Our Staff

Our staff has one focus, to make the secure destruction of documents easy and convenient for every one of our customers in CT.

On-site Shredding

Our onsite document destruction service is the most secure way you can destroy your private papers because they never leave your CT location without being completely destroyed. One of our commercial shredding trucks is sent to your home or office. Then your paper records are placed into a security bin to protect your files when they are taken to the waiting paper shredding truck just outside. At the truck, an automated system will lift the bin and empty your files directly into the shredder. Your documents are then completely destroyed into small unreadable paper particles. You can also see your documents being destroyed with the onboard camera system on all of our mobile trucks.

Shredding for Businesses

Every business in CT needs information destruction services the only question is do they need an ongoing service or an occasional service. FileShred gives you the option with our One-time or Scheduled Shredding services.

One-time Shredding – Securely destroying your business records is important for the security of the private information of your customers, employees and your business even if you don’t need those files anymore. FileShred makes professional onsite shredding services available to every business in CT regardless of how often you need us even if it is just once. Our onetime document destruction service is available whenever you call us.

Scheduled Shredding – If your business needs to dispose of business records regularly FileShred offers an easy way to do that with our scheduled document destruction services.

Hard Drive Destruction

You may not realize it but everything you do on your computer is recorded on your hard drive even if you didn’t save it. Not only documents are saved, credit card transactions for online purchases, pictures, videos, websites you have visited, emails and on and on. When it’s time to replace your computer the hard drive needs to be removed and destroyed to protect any information on the hard drive. FileShred will come to your CT home or office to destroy your hard drive so the information can never be accessed again.

Certificate of Destruction

The certificate of destruction is a formal document that evidences the secure destruction of your paper records and hard drives.  This document is important to keep on file to be compliant with Federal and State Privacy Laws. The certificate of destruction should include the following information;

  • The client’s name and address
  • Date of the Destruction
  • Location the destruction was performed
  • Shredding company’s representative that performed the destruction with signature
  • Client’s representative that was present with signature
  • Description of how the destruction was performed
  • Description of what was destroyed

It is important to note that you should have some type of supporting documents, in addition to the certificate of destruction, that give specific detail of what paper records were destroyed such as “Payroll Records 2009”.  It will not be necessary for hard drives since the certificate of destruction will list the hard drives by serial number.
