Shred-it helps firms comply with privacy laws.
"Shred-it helps real estate companies throughout Manhattan that gather sensitive information such as credit histories bank statements and tax documents destroy these documents in a cost-effective and efficient manner," said Jeff Cohen, sales representative, Shred-it, New York.
"For as little as $100 a month, a company can shred hundreds of documents, protecting itself from severe governmental penalties freeing up valuable employee time, and reducing noise pollution in the office."
Shred-it places locked and secure consoles that hold hundreds of pounds of paper, folders and binders in offices throughout Manhattan and surrounding boros. Shred-it's bonded and insured customer service representatives pick up the contents of the bins and shred them on-site in the trucks on a weekly, bi-weekly or monthly basis. The truck's proprietary cross-cut shredders can destroy up to 1,500 pounds of paper--complete with binder clips, staples and other non-paper items--in one hour. After each shred, the company gets an invoice with a document of destruction that gives Shred-it complete legal liability for ensuring that all documents are shredded and disposed of properly.
Because Shred-it recycles all shredded paper into low-grade paper products such as tissue and paper towels, each Shred-it Invoice and document of destruction shows companies how many trees they have saved throughout the year.
