As for off-site shredders - our Provincial government used a contracted
company to shred high school achievement examinations.  An employee of the
shredding company "liberated" a couple of exams and sold them to students.
If something is important enough that it should be shredded, do it
onsite--do it right.
If you want to be secure, you shred locally, preferably with a crosscut shredder, then burn locally, or have a pulping service come out. They turn the shreds into basically paper mache.

As to external services, minimize, scrutinize, and change routines unexpectedly.
