Document & Hard Drive Shredding Experts
Government offices produce thousands of documents daily and immense amounts of digital information. Even the most mundane records can contain personally identifiable information or sensitive data, so when documents, media, and hard drives age out of retention requirements or are replaced by newer technologies, it’s important to dispose of them securely and safely.
At Patriot Shredding, we offer document shredding and hard drive shredding services that are secure, verifiable, and compliant with all standards applicable to handling sensitive or classified materials.
We offer onsite and drop-off document shredding and can provide secure bins and containers to make the process seamless and convenient. Our shredding services are available weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, bi-monthly, quarterly, or on custom schedules to keep up with your facility’s needs.
Our hard drive shredding services completely destroy the digital information the devices contain and the physical media itself.
We securely destroy hard drives, optical media, flash drives, magnetic tape cartridges, and more, and the materials are processed for recycling afterward.
