Frequently Asked Questions

Why Should You Shred?

There is no location, industry, or organization that is safe from compromising sensitive information. Without proper confidential document disposal, information often ends up in garbage bins where it is readily available to anyone. Scotia Security Shredding is able to securely shred all your sensitive documents. This will help you or your company safely dispose of sensitive material, while freeing up employees to focus on more valuable tasks!

What are the Benefits of Regular Shredding?

It’s not enough to simply shred sensitive documents every now and then. By destroying records according to a set schedule, a company limits potential security risks, eliminates liability concerns, and ensures that company information remains secret. By not adhering to a shredding program of routinely destroying stored records, a company exhibits suspicious disposal practices that could be negatively construed in the event of litigation or audit.

Who Should Use Shredding Services?

Every company or individual that has confidential information pertaining to customers, clients, patients, or suppliers is under obligation by law to ensure that any personal information is protected. Whether you’re a small or large business, an independent professional, or a government institution, secure shredding services are an ideal solution to help you protect your clients, customers, and company.

What Our Customers are Saying...

"We have had a strong business relationship with Scotia Security Shredding over the last 9 years for our shredding needs in our locations in Nova Scotia.  They provide excellent service, are very attentive and offer great shredding solutions.  During our most recent relocation, they were very accommodating to OUR schedule as we securely disposed of volumes of documentation that we already had in digital form.  We appreciate having a partner to work with us on business solutions that fit our needs."

They provided the necessary materials and resources to ensure the delivery of their shredding services was completed not only in a timely manner but in compliance with provincial and federal privacy legislatures. They are accommodating, responsive, and a pleasure to deal with."
