Shred Now for a Smooth Start in 2022

The predictions for 2022 are flying, and are all good reasons for you to consider starting off the year with a shredding purge. Here are some of those predictions along with our advice on how you can respond to protect your information:

Mental health issues due to the ongoing pandemic

Keep your mind clear and your space tidy. What better way to start 2022 than to declutter by shredding outdated documents, loose papers, and overstuffed files? Go through file cabinets, drawers, file boxes, bulletin boards, and junk drawers and make a pile to be shredded. Decluttering your world can reduce stress and improve mental health, whether in the office or at home.

New and more aggressive threats to information security

One way to decrease the likelihood of having your information stolen and your brand misused is to have anything with sensitive information as well as obsolete branded or recalled products properly destroyed, including:

  • Bank statements
  • Payroll documents
  • Personnel records
  • Old tax returns
  • Credit card bills and bank statements
  • Utility bills
  • Receipts
  • Travel documents
  • Hard drives
  • Thumb drives
  • Backup tapes
  • Optical media (CDs/DVDs/Blu-rays)
  • Old and obsolete uniforms and ID badges
  • Last year’s catalogs

Leaving any of these items sitting around increases the potential of a security breach, so don’t just throw them out—have them permanently destroyed by a reputable shredding company.

Increased concern about climate change, environmental issues, and sustainability

Taking control of where all your recyclables go starts with you. As you begin to declutter, you can be confident that by partnering with a reputable shredding company, you can be sure that your paper, electronics, and products are all recycled properly after destruction. Don’t leave anything to chance—take control of your footprint on this earth and start 2022 on a positive note!
