We offer two base services that can be customized to each client’s needs, one-time and ongoing document destruction.  For our one-time or purge service, we charge a price per bin shredded.  The cost per bin is based on the number of bins that will be necessary to destroy your confidential documents.  The more paper records you have to shred the lower the cost per bin.  Our bin is a 95-gallon container that holds 300 pounds of files.  Some shredding companies use a 65-gallon bin that only holds 200 pounds of paper so it is a good idea to ask any company you are considering what size bin they use.  For our ongoing or scheduled service, we also charge a rate per collection container.  We offer several types and sizes of collection containers that stay on-site in your office to disposit of all documents in.  The cost for each container is based on the type, the number of containers, and how often they are serviced.

To remain compliant with these particular laws, you must shred all confidential and outdated information being disposed of.  It is crucial to protect yourself or your business by securely shredding any document that no longer needs to be retained.

Connecticut Privacy Law

Sec. 42-471. Safeguarding of personal information. Social Security numbers. Privacy protection policy. Civil penalty. (a) Any person in possession of personal information of another person shall safeguard the data, computer files and documents containing the information from misuse by third parties, and shall destroy, erase or make unreadable such data, computer files and documents prior to disposal.
