Do you have the right shredding container for your business?
How many times have you walked through an office and inadvertently seen some sensitive information laying on a desk or noticed an associate piling papers in an unsecured cardboard box under their desk?
We get it! No one wants to spend valuable time standing over a desktop shredder or schlepping to the mailroom located all the way across the office. However, these can lead to a serious data breach!
That is why we offer our shredding program clients a variety of shredding containers to suit the different needs of a business. Once you sign up to become a regular shred client, you’ll get a choice of three container styles and four sizes. Our containers offer your business a secure way to deposit your files for shredding.
What’s more, we charge a simple flat fee per container per trip. That means no hidden fees and no surprise charges on your invoice. And the use of our shredding containers is included in that flat fee. We like to keep things simple for our clients!
All Secure Records Solutions bins are equipped with a locking system that makes them secure to protect your sensitive files until they are destroyed. Once you become an SRS client, one of our uniformed drivers will drop off the container(s) of your choice with a key. For security purposes, we suggest that only one person – typically a CFO, COO, or Office Manager – be in charge of the key and keep it in a safe location.

Do several options sound like they may be a fit for your office? You’re not alone. Many businesses use multiple types of containers in different areas. This provides convenience for staff and security for sensitive information. A law office, for example, may keep a 96-gallon bin in the work room, put a console in the area that houses several paralegals or associates, and provides a compact container at the front desk. This ensures convenience for your staff and protects confidential information.
