As we approach the end of another year, now is a good time to evaluate your document destruction policy and consider your end-of-year shredding strategy. This is an important year-end task that can help protect your home, remove fire hazards, and prevent identity theft or fraud. While it may seem daunting, we’re here to help make the process as smooth as possible. Follow our tips below to get started.
One of the first things to consider when it comes to document shredding is how long to keep documents before destroying them. This can vary depending on the type of document, but in general, most documents can be shredded after they’re no longer needed for business or tax purposes. For example, receipts and bank statements can typically be shredded after one year, while tax returns should be kept for at least three years. Knowing how long to keep documents will help you make decisions about what needs to be shredded and when.
Purge Your Papers:
Once you’ve determined how long to keep documents, it’s time to start purging your papers. This is where a little organization can go a long way. We recommend starting with a large, empty box or bin and going through each room of your house, collecting any documents that need to be shredded. Once you have everything in one place, sort the documents into piles by type or shred date. This will make it easier to know what needs to be shredded first and will help you keep track of what’s been shredded.
Protect Your Information:
Another important consideration when it comes to document shredding is protecting your personal information. This includes any sensitive documents that contain your name, address, Social Security number, or financial information. These documents should be shredded as soon as possible to prevent identity theft or fraud. In addition, be sure to shred any old bills, credit card statements, or other financial documents that you no longer need.
