Information Security & Document Destruction for Government

We help government organizations keep confidential information confidential.

We are the industry standard for paper shredding, document destruction, and workplace privacy.

When the public entrusts you to provide government services, they expect you to do everything you can to protect the confidentiality of their private information. And as a government organization, there are legislation and regulations, practices, and procedures to help ensure the security of your information.

We can help take your privacy protection to the next level with world-class document and hard drive destruction services, and workplace privacy policies designed to help you and your colleagues keep private information out of the wrong hands.

Whether you’re a local municipality or a federal department, you’ll find Shred-it nearby.
