Recycling and Cross-Shredding
All types of businesses need to shred sensitive documents. Unlike large businesses that usually have shredders on site, most home office professionals do not readily have access to these types of services. But, the need to do this is just as great. Luckily, there are many services out there that allow you to shred and recycle your documents, and recycling in turn helps save the environment.
You may, however, be wondering how you go about finding information about who does this. A simple search of the Internet will turn up many options. Yet, you should not only find someone near your home, but also someone best will fit your needs. So, what do you look for in a shredding company?
First, find someone who recycles the documents after they shred your documents. The landfills of the world are getting pretty filled. More dumping is just not necessary.
Second, look for someone who does cross-shredding. Cross-shredding cuts the paper into small parts that look like confetti. This is very important since simple shredding techniques could allow a criminal to piece back together your sensitive documents. Cross-shredding makes this nearly impossible.
