Security Shredding vs Recycling
April 13, 2016
Posted by JD Stride

What separates a recycling company from a shredding company is that a shredding company has no interest in the value of the material it shreds. It’s only interest is in protecting it’s clients information and product. At In Confidence all material is shredded through our accredited industrial shredders. After being destroyed the material is then sent for recycling.

A recycling company makes it’s money from the value of the material it sells locally or overseas. It loses control once the material is sold and often does not take responsibility for the ultimate destruction of the paper and product. There is no practical means of establishing the exact date that a record is destroyed. In the event of an audit or litigation, this could be legal necessity. Furthermore, if something of a private nature should surface, the selection of this unsecured process could be interpreted negligent.
