"The only company you will ever need."
When most people think of shredding, they automatically default to paper or document shredding. However, the amount of documents being transferred to digital formats takes the concept of shredding to entirely new levels. The technologies that we store critical information is now viewed as a priority for destruction, and as we attempt to transition to a paperless society, and with the addition of state and federal laws regarding protection of proprietary and customer/patient data, every business is being faced with the requirement for both document and digital shredding. To accomplish these tasks on a high security level, organizations are turning to licensed, professional data destruction companies for shredding services.
Breaches may be most known as those accomplished by hackers that break into a network, however, criminals will attempt any form of theft to access proprietary and personal information. One of the easiest methods of theft is insecure disposal and re-use of devices that have reached end-of-life and are replaced by newer technologies. Tech savvy criminals can buy these devices on eBay, look for them at nonprofits where they are donated, or buy them at bulk commercial locations where they are sold for parts. Patient, customer, client, and company information is held on these devices when an organization simply assumed that “deleting” would get rid of the data.
Organizations that use their own in-house strip shredders in an attempt to save money have found that criminals have accessed the strips and re-assembled them to expose sensitive company and personal information.

“The only company you will ever need.”
The era of shredding documents in-house and then adding them to recycling is long gone. Too many companies have found out the hard way that simple single strip shredding has allowed criminals to reassemble their critical and important organizational and client/patient information so that it can be sold on the dark web, causing company breaches, identity theft, and fines for abusing state and federal laws for data protection. There is a requirement for businesses to take document destruction seriously by hiring licensed and professional document destruction companies such as SHREDDRS, who will guarantee that all documents are shredded to the maximum so that the information can never be used.
Lockport is located on the east bank of the Des Plaines River just north of Joliet. The village of Lemont is about two miles to the north along the river.
Lockport is a city in Will County, Illinois, United States, located 30 miles southwest of Chicago. The city was incorporated in 1853. It is situated along the Illinois and Michigan Canal, and was the headquarters of the canal when the canal was operating. A section of the canal runs through Lockport, including the remains of the canal’s Lock No. 1 from which the town received its name. The canal right-of-way is now the Illinois and Michigan National Heritage Corridor. Because of proactive efforts dating back several years, the city of Lockport is one of the best-preserved canal sites in existence today.
