What to Shred in Houston

Once you allow information to leave your possession - in the trash or in the hands of a Houston recycling company - you've lost control. You have put yourself and your company at risk. Any kind of record containing personal information about your employees or your business could be used to compromise your organization's security. 

In fact, under various Texas and federal privacy laws, if your personnel files or other types of records are disclosed to outside parties, even by accident, it could be grounds for a lawsuit.
