-Shred-it’s Best-In-Class Document Destruction Program Provides OfficeMax Customers with Peace of Mind-
Naperville, Ill. OfficeMax®, a leading provider of office supplies and services, and Shred-it, a world-leading information security company, today announced a joint partnership to provide a new, convenient secure document destruction service to consumers and small businesses alike. Beginning in January, OfficeMax will offer the Shred-it document destruction program at nearly all of the company’s more than 1,000 stores nationwide as part of its OfficeMax ImPress® suite of in-store print and document services.
Under the new program, OfficeMax customers will be able to bring unneeded confidential documents for secure destruction to any OfficeMax ImPress counter nationwide. Shred-it will provide on-site locked security consoles that will safely store the materials to ensure privacy. Documents will be stored there securely until destroyed on-site at the OfficeMax location by a Shred-it mobile shredding vehicle, following a tight security process. Once the materials have been destroyed, the OfficeMax location will keep a Certificate of Destruction on file for three years that will be available to customers upon request.
“We are excited to enter into a partnership with Shred-it because the demand for secure document shredding services is growing. Shred-it offers the best solution and is considered the gold standard in the industry,” said Ryan Vero, EVP and Chief Merchandising Officer for OfficeMax. “Now customers will be able to safely dispose their confidential materials because the Shred-it process prevents privacy leaks during destruction and ensures peace of mind.”
“Shred-it is delighted about the new strategic partnership with OfficeMax,” says Mike Skidmore, Chief Security Officer at Shred-it. “There is a growing need for secure document destruction as a preventative measure against identity theft and privacy breaches, and this partnership will allow everyday consumers to use Shred-it’s secure document destruction services at OfficeMax’s convenient locations across the country.”
OfficeMax and Shred-it conducted a 10-month pilot of the document destruction program in select OfficeMax retail locations. Pricing for the new service is determined by weight of the materials to be shredded: $.59 per pound for up to five pounds, $.49 per pound for six to ten pounds, and $.39 per pound for 11 pounds and above.
