How to securely dispose of card printer ribbons

Make sure the data printed on your ID cards is SECURELY destroyed and not leaving your business at risk. 

Unlinke documents printed on paper, printing on plastic cards leaves an impression on the ribbon/film once a card is printed. This impression does not fade over time, leaving the data printed vunerable to anyone that accesses the ribbon. While usual paper prints can be destroyed in a commercial shredder, you cannot shred card ribbons and they cannot be recycled either. This leaves them becomes insecure when disposed of in the garbage.
