WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF SHREDDING DOCUMENTS?

At PACE, we believe there are many benefits to shredding documents, especially the information-sensitive ones. Benefits include:

Having a peace of mind: Business owners and their managers can cultivate a piece of mind knowing that their sensitive information is being properly destroyed.


Compliance: Businesses and companies such as hospitals that deal with sensitive information need a safe and compliant way of discarding printed out information. At PACE, we have the NAID AAA certification. Having this certification can help a business decrease their risk of a security breach.

Decrease in tasks for employees: Instead of having employees spend their time shredding documents, PACE gives you the ability to store the documents that need to be destroyed in a secure lockbox that our employees pick up.

Environmental Friendly: Instead of sending your documents to the landfill, PACE gives you the ability to destroy and recycle paper at the same time.

WHAT DOES THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION FOR INFORMATION DESTRUCTION (NAID) CERTIFICATION MEAN?

The NAID AAA Certification is a voluntary certification program for companies providing information destruction services (shredding). This program was developed by information security professionals that are recognized nationally. Through this certification and the NAID program, members who receive the certification will be audited for mobile and plant-based facilities for paper and printed documents. NAID certifies the qualifications of the certified facilities through cohesive and comprehensive scheduled and unannounced auditing. This certification process supports the needs of organizations nationally by helping them meet the abundance of regulations required to protect their customer’s information. These regulations and laws include:

Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) provides data privacy and security functions to keep medical information safe. Companies run the risk of a security breach when handling customer’s sensitive information. Working with NAID AAA certified facility can decrease this risk.

Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act (FACTA) Final Disposal Rule requires companies to destroy all customer information before it can be thrown away.

FACTA Red Flag Rules requires that audits be made for any companies who have access to customer’s personal information.

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA) is a federal law that protects the privacy of student education records.

No longer do you need to worry about the destruction of your sensitive documents. We have earned the AAA certification through NAID and proudly offer our customers the highest quality document shredding solution.

RECYCLING DOCUMENTS: WHERE DO MY DOCUMENTS GET RECYCLED?

Recycling and destroying sensitive documents with PACE is simple.

PACE Shredding recycles all documents.

PACE Shredding recycles all documents.

1. The sensitive documents are placed in a locked container. 

2. Trucks are deployed to collect containers. 

3. Materials (under lock and human guard) are transported to our secure shredding facility. 

4. In the shredding room, documents are commingled so final baled material can not be reconstructed. 

5. Confidential documents are shredding to 5/16” stripped and baled. 

6. After baling, all materials are released to a paper mill for pulping and recycling. 

7. Then, we issue a certificate of destruction.
