Offices that engage outsourced document destruction companies expect that their documents will be shredded into the same, small sized particles created by an office shredder but this is largely untrue. Industrial shredders used by document destruction companies actually shred paper into far larger, easily read pieces of paper. In fact, if you saw the size of the shreds created by these industrial shredders, you would be rather surprised and feel very uneasy about where your documents go to after being shredded! Your documents are not destroyed when placed into a wheelie bin and a plastic wheelie bin is definitely not a secure enclosure to store confidential information.
Depending on the role of the employee, information with varying levels confidentiality will be handled. This is why outsourced document destruction is not an effective method of protecting information internally. Information not intended for the eyes of other workers is not destroyed when stored in a wheelie bin and is only removed when the wheelie bin is changed over by the document destruction company. Document destruction companies set guidelines to suit them, because they also Make Money From Your Time, Selling Your Paper For Recycling.
