Why Document Shredding

In 1988, the United States Supreme Court in California v. Greenwood helped define privacy rights as it relates to material discarded as trash. In its ruling, the Supreme Court stated that there could be no expectation of privacy in trash left accessible to the public.

Research has found that at least nine types of people are known to go through trash:
  • Criminals
  • Investigators
  • Employees
  • Journalists
  • Scavengers
  • Janitorial service employees
  • Competitors (or their agents)
  • Trash hauling companies
  • Law enforcement
Think about it:
  • Would you hand your competitor your customer list or your price list?
  • Should your employees know how much other employees are earning or where they live?
  • Would you hand your customers your purchase orders showing how much you paid for the goods you sold them?
  • Should your employees’ private information or your bank information be handed to someone of questionable morals?
  • Do you think a journalist or the police arriving at your place of business unannounced has a chance of being a good thing?

The answers to the questions are pretty obvious. However, if you are carelessly throwing information into the trash assuming it will never be seen again, you may be making a huge mistake. Don’t take the chance. Call Weaver SecurShred today!

Need More Reasons?
  • Two things are certain:
    1. Every business has information that must remain private.
    2. You can not securely or economically keep all of it forever.
  • There comes a time when some information needs to be disposed of. How you do that is the $64,000 question. Actually, it may be a multi-million dollar question if you do not do it properly.
  • There is a whole alphabet of reasons to shred—FERPA, HIPPA, EEA, GLBA, SOX, FACTA… You must comply with these regulations to protect and destroy information. Failure to do so could result in steep fines, very unhappy employees and lost customers. See It’s the Law section.
  • The penalties for violating HIPAA include fines that can top $500,000 and up to 10 years in prison. For Gramm Leach Bliley, it can be $1,000,000 and up to 10 years in prison. For FACTA, it can be actual damages, statutory damages of up to $1,000 per employee and Federal fines up to $2,500 for each violation
  • Incidental records (“non-records” consisting of extra copies, drafts, routing slips, printed e-mails, written notes, etc.) comprise up to 60% of the waste generated in an office environment. Generally these records are not included in the written document retention and disposal policy; however they are admissible as evidence in legal proceedings
  • For the seventh year in a row, identity theft & fraud were at the top of the FTC’s complaint list
  • Identity theft is the fastest growing crime in America and occurs every three seconds
  • Americans have spent over 300 million hours resolving issues related to identity theft

Economics

If you are shredding in house you may think you are saving money. Click here to visit “You Shred – We Shred.” This page examines the steps, costs and lost productivity involved with in house shredding. In most companies, it is more economical to Weaver-SecurShred than shred in house. In addition, with Weaver-SecurShred you have Certificates of Destruction as evidence that materials are being destroyed on a regular basis. Also, with Weaver-SecurShred handling your destruction needs, there is no need for purchasing your own shredding equipment.

Weaver-SecurShred is a plant based shredding operation utilizing the latest, most efficient equipment in the destruction of your information. Weaver-SecurShred uses a secure box truck for collecting your containers. This allows our driver to be in and out of your facility much faster as there is no waiting for the materials to be shredded in your parking lot. This also avoids the cost of a mobile shred truck costing as much as $250,000. These large expenses and inefficiencies by mobile shredders will show up on your invoice.
