State agencies utilizing the State Use Program’s digital conversion and handling services may also opt to have old paper documents destroyed in a controlled manner known as Secure Document Destruction. Paper shreds can be physically destroyed and recycled according to client specifications or legal requirements.
The process begins with a needs assessment, and proper container sizes and locations are then determined for the customer at no charge. The containers are serviced monthly, weekly or bi-weekly by professionals, and all documents are kept under lock and human guard with bar code tracking during servicing. After arriving at a secure shredding facility, the documents are co-mingled prior to being finely shredded and baled so reconstruction is not possible. The bales are then submitted for pulverizing and recycling, and a Certificate of Destruction is issued.

**Minimum service charge waived for container service customers. This charge is required for an entity that has a separate Service Request Form, Payment Method and Certificate of Destruction; pertaining to each physical address of a Spending Unit.
