Paper shredding is not only useful for protecting classified information but is usually mandated by certain laws and regulations (such as HIPAA), especially for commercial companies. Every business gathers confidential, private information from their employees and clients, and often stores it for long periods of time, if not indefinitely. Although many record-keeping strategies have moved from being on paper to being online, old documents may still be sitting around gathering dust. Or your business may be required to keep records in the traditional, paper way. Either way, almost every legal entity will have to deal with the disposal of classified documents and information at some point or another. The question is, how will you handle it?
Although it can be tempting to do the job yourself, using Boston Junk to shred your documents will save you the stress and time that comes with shredding.

No task is too big or small and Boston Junk is always here to help!
Shredding Interval Options:
- One-time: One-time shredding could mean an annual purge, or a singular instance in which you need a stack of documents securely disposed of. Oftentimes when an office or other commercial space decides to clean out their area, they find they have more paper on their hands than they realized. Other times a company decides to go paperless and needs all of their old documents disposed of. This option is ideal for one large purge.
- Regular: Does your company have a lot of paper that constantly needs to be disposed of? If the answer is yes, regular intervals of shredding (such as weekly, monthly, or semi-annually) may be the best option. Companies that place high emphasis on organization and getting rid of clutter will be most likely to go with a regularly scheduled service.
Some ask if shredding is really necessary. Our answer is yes, and here’s why… Identity theft is real and giving thieves access to any personal information (especially so easily) can turn a person’s life upside down. Those who steal information can open multiple bank accounts, access credit cards, run up bills, and draw out loans all in their victim’s name. As a business, you do not want to be held responsible for such an event, so take strict measures to ensure the confidentiality of every employee and client. Their safety is also your safety, and it’s important to take the matter seriously for the sake of everyone involved. Even if the documents are few in number, or contain little information, it is always best to be on the safe side.
