Under this program, the certification application and associated fees cover only individual locations. If a NAID member operates in multiple locations, each location must pass the audit to be certified.

Local Document Destruction is a Good Investment
When thinking about keeping your documents safe and secure, it’s best to have a separate company take care of your shredding needs. Assigning an internal employee with the task of shredding decreases employee time and overall profits. By hiring a shredding service, you are benefiting your business and potentially making your company more profitable.
Mobile Record Shredders can shred your documents on site and provides a certificate of disposal once documents are shred. This allows you to visually confirm your document disposal as well as gives you peace of mind when getting rid of confidential documents. We also have secure bins that you can keep at your location that allow you to keep documents safe until we pick them up for shredding.
Not only does hiring a serve allow you to free up important employee work time, it also ensures your documents are safe and secure. Contact us for more information about the services we offer.
