Why Shred?

Every household or business gathers confidential information.  If that information is not secure, the results could be devastating.  Customer lists, confidential client information, credit card and sales receipts, personnel and payroll records all need to be kept secure.  Taking proper steps and protocols to make sure this information is protected is not only every business owners responsibility, it is a legal obligation.

At National Archives, Inc. we specialize in secure shredding and confidential destruction of your documents.

Our Off-Site Document Shredding Service on Long Island NY provides a less expensive alternative to on-site but, with the same high degree of document security. National Archives, Inc. will pick-up your paper documents and destroy them at our secure shredding facility located in Garden City NY on Long Island. Our paper shredding service remains strictly confidential and is handled by fully insured employees. A certificate of destruction is issued after your material is destroyed and the shredded paper recycled. Bulk shredding service using high speed, high capacity shredders enable us to shred at a lower cost than is possible with a mobile shredder or on-site shredder. The savings in our costs results in a lower price to our customer for shredding documents.

Secure Shredding Bin & Console Rotation Service

Sure, we’ll pickup anything in a box, but we recommend you get set up with our weekly or monthly shredding console service (click here for more info). Our consoles stand approx 36″ tall and blend in with office attire to create a clean and secure working environment.
