The Importance of Lockable Shred Bins
Document shredding is critical in protecting sensitive information from exposure, but what’s of equal importance is the way in which documents are managed and disposed before destruction.
What does this mean exactly?
Far too often, recycling bins are used for more than standard recyclable material; while paper is of course recyclable, it should only be placed in your recycling bin if it is 100% free from sensitive content. If your employees are tossing customer files, budgets, marketing plans, or price lists carelessly into your blue bins because of sheer convenience, this can present many problems for your business in the future.
Recycling bins lack security; without locking mechanisms anyone is free to sort through your bin, which means theft can easily occur and can lead to fraudulent behaviour if discovered by the wrong individual. Not only that, your compliance is on the line if you fail to properly protect sensitive documents. You must meet demanding compliance rules and regulations, and you need to ensure you do everything possible to protect your employees, customers, and business from information exposure.
Shred Bins Keep Your Information Safe
If you have records that are no longer relevant but do contain information deemed sensitive, but always place these in secure, lockable collection bins, and NOT your recycling bin. At Tri-State Shredding, we provide our clients with these bins free of charge, when you arrange a scheduled document shredding program with our team. We will service these containers on-site at your location once they reach capacity or once your pre-arranged service date arrives.
When clients require scheduled shredding services, either regularly or semi-regularly, it is important to ensure proper storage while they await shredding. Secure shred bins and containers are the perfect option for a secure and organized way to store sensitive records. Tri-State Shredding offers many different types and sizes of containers so you can select the one that best suits your needs. We have a variety so you can choose the type and size that fits in with the décor, space limitations, and location of your office. These containers include consoles with bags, small and large bins on wheels and larger consoles. All are equipped with locks to maintain your confidentiality.
