Preparing for a shred event.
Who should go through the records?
Anyone who puts information on paper. It’s always a good idea to go through your records at least once a year and especially at the end of a fiscal year or calendar year. If you do not have a secure destruction container in your office, it would be a great idea to get one so that you can get rid of sensitive information on an ongoing basis. ADS has shred bins of all sizes to suit your individual needs!
Where are the records going to be stored?
Once you determine what records will need to be stored, you have to figure out where you are going to store them. Storing records onsite can be costly, not to mention take up a lot of room. ADS can save you money and time with our records management programs. Ask us how today!
What records should you be cleaning out?
This will vary for different industries based on the types of records you have – medical records, tax records, purchase orders, corporate records, personnel/HR files, accounts receivable/payable, contracts, etc.
When can the records be destroyed?
Each state has its own requirements for records retention. ADS can design a records retention program to fit your needs that is compliant with state laws and regulations.
