Shred local with Royal Document Destruction

The Benefits of Shredding Local

It’s no secret that protecting sensitive data is a huge concern. While there are tons of document destruction companies, having a local shredding company on your team can help save time, money, and provide an additional layer of protection to documents being destroyed. No company wants to run the risk of having internal documents and information compromised. When using a local company, you’re able to build a relationship with the owner and employees to quickly resolve any issues if they arise. You’re also able to monitor what’s going on, including utilizing on-site services if they are available. It’s much easier to run over to a company that’s in town to help solve a problem or utilize your risk management team rather than having to travel long distances. For some organizations, having a document disposal company that’s far away just won’t do.


Declutter with Royal Document Destruction

Declutter Your Home or Office with Royal Document Destruction

Document Destruction, Business Shredding

No matter what the protocol is at your office, almost all businesses are guilty of letting the clutter pile up over time. Busy office managers and supervisors swear they'll get to it soon, but that day takes months to actually come around. If you're like most companies throughout the US, you likely start clearing everything out either at the very end or very beginning of the year. But ideally, you should be decluttering throughout the year rather than waiting for it to pile up — and it's not just because everyone in the office will work better when they're not distracted by clutter. If you want to stay compliant with state and local laws, you need to be getting rid of sensitive information so there are fewer chances of a security breach. 


Schedule Retention and Document Destruction

Document Destruction

When your business receives or creates documents, you should have a list with the received date or creation date. This creates a retention schedule so you know when you can send the documents out for document destruction. In many cases, your business has to save records for seven to ten years – but holding onto documents for so long eventually causes a space issue. Instead of running out of space or having to rent a less-than-secure storage locker, creating a schedule retention list and destroying the documents that are outdated keeps your documents safer.
