Disposal of Confidential Documents
Confidential documents need good handling in disposal as is required by law. Any personally identifiable information must be destroyed. It should not be reconstructed in any event. There are levels of shredding that take into account the sensitivity of the documents being shredded. These levels follow US government guidelines in handling shredding documents. Levels 1-4 use blades that cut paper into pieces as small as one-sixteenth of an inch. If your documents need to be even smaller, you can use levels 5-7 which cut paper into pieces smaller than a millimeter. This ensures that regardless what you do with the paper, it can be reassembled in any legible way.
Paper Recycling Shredded Documents
After shredding there is the question of what to do with the shredded paper. Paper recycling is a good way of disposing paper safely. This disposal method is economical and better for the environment. When you recycle you save on natural resources such as water oil and electricity. You can save up to 7,000 gallons of water and 4100 kW of electricity that can power a home for up to 6 months.
Security of Recycling
Shredded confidential documents can be safely recycled if the shredding meets the security shredding threshold according to the documents’ sensitivity. Observing security in recycling shredded confidential documents involves keeping a clear chain of custody. This lowers the risks of the shredded material falling into the wrong hands. Proof of destruction must be shown with the issuance of a Certificate of Destruction.
