Product Destruction: Destroy Sensitive Materials

There are a number of occasions when your business may be sitting on a large pile of inventory. From actual products, raw materials and branded packaging, to marketing props, uniforms, and stationery items, your warehouses or corporate storage spaces may be crammed with a variety of items. If these items are redundant, it is critical that you send them to a professional product destruction facility for secure disposal. 

The experts at Crown Shredding throw light on why this is important for your business, and how to go about it.

Why Consider Product Destruction?

What has led to your piled up stack of products? Is it a product recall, a batch of expired stock, excess production with mismatched demand, a legal action-led inability to sell, or change in manufacturing standards during production? No matter why the inventory accumulated, even if it is obsolete to you, it may be useful to someone else who has ulterior motives. For example:

  • If you simply dump your products or marketing materials into the garbage, miscreants could get hold of your flawed or outdated products and try to sell them in the grey market. They could also try to use your branded labels or packaging material for other third-party products, which could in turn ruin your brand and reputation.
  • Similarly, sending your old corporate uniforms to a thrift store may be a noble thought. However, if the persons who acquire this clothing deliberately misrepresent themselves as your employees, your corporate identity and reputation will be at stake. There have been instances where disgruntled employees have managed to access such branded uniforms, while participating in a crime, or other shenanigans that potentially threaten your business.  

Opting for a systematic and secure disposal of your obsolete products will allow you to:

  • Protect your business from potential criminal activities, and expensive legal troubles that could cause a significant corporate crisis.
  • Prevent thefts or misuse of your branded, copyrighted, trademarked or other confidential or sensitive items that could sully your reputation, or lead to huge losses.
  • Free up valuable real estate in your storage units or warehouses.
