Stericycle’s Intends to Discontinue On-site shredding
Stericycle, the company who acquired Shred-it in 2015 is planning on discontinuing their on-site shredding option and want to convert their customers over to off-site shredding. However the Mobile Shredding Association (MSA) is less then thrilled with the company’s move to pull away from on-site shredding, stating it will cause many complications with control over the document chain of custody, removes completely the witness of the destruction and may create a delay in the document shredding process as it will not take place immediately at the clients location, but later off-site. Many clients like the added benefits of on site oppose to off-site which poses more risk. You can read more about this issue on Recycling Today.
