Are you spending hours every month at your office shredding paper? Driving all over town looking for a drop-off location? There must be an easier solution! In this article we go over some of the advantages and benefits of using a mobile paper shredding service as opposed to DIY shredding or using a brick and mortar shredding service.

Before jumping into some of the advantages and benefits, first we will describe what the mobile paper shredding service entails.

On either a scheduled based pickup, or on an as needed basis, the mobile paper shredding truck will come to your business and collect the sensitive documents. Once the material is shredded, a certificate of destruction will be given to keep as evidence that you have a privacy compliant shredding program in place.
