WHY SHREDDING IS A NECESSITY

Based on current Federal regulations, virtually every organization has data that needs to be rendered incapable of use and identification prior to disposal. Today’s environment necessitates that businesses attain and maintain compliance with these regulations or possibly face steep fines. In-house shredding is one possible means of compliance however, according to the National Association for Information Destruction, using a professional destruction contractor such as Vangel is a better choice for several reasons:
  • Safety – even small machines could cause injury if they grab clothing or accessories
  • Savings – No shredder to purchase and maintain
  • Productivity – Employees are more productive when focused on their core responsibilities
  • Security – Company information such as payroll, legal and employment issues, and correspondence should not be exposed to most employees
  • Compliance – In-house shredding will not handle large volumes and may prompt employees to circumvent the destruction process
 

SOURCE SEPARATION: DUAL STREAM RECYCLING

Vangel is different from other shredding companies because we practice source separation–also known as “dual stream recycling.” By keeping your paper separate from bottles and cans, you know for certain that your recycling efforts are not wasted. Your recyclables will really be recycled. Through dual stream recycling, you’re helping to keep those recyclables circulating for as many productive lives as possible – 10 to 20 times more than when mixed together (single stream). Learn more about single stream and dual stream recycling, on our blog.

ON-SITE OR OFF-SITE

At Vangel, we offer both on-site and off-site shredding services to our clients. Off-site shredding means that material is transported in locked, GPS-monitored trucks, usually in locked containers, to a secure shredding facility . On-site shredding is also known as mobile shredding — a truck comes to you, and the paper is shred right there on the premises. No matter if you’re interested in on-site shredding or off-site, it should be your choice. Know what you’re getting and know what you’re paying for. Find out more about on-site vs. off-site shredding.
