Document shredding is not an option but a need for the small business owner working out of a residence. All businesses now store sensitive information – whether their own or their clients’ details. There are files everywhere. Even more so, when you work from your residence, there are bills, documents and banking information lying around. You may not think twice before tearing a bill in two and throwing the pieces of paper into the trash. Or you might be careful and use a shredding device to destroy all papers with your personal information and carefully trash it all. You might be even extra careful and throw all destroyed paper and documents in separate trash cans so that they can never be pieced back together.
But the truth is even with such careful destruction on your part, fraudsters manage to find personal information of people from trash and dumpsters and use it to steal identities and commit fraud. Let ShredGreen help you meet Florida and Federal legal requirements by professionally shredding and recycling your documents. We will come to your residence and shred the documents into undecipherable strips. And there is NO NEED to remove paperclips or staples!

The Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act has set up regulations to prevent and punish acts of identity theft and consumer fraud. It mandates that companies or people who collect personal information of consumers for business purpose have to take adequate measures to protect them from theft and take responsibility of efficient disposal. If a customer’s personal information like social security number, driver’s license number, phone and email details which are collected by legal services providers like licensing agencies, loan processing firms, lawyers firms, is misused by a third party it can result in strong penalties. Secure destruction regulations are applicable to all business firms which collect personal information for business purposes from clients during their business transaction.
