Bethesda Off Site Shredding

Unlike on site shredding, materials are not shredded at your Bethesda location with an off site shredding service. Rather, they are loaded into a secure truck by trained security professionals and then taken to a secure shredding facility for destruction. Once the documents have been destroyed, the shredded materials from your and other clients' shredding projects are co-mingled and baled together. Co-mingling the shredded materials adds an extra layer of security because it makes piecing the materials back together virtually impossible. Finally, the materials are taken to a recycling facility.

Off site shredding is also considerably less time-consuming, because you don't need to watch the process. Off site shredding is compliant with every current federal and Maryland privacy law, including HIPAA and FACTA.


How Off Site Shredding Is Done:


  • Your documents are collected by trained security personnel.

  • Then, they are safely transported to the shredding plant. Only authorized personnel are allowed to come into contact with your documents at the plant.

  • The paper is shredded, compacted, and recycled into new paper.

  • A Certificate of Destruction is provided.

The Certificate of Destruction you receive will contain detailed information about the process, including a certification of the weight of your project and a list of witness signatures. While witnessing the destruction of your documents personally may be preferable, it is also time-consuming and unnecessary, as you can be provided with a list of witnesses that watched the destruction of your documents at the secure facility.
