Document Shredding Services

Data security relies on sensitive documents and files being completely destroyed. Our secure document shredding services provide regulatory compliant document storage containers and reliable pickup, transportation, and destruction.


“The Orthopaedic Center has 21 locations across Alabama and Tennessee, and TriHaz Solutions has managed our medical waste for several years. They are very responsive – “Johnny-on-the-spot” whenever I need to add a service or have a question! Before TriHaz, we had to use several vendors for our different locations, and with their bundled services, we can include secure document destruction. This is much more efficient, with one pickup and one invoice. Plus, we have no worries about compliance since our waste is being properly transported, treated, and disposed.”

Is Shredding Documents Good Enough?

Shredding documents is generally considered a secure method of disposing of sensitive information to prevent unauthorized access or identity theft. It effectively destroys paper documents, making it extremely difficult for someone to piece them back together and retrieve confidential information. However, for highly sensitive or classified materials, additional disposal measures may be necessary beyond shredding, such as pulping or incineration, to ensure that the information is completely irrecoverable. Additionally, digital data should be securely erased or destroyed through appropriate methods tailored to the media type.

What Documents Should Not Be Shredded?

Documents that should not be shredded are those that are still active, required for ongoing legal, financial, or personal reasons, or are mandated by law to be kept for a certain period. This includes:
  • Legal documents such as birth certificates, marriage licenses, divorce decrees, and death certificates.
  • Financial records like current tax returns, recent bank statements, and documents related to ongoing investments or loans.
  • Personal identification documents, including passports, driver’s licenses (unless expired and replaced), and Social Security cards.
  • Current insurance policies and active warranties or service contracts.
Before shredding any document, it’s essential to review it carefully to ensure that it is no longer needed and that no legal requirement exists for its retention.
