Document Destruction

 Let Us Meet Your Document Destruction Needs! 

Orange Grove Center provides meaningful jobs and training opportunities for people with disabilities. Document destruction has proven to be a wonderful niche for the people we serve.  Because of this, we take great pride in ensuring that we provide superb service and surpass industry standards at every turn.

Orange Grove is a member of the Tennessee Recycling Coalition.  We have been recycling for 22 years, and have now expanded our services to include secure document destruction.

We began our document destruction program, "Better Shred than Read," on October 1, 2009.  As Orange Grove Center's first federal NISH (an AbilityOne program for employment opportunities for persons with disabilities) contract, we began servicing six government offices from Chattanooga to Nashville. During our time of operation we have initiated customer service agreements with 122 other commercial companies.

No long term contracts to tie you into our services!  

Since beginning our document destruction we are annually audited by NISH, the federal government, Secure Document Alliance (SDA) and National Association of Information and Destruction (NAID). We have successfully completed these annual reviews from these agencies without any deficiencies. We are AAA certified from NAID. This is the elite certification that all document destruction professionals seek to obtain.

We service businesses from Chattanooga to Nashville, Knoxville and Muscle Shoals, AL. A list of customers can be seen by clicking on the link to the right. This program employs 10 individuals with disabilities and capable of employing much more. A goal for the upcoming year is to increase the number of businesses we service and that in return will help us employ more individuals, which is the ultimate goal.

A few of our capabilities are:

  • We are AAA certified through NAID
  • We have 24-hour security monitoring and video stored for 90 days
  • Web-based viewing of your documents being shredded
  • Paper is shredded to 5/16" (smaller than 5/8" industry standard)
  • Collection truck is equipped with GPS and camera
  • Provide locking containers at no additional charge for storage of your confidential documents
  • Certificate of Destruction emailed to your business after the destruction of all documents
  • Ensure all paper is pulped and recycled
  • All staff are required to pass state and federal background checks
  • All staff are trained on confidentiality and unauthorized access practices

Orange Grove Document Destruction takes pride in the fact that we surpass all industry standards for secure handling of confidential material as well ensuring that we provide superb customer service. As we are diligently seeking new businesses, we want to meet your company's document destruction needs.

If we cannot keep your business with our expertise and customer service, you should go to a competitor!

We also will shred for individuals who want to bring confidential paper to us. This can be done Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. - 3 p.m., for a charge of $5 per banker box.

You may ask, "Why should I choose Orange Grove over another company?"

The answer to this question is: We are SAFE, SECURE and DEPENDABLE!

This is not just a job to us or our individuals. We take great provide in the fact that we are securing your personal and confidential information.
