About Us

Shred On Site Melbourne and Shred On Site Geelong – we shred your confidential documents ON SITE.

Shred On Site Melbourne and Shred On Site Geelong is locally owned and operated, and started in Melbourne in 2014. We began after a number of incidents that highlighted the ever increasing danger of identity theft and the ease with which it can occur – and also coincided with the enactment of the Federal Government’s Privacy Amendment (Enhancement Privacy Protection) Act 2012 which commenced on the 12th March 2014. We are now Victoria’s longest running, most experienced and largest ON SITE document shredding company. Mobile Shredding with Shred On Site

The owners have a wide range of business experience but a number of personal experiences and frustration with existing methods of confidential document destruction methods, in particular, lead to the establishment of Shred On Site.

AAA Certification

Shred On Site is a member of the National Association of Information Destruction – Australia and New Zealand chapter (NAID-ANZ). We are one of just a few companies in Victoria that is NAID AAA Certified – this means our processes, procedures and training of team members follow world’s best practice.

Personal Identity Theft

A family member had their drivers licence and credit card details stolen through the carelessness and lack of procedures at a company where they were a customer. The perpetrators went on a six month spending spree that saw multiple credit cards used and thousands of dollars of goods bought all around Melbourne and online.

Identity Theft Numbers are Growing in Australia

The ABS (2012) estimated that a total of 1.2 million Australians in 2010-11 were victims of personal fraud. This equates to a national victimisation rate for personal fraud of 6.7% of the population aged 15 years and over. This is an increase from the 806,000 victims of personal fraud in 2007 (5.0%). Australians lost $1.4 billion in 2010-11 due to personal fraud.

Office Cleanout

It was time for the office cleanout. There were hundreds of client files and business documents (i.e. tax returns, bank statements, files, business plans, personnel files) held in storage. One option was to use a small office shredder but it would have taken forever to remove all the staples, bulldog clips, plastic sleeves and take all the paper out of the binders.

General recycling was out of the question after seeing a bin of business documents knocked over at the local shopping strip and bank statements and other business information blowing down the street.

Research showed that in countries like the USA, Canada, the UK and many parts of Europe you could get shredding done on-site. Unfortunately in Melbourne only off-site shredding services were available.

A service provider was chosen only to discover on the day of pickup that all the files would be taken to a shed and be sorted by hand into different grades of paper and other products (i.e. plastic, metal and cardboard), THEN shredded and recycled. It took a leap of faith but it was difficult not to have that nagging feeling of doubt as the compactor garbage truck drove off with all the confidential documents on board. When would they be shredded? How would you know when/if they had been shredded?

Compliant Document Destruction

The new Federal Government’s Privacy Amendment (Enhancement Privacy Protection) Act 2012 was enacted on the 12 March 2014. Australian businesses now need to know about the Act and how it applies to their industry and business type.

In particular, businesses need to comply with Australian Privacy Principle 11 (APP11); businesses need to take reasonable steps to destroy or de-identify personal information if it is no longer needed for the purpose for which it was collected. Directors/owners and senior managers of companies are responsible for what happens to private information from creation to destruction – even if destruction occurs somewhere AFTER it has left the business premises.

Shredding all confidential documents on site is the safest and most secure way to comply with this part of the Act.

Mobile Document Destruction

Based on these experiences and seeing the need to protect personal and business information, Shred On Site was established to service the Victorian market.Shredding On Site with Shred On Site

As a retired Marriage Celebrant, I had much personal information in relation to hundreds of former clients, which needed to be securely disposed destroyed. I didn't have enough to justify a truck coming to my house, so I took the documents to the Shred On Site office and met very helpful Joshua who organised their destruction. I definitely recommend this company, and will use their services again in the future.
Great service! Shred on Site made the task of disposing of old files and paperwork super easy. I received a confirmation email with the time the driver would arrive and he arrived exactly on time Friendly and efficient service, highly recommend.
I could not recommend this service more highly! 8 years of tax returns, personal medical docs was weighing us down. Shred On Site were incredibly accommodating on dates and times and literally provide service at your front door. The price point was excellent also. Was like a Marie Kondo 'spark joy' moment. Thanks so much, Lisa & Steve
We were very happy with the Shred on Site Service. We had several boxes of material to be shredded. Mike arrived on time and cheerfully tipped everything in to a Shred on Site Bin and promptly wheeled it to his truck. The material was being shredded as Mike filled out his invoice and the job was paid for. Very Efficient service, I would without any hesitation use their service again. Thanks Mike for an excellent, positive experience.
Excellent service. Arrived on time. No need to sort paper , plastic or ring binders. All shredded while you watch. Great way to get rid of those old personal files
Service is exactly as advertised. Easy connection to set up an appointment. Appointment made next day with text reminder and call on approach - very helpful in getting boxes ready for destruction. Thought I only had 2 boxes - after the team members arrived, I realised I had 5 which was no problem for them to accomodate. Out of date but sensitive documentation which they handled and shredded appropriately. Cost was very reasonable, even with the unplanned extras. Service - both from the admin office and team members who arrived - was excellent. I will be using them again for future document shredding and their expanded service offering covering electronic waste, knowing that it will be handled sensitively and efficiently.

I have used this company both business and personal shredding. All times customer service was excellent and they were oh so helpful. I found the pricing reasonable and have been more than very satisfied with their procedures. Cannot recommend them highly enough.
come right to where the paperwork was boxed. destruction in front of me. Very quick and no mess at all. polite and professional
Great service, we used to use this company for our business shredding when we lived in Melbourne. We now live in a coastal town but were able to meet the truck on it's mobile rounds and have our shredding down in about 5 minutes! Extremely convenient, friendly and easy to organise.
This was so easy to arrange and communication with company was spot on. Everything was as promised. It was cheaper as a one off to take our documents to a site where they had a regular commitment. A quick call to say they would be there in 20 mins. and it was all done. Wouldn’t hesitate to use again or recommend.
