Secure Shredding

It is important to shred because not only is it required in several laws (HIPAA, FACTA, GLBA, and more); but shredding protects your customers privacy,  prevents identity theft,  protects your employees privacy, and it protects your company and shareholders by safeguarding proprietary trade information.  But why not just shred your own documents?  Why outsource with a  secure document shredding company?


  • By using an office shredder and simply discarding shreds in the trash, all you have done is shown dumpster divers what is important.  Shredded materials from an office scanner are relatively simple to reassemble.

J.W. Records Management uses a pierce and tear technique, making it virtually impossible to piece documents back together.  J.W. Records Management also shreds massive amounts of documents and materials with several companies resulting in co-mingled shreds and making it impossible to reconstruct a single document.


  • Employees are often too busy to take the time to go through the inconvenience of putting everything they should destroy through a slow office shredder.  Often times, newer employees are given the job of handling the confidential paperwork that needs to be shredded.

Rather than taking the chance of busy employees cutting corners by throwing away paperwork when they do not have time to shred or new employees handling confidential paperwork, J.W. Records Management provides secure containers at no cost where employees can securely and conveniently deposit the documents that need to be shredded.


  • Shredding documents in an office shredder provides no verifiable record of ongoing regulatory compliance, and in the event of a privacy violation, audit, or complaint it is likely that a company will be asked to verify its compliance to information protection regulations.

J.W. Records Management provides clients with a Certification of Destruction after every shred.


  • Office shredders have a tendency to break down and cannot handle binders, paper clips, staples, or covers.

J.W. Records Management trucks require no removal of paper clips, staples, or binder clips and can shred covers.  By outsourcing with J.W. Records Management you no longer have to worry about the hassle of often repairing or replacing an office shredder.  Employees simply drop documents into the secure containers and we handle the rest.


There are two common myths about outsourcing:Confidential On-Site Document Destruction Service


Myth #1: Outsourcing is more expensive than shredding it ourselves.

  • It is actually cheaper to outsource than it is to use an office shredder.  The only way that having your own shredder is less expensive is if your employees do not use it.


Myth #2: We do not have enough material or our company is too small to warrant a shredding service.

  • No organization is too small to benefit from outsourcing their shredding.  Studies show that identity thieves target smaller businesses before going after the larger ones.  An office with just a few employees can generate over one hundred pounds of paper every month.
