Off-Site Document Shredding Services to Fit Your Needs

We understand that each business is unique and therefore have different shredding frequency requirements. That’s why we offer one-time shredding services as well as recurring shredding services.

One-Time Shredding Services

Our one-time secure document shredding service allows you to shred all of your confidential documents in bulk as needed.

The first step in this service is to call us at (855) 229-2783 to schedule your shredding service. On your scheduled shred day, one of our uniformed drivers will arrive at your location wearing their ID badge so you know they are one of our certified MWA team members.

Our driver will empty your discarded documents into lockable shred collection containers and transport them to our secure shredding plant. Your documents are then shredded into small, unreconstructible pieces. If you prefer, we will drop off these locking containers in advance of your purge so you can keep your documents secure until pickup time.

When shredding is complete, you will receive a Certificate of Destruction as your documentation of the chain of custody. We then recycle all shredded paper.

Recurring Shredding Services

Many businesses don’t have a secure system for disposing of sensitive documents on an ongoing basis. We eliminate this concern for our customers by providing free, locking shred collection containers to businesses that participate in our recurring shredding service.

With recurring shredding, you choose the frequency of shredding days that fit your needs and we provide you with the quantity and type of shred collection containers you need.

On your scheduled shred days, one of our drivers, who always wear their uniform and ID badge so you know they are one of our certified MWA team members, will come to your location to pick up and transport your discarded documents in locked security containers to our secure shredding plant.

Once shredding is complete, you will receive a Certificate of Destruction for your proof that the chain of custody is complete.

Why Choose MWA For Your Secure Document Shredding?

Many businesses assume that shredding documents in-house is sufficient. Unfortunately, this approach leaves room for sensitive data falling into the wrong hands and does not provide you with proof of your compliance with data privacy laws.

This means that when you use MWA as your document shredding company, you’re guaranteed to receive the most secure, convenient, professional shredding services in Tennessee, Southwest Virginia, North Carolina and Georgia.

We follow strict criteria to protect your information, including:

  • Cross-cut shredding your documents for ultimate security.
  • Shredding documents from multiple sources at once so paper shreds are randomly mixed.
  • Pre-employment criminal background checks on all employees.
  • Pre-employment and random drug screening for all employees.
  • Certified proof that shredded output is unreadable.
  • Drivers and helpers wear a company uniform and display photo ID badges.
  • Owners and officers have a third-party background check on file.
