OUR SERVICES

Secure Document Shredding

Our paper shredding service is an ideal solution to clear space in your business. We supply lockable security bins which we can deliver to your home or office. The bins can be filled with all your confidential records. We then come and pick the bins up for the secure disposal of the contents.

One-Time Archive Box Shredding

Your business may not need regular document shredding services, but you may benefit from one-time shredding. Our purge shredding or one-time shredding does not require a contract and we never charge hidden fees. If you feel burdened by boxes of documents collecting dust or it’s time to purge business and confidential documents, we can help. 

Recurring Shredding

While some businesses only need paper shredding service during annual purges, many businesses in Melbourne can benefit from recurring document shredding. At Shred-M, we offer cost-effective and secure shredding on your schedule. This service includes secure locking bins or consoles to store in your business and protect sensitive documents before shredding.

Our safe document destruction does not require that anyone to sort through your documents, including our technicians or your staff. We do ask however that plastics are not placed in the bins. Plastic contaminants can mean the paper is not able to be recycled.

Simply place the documents in your locked bins and wait for our personnel to arrive. Our equipment does not require any sorting at all; it can handle staples, card stock, discs, binder clips, and paper clips. 

Regardless of the size of your business or your paper shredding needs, our secure document shredding service can be an ideal fit. We take away the risks associated with the storage and disposal of sensitive and confidential information so you can rest easy and focus on growing your business.

Why Outsource Document Destruction in Melbourne

Outsourcing your Melbourne document shredding is more convenient, secure, efficient, and economical. There are many security risks associated with in-house paper shredding and decisions as to what documents should be shredded are left up to staff members for a higher risk for confidentiality breaches and employee error.

Secure shredding is considered a reasonable step your business should take to destroy confidential information. Our services help your business remain in compliance with the Privacy Act. Secure shredding service is also what your customers expect; they want to know their private information is confidential and no one will access their sensitive information.

In addition to security risks, in-house shredding can be costly. It requires trusting employees and paying them for their time to dispose of documents. While this may not seem like a big deal if your business has very minor document disposal needs, it can add up to hours every week.

Our Melbourne paper shredding service includes free secure bins to store your documents on-site. On your chosen schedule or when you need us, we will arrive and shred your documents on-site or at our secure facility. Our industrial-grade equipment can shred a large volume of documents in mere minutes. We do not even require the removal of staples, binder clips, or discs which means no one will need to sort through your documents prior to destruction.

Outsourcing your document destruction is:

  • Secure. Our licensed professionals understand the importance of security. On-site shredding is done under your supervision to be sure no one views confidential or personal information. If you choose off-site destruction, our facility is alarmed, CCTV-monitored, and has restricted access.
  • Environmentally friendly. We recycle all paper materials we destroy to keep Australia beautiful and green.
  • Easy. Our professionals make the process as simple as possible from start to finish. We provide secure, locking bins and containers to store in your business. Arrange for scheduled shredding or call us when you need document shredding.
  • Cost-effective. Our document disposal service is a more economical solution to in-house shredding, whether you need one-time shredding or recurring shredding.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you serve all business sizes?

Yes, Shred-M offers shredding options for projects large and small throughout the Melbourne area. We serve small offices, mid-sized businesses, and large companies with customized paper shredding service.

Do I need to sort documents?

No! All you need to do is place documents to shred in the locked bin or container we provide. You do not need to worry about paper clips, staples, or binder clips. Our industrial-grade shredders can handle them without problems. Please do make sure to not include plastics in the bins however.

What happens if our container fills up before a pick-up?

If your container fills up before your scheduled service time, give us a call. We will schedule an early pick-up or on-site shredding. If you notice this happens often, you may want additional containers or a greater frequency of shredding.

What happens to my documents once they're shredded?

When your paper is shredded we bail all the materials so they can be recycled into new paper products.

Is your shredding service secure?

Our shredding service is a secure end-to-end solution.. Our shredding facility has CCTV monitoring, alarms, and restricted access. Our bins are locked at all times and so are our trucks. Our personnel are I.D tagged and police checked. 

Isn't recycling documents enough?

To get the full scrap value from office documents, recycling companies typically use low-paid and unscreened workers who sort through papers extensively. Paperwork may be stored indefinitely until there is a large enough volume to sell. This is not a secure way to dispose of paperwork that may contain confidential or personal information. Recycling trucks that pickup paper for recycling are not fully sealed and it is common that paper spills onto roads and other public locations. Our trucks are fully sealed and secured.
