Mobile Shredding Association responds to Stericycle’s plan to discontinue on-site shredding

Stericycle acquired Shred-it in late 2015. Since then, the company has had the goal of converting its customers to off-site shredding. 

“The move to convert clients to off-site shredding increases the complexity in managing document chain of custody, effectively removes client’s option to witness destruction and creates a delay between receiving of client materials and the destruction of those materials, which will certainly not take place immediately and may not take place within an appropriate amount of time.”
