DymonShred - Document Shredding

A Simple, Convenient Process

We've made it incredibly easy to get your files and private paperwork shredded. Once you drive in, we assess your shred volume, you pay right there at our convenient, indoor shred station, and you're done! You can be in and out in mere minutes.

DymonShred makes the secure shredding and destruction of your personal or business paperwork and confidential files extremely easy. Utilizing one of our drop-off shredding locations you can easily drive-in and drive-out in minutes knowing your confidential documents are securely destroyed. Here's how it works:

Box up the confidential records and files you want shredded. If you don't have boxes, put them in bags. Just make sure they are protected when you move from your office or home to your vehicle.

Drive to one of our our storage facilities, and you'll find our drop-off shred stations conveniently located in the drive-in bays. Our drop-off hours are designed to make it easy for you. We're open 8 a.m. until 9 p.m. Monday through Friday and 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.

Drive up to one of the large drive-in doors at the location of your choosing. Wait for the door to open, allowing you to drive into the secure, weather-protected bay.

Once inside, drive up to the well-marked "DymonShred Centre" and see a Dymon team member at our front desk for help.

A Dymon team member will assist you and confirm with you how much paper you have to shred. This will include either assessing the size and number of boxes or using a convenient measuring system for loose paperwork in bags.

For Businesses, It's the Law

While the reasons for shredding may seem self-evident, many people including executives, business owners, employees and private individuals do not accurately understand the critical nature and importance of shredding documents and destroying data held on media.

Canadian law contains legislation entitled the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA). This law protects personal information in the hands of private sector organizations and provides guidelines and directives for the collection, use and disclosure of information created, obtained or sourced in the course of their ongoing commercial activity.

PIPEDA outlines privacy principles developed by the Canadian Standards Association and is governed by the Privacy Commissioner of Canada and the Federal Court.

Related to Destruction and Shredding, PIPEDA states:

"Personal information that is no longer required to fulfill the identified purposes should be destroyed, erased or made anonymous. Organizations shall develop guidelines and implement procedures to govern the destruction of personal information."

PIPEDA Principle 4.5.3

"Care shall be used in the disposal or destruction of personal information, to prevent unauthorized parties from gaining access to the information."

For Most, It Should Be Common Sense

Based on the above information, it is clear that information destruction is a legal requirement. So when you discard, you must also destroy.

But more than that, certain types of records must be kept for a specific period of time for auditing, legal and compliance purposes based on mandated retention schedules. However, few people understand that retaining those records beyond their retention period can prove to be a legal and logistical nightmare. That's why it's a best practice to shred documents that have reached the end of their lifecycle and not wait any longer.

It Saves Time and Money

A shredding method and process must be secure enough to preserve the privacy and confidentiality of your information, yet shouldn't be a drain on your internal resources and time. Employing internal staff to shred using simple desk-side office shredders is a huge waste of time and money. There is no economic viability in shredding internally, not to mention that doing so takes time away from revenue-generating projects.

Do You Want Staff to See Information While Shredding?

In an attempt to save money, some companies have staff shred documents internally, potentially exposing them to information they should not be privy to. Do you really want the janitor to be aware of the salaries of the executives? While you would emphatically answer "NO" to that question, failure to employ an outsourced shred service creates this risk every day. Hand-feeding single documents at a slow rate of speed makes perusal of the documents being shredded a significant temptation.

There is a better way. Outsourcing your shredding needs provides the basis for a thorough and formal document destruction program.
