What Is Mobile Shredding?

Oct 14, 2021

When you manage an office, you generate a significant amount of paperwork. Whether your paper trail is of the more literal kind or digital, you need someone to help you protect your company’s sensitive information.

It’s rare, though, for managers and other parties to have the time they need to safely dispose of said information.

That’s where mobile shredding comes into play. Mobile shredding services let you invite a third party into your office. While you continue to attend to your day-to-day responsibilities, a mobile shredding service can pick up your sensitive documents and dispose of them.

You can work with mobile shredding services to ensure your access to secure disposal containers. These containers will make it easier than ever for team members to remove sensitive documents from your property without compromising the material therein.

What Are the Benefits of Mobile Shredding?

Mobile shredding is an expense you have to factor into your budget, but that doesn’t mean that it’s not worth it. The benefits of mobile shredding include (but are not limited to):

Rapid Disposal

The average day in the office is far from slow. When you have meetings to make, people to supervise, and products to release, you may not feel as though you have the time to safely dispose of your compromised hardware.  While you can’t compromise your busy schedule, letting your hardware go unprotected can put the whole of your business at risk.

This is where mobile disposal comes into play. You can schedule a pick-up with a representative in your area and have them dispose of your sensitive information. Representatives can take not only your old papers but hard drives as well, all the while ensuring that your information remains out of ill-meaning hands.

Environmentally Friendly

Recycling has long been a well-lauded practice, but not everyone remembers how and when it’s appropriate. When it comes to the care and keeping of your sensitive documents, you may be loath to send your paperwork off for alternative use. Once again, mobile shredding teams can help you both protect your private information and reduce your carbon footprint. SEAM Services in North Dakota ensures that your private information is effectively disposed of, with paperwork being removed from your site in little to no time at all.
From there, we’ll shred and remove any sensitive information from the documents in question, then send what remains safely off to a recycling center.

Reduced Presence of Sensitive Materials On-Site

Industry secrets are secrets for a reason. Each business has private information that it wants to keep out of the hands of its competitors, even if it’s consumer data. When you have these kinds of materials on-site, you risk exposure. Clients can share what they learn by accident, while in-house team members may sell off your secrets for their own benefit.  The sooner you can remove sensitive materials from your workplace, the safer your company’s essential secrets are going to be.

Mobile shredding services make this process simple. Not only do they remove your paperwork and hardware from the office, but they also make it almost impossible for snooping parties to weed through the trash for your private information.
