Paper and file shredders are the perfect solutions to prevent identity or information theft. Terrible losses can result from the theft of valuable information. This is the reason why government organizations, private individuals and businesses opt to use paper shredders to destroy sensitive and confidential information.

Privacy experts strongly recommend the shredding of credit cards, bills, bank account statements and other documents that could be used illegally. According to the Supreme Court of the United States' decision in California v. Greenwood, the Fourth Amendment permits a warrantless search and seizure of trash left for collection outside a house or place of businesses. This decision has made paper shredders all the more popular in the U.S.

Types Of Shredders
Paper shredders are available in a variety of sizes and designs. The shredders that are used by commercial shredding services are built into shredding trucks. The shredding machines are classified according to the shape and size of the waste that is produced.

Cross Cut Shredder: It uses two contra-rotating drums to cut rectangular or parallelogram shaped shreds.

Strip-Cut Shredder: There are rotating knives that cut narrow strips. These strips are as long as the original sheet of paper. It is not very secure because a determined investigator can reassemble the strips. This shredder also makes a lot of waste.

Particle-Cut Shredder: It creates circular, tiny pieces.

Hammer-Mill: This pounds the paper through a screen.

Disintegrator And Granulator: It repeatedly cuts the paper, until it is very small.

Grinder: It has a rotating shaft along with sharp cutting blades that does the grinding of the paper until it becomes small.

Pierce And Tear: It has rotating blades that pierce the paper and then tear it apart.

There are alternative shredders that apply chemical decomposition, burning or composting, for effective disposal of the shreds.

The Mobile Shredding Truck
Documentation is the backbone of any business. Most people do not discard documents because they feel that they might need to access the information in future. This leads to the piling up of files and documents that occupy valuable office space or simply adds to the clutter in a basement. Other reason for not disposing of documents is security. No one wants important documents to fall into the wrong hands and this is where mobile shredding services come in.

Companies providing mobile shredding services operate vehicles fitted with a shredding plant. Mobile shredding involves a box truck that has an industrial sized paper shredder on the front section of the box truck. There are two sections in the box. The payload area as a storage space for the shredded material and the shredding equipment area. These trucks can shred up to 5,000 lbs of paper per hour. These shredding trucks can store shredded papers from 6,000 to 15,000 pounds.

The material for shredding usually includes office documents, but due to the increase in security concerns, customers can even request the shredding of DVDs, CDs, credit cards, hard drives and uniforms, among many other things. These trucks come on-site and complete the job in the presence of executives. The documents are then shredded so well that they change beyond identification. These services are safe, secure and comply with all privacy laws.

Features Of A Mobile Shredding Service
A reasonable price and sturdy shredding equipment are the two features you need to identify when purchasing a mobile shredding service. The equipment should offer the required speed because most of the service providers charge by the minute. The latest shredding service providers also recycle the shredded paper, keeping environment conservation in mind. Services like document storage & distribution, certification, imaging and private document destruction are also offered. They even provide a 'Certificate of Destruction', after the task is accomplished.

Mobile shredding services are not only necessary, but convenient as well. The service will come to you home or office at a specified time and carry out safe, secure document destruction.
