As a leading provider of San Diego mobile document shredding and paper shredding, Southern California Shredding knows that clients have many different reasons for destroying their materials.

Why Mobile Document Shredding and Paper Shredding?

Typically, individuals and families in San Diego choose residential paper shredding as a way of getting rid of papers that have built up over the years. These might include personal financial records, information on home businesses, or tax documents that are no longer required. The Southern California Shredding approach ensures the security and privacy of this data. Plus, customers receive plenty of other benefits, including additional space in their homes and fewer expenses on storage of these materials.

Often, San Diego businesses decide on paper shredding because they might face serious consequences otherwise. The Supreme Court has ruled that “dumpster diving” is not illegal. As a result, anyone is able to retrieve information that an individual or a business has thrown out with the trash. These “divers” may decide to use data from the garbage to perpetrate crimes such as identity theft, telephone fraud, or industrial espionage. As a result, a company that does not shred its unwanted documents faces exposure in a variety of circumstances. Many businesses oversee employee data such as health care information. If those companies do not properly store this information, or if they dispose of the information in a way that makes the employee privacy vulnerable, companies can lose trust among staff and experience PR nightmares.

Paper shredding allows residential customers to protect themselves and commercial customers to protect their own customers and employees. Additionally, anyone in San Diego should consider mobile document shredding for legal concerns as well. Consumers who use a business’ services must be protected to avoid identity theft. Federal and state laws are in place to ensure the privacy of individuals in several industries, such as banking, finance, and medical care. Whether you are following those laws to protect your own employees or just trying to protect yourself, mobile paper shredding can be a solution for you.

Despite the regulations, there is a factor that some families and businesses still need to consider: paper shredding alone may not be enough to protect information. In the electronic age, it is likely that a company relies on data saved to media such as computer hard drives and CDs. However, information that a person deletes from these sources can still leave traces. Scheduling a hard drive destruction and media destruction drop-off at our facility can help individuals and companies alike completely protect their privacy.
