Why Shred? Answer: For compliance and security.

data, which could identify a living individual is a legal requirement. Failure to comply is a criminal offence.
What sort of documents should be shredded?
The obvious items include bank statements and legal contracts. But there are so many additional items such as
invoices, employee documents, job applications, receipts, expense forms, insurance documents, quotations etc etc.
In every businesses confidential materials are generated every working day. If such information were to get
into the wrong hands then there could be a sizable security risk not to mention legal consequences.
Of course a company may need to retain certain documents for a
given period of time but once this expires it is considered to be good practice to securely shred/destoy and
recycle such documents. This not only gives you 'peace of mind' but also frees up some vital storage space.
