Off-Site Document Shredding Service

We offer shredding services as an add-on to all our scanning projects. For your convenience, you have the option to add a shredding service to your scanning engagement.

We will take care of the destruction of your paper documents quickly and securely. The shredding is done at one of our facilities after the documents are collected from your office.
Paper accumulates quickly and regularly; but once your papers are scanned and available digitally, shredding is a convenient and affordable option to destroy your mountains of paper and recover the space and expense of hard copy storage.

If you choose to add shredding service to your scanning project, you have 2 options to pick from:

  1. All boxes of paper documents targeted for shredding can be destroyed “On-Site” where the physical shredding is conducted on ARC’s premises, under the watchful eye of one of our Document Imaging Specialists.  This service provides a higher level of security as the box content remains in ARC’s custody and control until it is destroyed.
  2. The alternate service would be to send the boxes to an Off-Site destruction center.  In this case, the boxes will be palletized and transported to the centralized destruction center, where they are destroyed in large batches.

In both cases, you can rest assured that there is an accurate chain of custody process, and tight inventory controls in place, to ensure that only the exact boxes targeted for destruction are actually destroyed.  Also, both services include a Certificate of Destruction, validating that the target boxes have been destroyed as ordered.

In all cases, a specific target list of boxes is generated, and signed off by the customer, preferably by the signature of two different representatives of the customer.  The target list will be verified at least twice, by two different ARC specialists, and the shredding technician, to ensure only the targeted boxes are destroyed as mandated by the list.
