In properly managing your records, it's important to consider a file's lifecycle.
At the end of your record's storage life, let InfoStor provide you with confidential
destruction of these obsolete records. Upon your written notification, we verify
the items to be destroyed, and then process the files for destruction using
environmentally safe procedures. InfoStor offers certified destruction services for
your magnetic and micrographic media as well.
- Levels of confidentiality meet or exceed law requirements
- Auditable, error-free procedures
- On-site containers available with locks so that carriers cannot open them
- Environmentally-friendly methods used for destruction
- Certificates of Destruction issued to you
InfoStor can also help you classify and determine how long to store your documents
according corporate policies, legal or tax requirements, or ISO 9000 standards.
Once a client initiates a destruction request, there are multiple levels of checks,
reports and approvals that go into effect. Any file discrepancies are reconciled before
any record is actually destroyed. We employ two separate quality control teams to ensure
error-free processing. Finally, a record of your destroyed material will remain in the
InfoStor database for at least one year after destruction.
InfoStor can shred paper, microfilm, microfiche, x-rays, computer disks and data tapes.
Additionally, InfoStor can destroy items directly from your offices by providing locking
containers for both paper and non-paper media prior to be picked-up at your request. The
bins come in two convenient sizes: Large, 64-gallon, molded plastic containers or
convenient wooden office consoles that are smaller and fit better with office décor.
Both have a paper/media slot and a secure, metal locking mechanism on the lid that can
only be opened by InfoStor personnel utilizing our key. Click here to learn more about this convenient option.
In our ongoing effort to be environmentally aware, InfoStor recycles all records
scheduled for destruction. The difference is only in the final point of our destruction
process. Instead of shredding, the records are pulped. The paper is broken down to
its finest grain in a water-based solution, with all non-paper components filtered
out. This pulp-liquid can then be used to make paper products and re-circulated into
commercial use. The need for fresh pulp from cut trees is reduced. In no way is the
integrity and confidentiality of your records compromised.
We continue to offer traditional shredding services for clients who expressly request this method.
