Disposing of documents with peronal information can be complicated. It’s important to make sure you are protecting your identity when you let go of your sensitive information or, in a business setting, to protect your clients’ information. Shredding is the best way to protect you personal and sensitive information. There are a lot of options out there, depending on your needs or the needs of your business. We’ve compiled a few options to help you let go of your sensitive information.
If you don’t have much sensitive information to dispose of, you can make a small investment in a desktop shredder. A light duty desktop paper shredder is ideal for occasional home or office use. You can find one for around $30.00 like this Aurora Desktop Shredder at Target pictured to the right.
If you have a small business or a lot of shredding to do at home, you can get a free-standing shredder at stores like Costco. Fellows makes several different mid-size shredders in the $100 – $500 range for moderate home or office use like the one pictured to the left. See their selections online at their website here.
Looking for an alternative to buying a shredder? Datasite will help you get rid of your sensitive material by coming to you with a shredding truck for those big shredding jobs. You can alternatively get a document destruction container which is a prepaid box that will be picked up upon request and shredded.
