I have always appreciated Shred South’s service. John’s extraordinary service was above and beyond the call of duty.
Thank you so much for the shredding event that you did in Mooresville for our benefit. We really appreciate the generosity and the concern for our community!
We truly appreciate the service your staff provides…always professional, always courteous, and always patient with us! We can now avoid the cost of shredders, the mess of shredders, the noise of shredders, and the biggest expense of all…the manpower hours involved in shredding…why didn’t we go with your company years ago!
Shred-South has been a wonderful company for us to deal with. We trust that they dispose of our confidential records responsibly. Thank you, Shred South, for taking the worry out of protecting our confidential records. Your service is invaluable.

"Dumpster diving" is a real threat. Reporters, investigators and criminals alike use your trash for their benefit.
Most identity theft occurs by an employee or someone you know.

Destroying company and personal documents protects your company's image, finances and privacy.
Employees shouldn't be burdened with the time-consuming and high-responsibilty task of shredding valuable office documents. Besides, some shredders can't handle certain materials or the volumes necessary.
Shredding internally shows no record of compliance and due diligence.

Most identity theft occurs by an employee or someone you know. By destroying paper records you decrease the chance of those documents falling into the wrong hands, or being picked out of the trash. Shred it all...individually identifiable health information, financial information, Social Security Numbers or Taxpayer ID's, driver license, passport numbers, checking account numbers, savings account numbers, debit card/credit card numbers, PIN's, company confidential information, patents, trade secrets, etc.
Destroying company and personal documents protects your company's image, finances and privacy. This includes electronic documents. With computers replacing paper documents the protection is still needed. Hard drives and computer disk need to be destroyed in the same fashion as paper documents.
Off- Spec Products. Protect your company by destroying all proprietary materials that may contain a logo or other information that you would not want to get into a competitors hands or a secondary market. Shred South has assisted companies by shredding items such as jackets, uniforms and even tents that could have fallen into the wrong hands had they not been destroyed.
Since 2005, Shred South has been locally owned and operated by Steve Bograd with its base located in Statesville, NC. Unlike many other document destruction companies, Shred South is not part of a large, corporate franchise. Shred South was developed while researching various business ideas involving recycling. Steve learned that identity theft costs the U.S. economy approximately $56.4 billion annually. The majority of this identity theft involves paper. He also quickly learned that the burden of protecting consumer information was being put on the shoulders of businesses and corporations. The vision was clear –destroy confidential records on the front side and recycle the destroyed material on the back side. This is a solution for businesses needing to comply with the handling of consumer information and a way to conserve natural resources at the same time. From day one, “Shred South has prided itself on being large enough to provide the service you expect and small enough to provide the customer service you deserve.” Count on Shred South to customize service that will work for your company.
At Shred South we believe in giving back to our community. By partnering with various local charities and businesses, we are able to provide a series of free shred events throughout the year that enable citizens to safely and securely destroy their personal records. Most of these shred events are also fund raisers and allow citizens to make a donation to the charity recognized at the event. These events are limited to destroying paper media only - please no hazardous materials, batteries, spray or paint cans, flammables, combustibles, plastic bags or containers, photographs, random objects or trash. Paper clips, staples, rubber bands and hanging file folders are acceptable. Shred South thanks you for having records ready for our drivers to unload and for assisting us in running a shred event that is efficient for all!

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act: A federal law enacted to protect the privacy of individually identifiable health information. HIPAA lists shredding as a specific example of how to protect patient confidentiality. In February of 2009, the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) made an amendment to HIPAA which is know as HITECH (Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health). Fully effective in February 2010, it significantly increased data protection liabilities for all health-related organizations.
This law dictates that each financial institution must protect customers’ non-public information by establishing safeguards to “insure the security and confidentiality of customer records and information.
Requires virtually all businesses to destroy documents with consumer information prior to disposal. Acceptable methods of disposal include shredding, burning or pulverizing. It is no longer legal to simply throw consumer information in the trash. Enforced in December of 2010, FACTA was updated with the Red Flag Rule which is an anti-fraud regulation, requiring creditors and financial institutions with covered accounts to execute mechanisms to identify, detect, and respond to the warning signs, or ‘red flags,’ that could signify identity theft.
This North Carolina law mandates all businesses possessing personal information of a NC resident must take measures to protect that information even after its disposal. Measures cited in the law include shredding of papers beyond reconstruction. The law also requires the implementation and monitoring of written document protection and destruction policies.
