Simply stated, off site shredding is the process of picking up material for destruction from your location then transferring it to a Tacoma shredding facility for destruction.
Uniformed security professionals remove your secure documents and transport them in a locked truck to a secure shredding facility. Upon the arrival of materials for destruction, the containers are weighed for record keeping. Once recorded, they are then staged to begin the shredding process. The material is fed into the shredder, which processes about 20,000 pounds per hour.
Paper comes out the back side of the shredder where it is baled. Bales are shipped directly to a Tacoma paper company where the material is recycled into new products. A certificate of destruction is issued with the certified weight that verifies that the materials were destroyed in compliance current privacy laws.
