ARE YOU PROPERLY DISPOSING
OF PAPER DOCUMENTS?

Ninety-five per cent of business information is still stored on paper,1 and considering every Australian office worker uses about 10,000 sheets of A4 paper each year,2 this adds up.

While tossing that paper into the recycling bin is good for the environment, it leaves your organisation vulnerable. That is why document shredding is so important; and when it comes to secure shredding, you need a partner that goes the extra mile to safeguard your security and reputation.

    Five Steps to Secure Shredding
  • A document shredding service can help you tame the paper trail. Look for one with these capabilities:
  • Transports your paper documents in scanned and tracked bins to a secure facility.
  • Commingles paper assets with those from other organisations, making it impossible to reconstruct any information.
  • Uses a double cross-cut shredding process to turn the paper documents into confetti-sized bits.
  • Bales the shredded pieces before recycling them, keeping the material out of landfills.
  • Gives you a Certificate of Destruction verifying your information has been destroyed, helping you meet compliance standards.

Did you know that 3 cubic yards of landfill space can be saved by each ton of recycled paper?3 Recall shreds over 460 tons of paper per day and can help your business properly dispose of paper documents. Learn more about Recall Secure Destruction Services.
