As we enjoy the last few days of summer in Alaska, as school is back in session, most people are getting back in the office swing of things. This is an ideal time to schedule a fall office clean with Alaska Document Shredding Services, to de-clutter and reorganize. Whether it’s your home office or your business space a few tips to get you going are below:
Organize Paper Files – Go through the paper documents that could be piling up on your desk or in the file room. Ensure that confidential information is filed and paperwork that is no longer needed is shredded and recycled. Utilizing a locking bin, or a shred bag provided by Shred Alaska is an idea way to store your shredding documents until you are ready to purge them.
Check Stored File Boxes – Don’t let those banker boxes in the corner of your office continue to take up unnecessary space. Determine if they are still required for storage, and if not request a one-time purge service. If they are still required to store, organize boxes according to date and clearly mark the date of destruction on each box. This will make for a more seamless fall office clean out next year.
Destroy Old Mail – As tempting as it is to just toss that junk mail in the trash, don’t! Throw it in the shred bin or bag and save it for complete destruction. You may be saving a minimal amount of time, but you are doing so at great risk to your companies identity and confidential information.
Old Computers and Equipment – Utilizing a recycling service for your old computer equipment is a great idea. However, pull out the hard drive before sending it on it’s way. Shred Alaska can provide you with documented hard drive destruction.
De-Clutter – The simple task of de-cluttering and organizing your work space helps to identify what needs to stay and what can go. This can also help you in maintaining your companies clean desk policy.
