AMS is NAID AAA Certified and follows the document destruction industry’s strictest standards. NAID, National Association for Information Destruction, is the professional body, recognized federally, to govern standards within the document destruction industry. AMS is a highly secured, plant-based records management and document destruction facility. We service many industries including but not limited to police and fire departments, village municipalities, school districts, hospitals, medical offices, banks, investment, accounting and law firms.
It is important to securely destroy any information that could be used to gain access to confidential information or financial information. The safest way to dispose of these items is to have them securely shredded or destroyed by experienced document management professionals.
AMS has been in the document destruction, archival x-ray film recycling, media destruction, film storage, records management, record storage and vaulting business, servicing hospitals and medical centers nationwide for over 35 years. Our document shredding service helps keep your facility compliant with all of the HIPAA/HITECH Act rules and regulations along with the Red Flag rules for identity theft.
Our trained professionals pick up secured documents from your office, warehouse, or storage facility. Documents can be picked up in storage boxes, 95 gallon locked totes or consoles. The locked totes/consoles are scanned for security and tracking purposes, the work order is signed by an authorized employee at your facility and you are provided a certificate of destruction. Documents are then transported in our GPS monitored trucks and brought to our highly secured facility to be destroyed within 24 to 72 hours unless otherwise specified.
Our paper shredding recycling program highlights the reuse of shredded paper. All confidential information is shredded using our Allegheny 1000- Series Shredder and then baled for secure transportation to the paper mill. From that point upon reaching the paper mill, the shredded material is pulped and turned into new paper products. Every piece of paper that can be reused is material that will not require logging or storage in a landfill. According to the EPA, by recycling 1 ton of paper, we save: 17 trees, 7,000 gallons of water, 463 gallons of oil, 3 cubic yards of landfill space, and enough energy to heat an average home for 6 months.
