ImageX provides various services to streamline your paperless digitization goals, as well as secure document shredding to assist you in getting rid of all of your paper! There are various reasons people turn to shredding—whether it’s for policy reasons at work or security concerns—and we are happy to provide any services needed. When it comes to document shredding, it is required by law that documents be destroyed securely. This is especially true for companies in the medical, legal, and government fields. Legal requirements for these fields include having the documents shredded and destroyed, then providing evidence that the shredding process was successful.

Can I just take documents directly to a recycling facility?
Though all documents end up in the recycling plant, the state in which they arrive matters. If you take them directly to a recycling plant without getting shredding first, you run the risk of exposing your data to the people at the recycling plant. It’s safer to get your documents shredded privately and effectively before they are taken to a recycling facility.
