Does your business have a designated area where they place documents that need to be destroyed? It’s important that everyone in your office knows where these areas are located. Some people deal with extremely sensitive information on a daily basis- thus needing document destruction. If you don’t have a shred bin in your office, here are some reasons why it’s important for you to invest in one. 


Most companies have a set procedure for sensitive documents. Whether it be destroying them on the spot or having a designated area to place them, shred bins can benefit your business when it comes to security. A shred bin gives you a place to directly store any documents that you don’t want easily available to anyone. Most importantly, a shred bin is made with tough materials- making it difficult to get into. Shred bins also come with an area to place a lock so that people can’t go and open it whenever they please. If this is something that your business has, it’s important to have a designated person to keep the key to the lock so that not everyone can access inside of the bin.
