Protect your identity by securely shredding and disposing of documents containing your personal data.
More than ever, identity theft is an ongoing danger – and shredding documents and other sensitive materials is still the safest way to keep your information out of a thief’s hands. The 2017 Identity Fraud Study, released by Javelin Strategy & Research, found that $16 billion was stolen from 15.4 million U.S. consumers in 2016, compared with $15.3 billion and 13.1 million victims a year earlier.
In the past six years, identity thieves have stolen over $107 billion from Americans.

Protect Your Information
State and federal laws mandate businesses to properly dispose of documents that may contain the personal information of employees, and many companies take it upon themselves to shred documents containing intellectual property, trade secrets, etc.
This method of protection isn’t just reserved for big business! With our document shredding services, you can properly dispose of any and all sensitive documents to ensure your identity isn’t stolen.
Any document containing personally identifiable information (PII) should be shredded, including your name. If you just throw your documents in the trash, they can become public property – meaning you no longer have the rights to them! Shredding your documents is far safer than throwing them away.
It’s best to shred any document that contains the following pieces of PII:
- Social Security Number
- Date of Birth
- Account Numbers
- Family Information
If you’re unsure whether a document’s personal information could put you at risk, it’s better to be safe than sorry!
Feel free to contact us with any questions, or simply bring your documents into any of our convenient locations!
