The Purpose of a NAID Certification


NAID, the National Association for Information Destruction is a voluntary program, allowing shredding service providers to become AAA certified and fall into an elite category of document destruction services. With this certification, NAID members will be subject to both scheduled and unannounced audits, to ensure they are using best practices in document destruction including “mobile and/or plant-based operations in paper or printed media, micro media, computer hard drive destruction, and/or computer hard drive sanitization.”

The rigorous process helps companies around the world to set the standard on document destruction and abide by laws and regulations protecting the proper disposal of confidential information

Each NAID member must operate under the strict guidelines offered and pass the audit with flying colors to become certified. Make sure your document destruction and professional shredding service are NAID certified. For more information on the NAID Certification, click here.

Always know, Mobile Record Shredders have a AAA NAID Certification. Your documents are in good hands with us.

Identity Theft – Don’t Fall Victim

Identity Theft is more common than you think. And unfortunately, until it happens to you, you will never know the extent of damage it can cause. But luckily, it is easier than you think to protect yourself from falling victim to this horrible crime.

Proper disposal of your documents is the easiest and most affordable way to protect yourself. By hiring a shredding company to dispose of your documents, it is easier than you think to keep your documents safe.

All paperwork that has personal information, such as tax documents, bank statements, credit card offers and more can be shred and destroyed. At Mobile Record Shredders you can choose how often you have your documents shred and what needs to be shred. You don’t need to remove all of the staples and it is much more time efficient and cost-effective than doing it yourself.

To shred or not to shred? That is the question.

Stop Identity Theft through Shredding.

The Supreme Court has stated that the “expectation of privacy in trash left for collection in an area accessible to public… is unreasonable.” This expectation is exactly why identity theft is so prevalent and why thieves feel the need to dig through your trash to find confidential information.

The solution to this problem is to shred. Shredding allows you to properly dispose of documents containing sensitive information without putting your information in harm's way. You can literally shred anything that has a signature, social security number, medical and legal information, account numbers and more.  See a long list of items to shred below:

.                Shipping Labels

·                Bank and ATM receipts and statements

·                Canceled and void checks

·                Credit card statements, bills, carbon copies, receipts

·                Documents containing maiden names

·                Address labels from junk mail and magazines

·                Birth certificate copies

How Paper Shredding is Saving the Environment


It’s more than just a piece of paper you are shredding. It’s also something that help better the environment if disposed of correctly.

According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, when you throw paper away, it becomes approximately 33% of the municipal sold waste stream, making the largest component of that waste stream. Why continue to add to the growth when you can do something to help solve the problem?

Recycle! It’s really that easy. When it comes to paper shredding, we recycle 100% of the paper that is shred. Recycling paper not only conserves resources, but also prevents emissions of greenhouse gasses and pollutants, saves energy, stimulates growth of greener technologies, creates jobs, and reduces the need for additional landfills.

The paper industry has set a goal to recycle and recover 70% of the paper consumed by Americans each year by 2020. One ton of recycled paper save 3.3 cubic yards of landfill space. That math adds up to saving an area that is approximately the same size as Washington D.C.  Impressive at the least.

Do your part to help save the environment and shred. Use a service like ours and we will do the recycling for you. It’s as easy and simple as that.

What is Purge Shredding- and when should I do it?

What is Purge Shredding?

When a business or individual needs to have a big amount of documents shredded for a one-time event, it is called purge shredding. These are documents that no longer need to be kept and are past the time required for record keeping. It is for businesses that don't normally need ongoing shredding services; and individuals who have compiled a vast amount of personal documents that they are cleaning out of storage areas or old files.

How Often Should I do it?

Most purges are done once a year, however you can request a one-time purge whenever it is necessary and have accumulated a lot of documents. Purges can include any type of shredding service, where we come to you on site and shred the documents right there or off site where we can pick up the documents for you and bring back to our facility for shredding.

Sometimes a one time purge may be all you need, but if you find yourself with many documents around the same time each year a routine purge service may be more cost-effective in the long run, and can protect the company better by limiting liability and the chance of a data breach. The scheduled ongoing purges are agreed upon by you and the shredder and you no longer have to worry about what to do with your confidential documents.

How do I locate a Shredder?

Do you have questions on how to prepare your documents for purge shredding or how often you should schedule a purge? We can help! Our staff of experts can help you with any of your purge shredding questions. Give us a call at (719) 544-5460, for any pricing or prepping questions you may have or check out our website.
