Secure Document Destruction

The Privacy Act and other government legislation requires compliance to strict privacy and data security laws. Utilising a secure destruction service for removal of any sensitive or confidential information can eliminate any non-compliance to these laws as well as the likelihood of any identity or intellectual property theft. These bins can be locked, with keys provided and you can place most paper types into this bin, with or without staples or paperclips. Some services also allow you to securely destroy ring binders, archive boxes and other media types. Bins are transported to an accredited facility and the contents destroyed within a secure environment. Service providers can also produce a certificate of destruction if required.

Secure destruction doesn't just relate to paper. Check out the Secure Product Destruction option for any other secure destruction needs you may have.
