More Information Requires More Protection
Businesses operating in today’s information age must navigate an ever-changing landscape of regulatory requirements, confidentiality, security and liability issues. One of the most effective ways a business can protect itself is to hire a professional document disposal company to handle their sensitive materials. LB Medwaste has the industrial shredder system for your business needs. Rely on us to minimize your company’s liability, maintain organization, and lessen your storage requirements. Your business can maintain its credit ratings, reputation and security by removing information that could result in fraud, identity theft or corporate espionage.
The Law of the Land
State and federal privacy laws including the new HIPAA regulations, the Gram Leach Bliley Act (GLB), and the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act (FACTA) require that the medical, banking and other business fields are careful with sensitive client information. LB Medwaste can help businesses abide by the guidelines of these laws with an industrial shredder that also helps save time. We can easily handle thick files, computer disks, film and x-rays, and metal clips. Our shredder plan includes on-site containers with a unique “lock box” feature to help maintain privacy. There is also limited contact by any LB Medwaste employee to your sensitive information.
An Off-Site Shredder is Better
Shredding is an excellent, cost effective way to keep your business organized and running smoothly. Our shredders are more efficient than in house systems because they can handle staples and paperclips and very thick paper files. Your company will also be freed from the noise, dust, and disposal of in house shredders. You will also be reassured that no internal employee from your company is responsible for handling sensitive and personal information. Utilizing our shredding services means no maintenance, leasing fees or restrictions that come with personal shredders. Further, you may schedule one time or annual clean ups for yearly spring cleaning organization or time expired documents. Large, annual clean ups will decrease your required storage space and the streamlining will ultimately increase your productivity. One record management company study showed that less than 30% of all information in a company’s files should be stored. 70% are either duplicates or obsolete!
Streamlined Business, Treelined Streams
We use a reliable, ecologically friendly and efficient machine that can operate at 6,000 pounds per hour. Since a typical drawer of files weighs approximately sixty pounds, imagine the ease that LB Medwaste’s shredders can deal with your large or small requirements. Our professional staff will handle your waste discreetly and we are proud to recycle our paper product. Please note that seventeen trees are saved for every ton of paper that is shredded and recycled.
