down and also gets employees into the habit of preparing for a purge on a certain date every year.
How Is Purge Shredding Preformed?
First you choose to have either on-site shredding or off-site shredding. Either way, our trucks will come to your location and do all the heavy lifting for you! And when it’s done, you will receive verification that your papers were completely shredded and recycled.
Mobile shredding is fun because there is a camera on the side of the truck, and you get to watch it shred! Our shred trucks will come to your location and perform the shredding right there. If you’re curious about the rate for your project, give us a call at 888-777-2099 and we can give you a quote within minutes.
Since the truck doesn’t shred the documents while you watch, this is less expensive than mobile shredding. Simply have your paper picked up and transported to our secure shredding facilities. Once the shredding is complete, you will receive a Certificate of Destruction and a recycling report to verify destruction and recycling of your paper.
