Ranger Shredding is AAA certified by the National Association for Information Destruction (NAID). The NAID AAA Certification Program is a voluntary program for NAID member companies providing information destruction services. Through the program, NAID members will be audited for mobile and/or plant-based operations in paper or printed media, micromedia, computer hard drive destruction, and/or computer hard drive sanitization. Under this program, the certification application and associated fees cover only individual locations. If a NAID member operates in multiple locations, each location must pass the audit to be certified. NAID members who receive certification must specify the location certified in company literature when referencing the NAID certification program.
NAID is the standards-setting body for the information destruction industry. NAID AAA Certification verifies the qualifications of certified information destruction providers through a comprehensive scheduled and unannounced audit program. This rigorous process supports the needs of organizations around the world by helping them meet numerous laws and regulations requiring protection of confidential customer information.
The HIPAA Privacy Rule requires that covered entities apply appropriate administrative, technical, and physical safeguards to protect the privacy of protected health information (PHI), in any form. Thus, covered entities are not permitted to simply abandon PHI or dispose of it in dumpsters or other containers that are accessible by the public or other unauthorized persons. In general, examples of proper disposal methods for PHI in paper records may include but are not limited to shredding, burning, pulping, or pulverizing the records so that PHI is rendered essentially unreadable, indecipherable, and otherwise cannot be reconstructed.

Federal and state regulations require the secure destruction of certain kinds of documents, ranging from customers’ Social Security numbers to medical records and other industry-specific data. Any documents that your business or its customers consider confidential cannot pass through your existing recycling program.

With its on-site shredding truck, Ranger Shredding will destroy all your materials on-site and provide you with a Document of Destruction before we leave. The documents are shredded beyond reconstruction. Shredded materials then go to a recycling plant, are baled and then shipped to a pulping mill for recycling.
