Phoenix Recycling and its subsidiary Dataloc have been providing Records Management, Document Destruction, Imaging and Recycling services for over 26 years in Winnipeg. There has been tremendous change in the Records Management Industry over the last 5 years.  Intense consolidation, digitization, and the expansion of privacy legislation has remade the industry and poses new challenges to consumers of records management services.
Join us as Patti and Kristjan Backman conduct a plant tour.  You will have the opportunity to see state of the art shredding plant and perhaps toss something fun into the shredder.

Following the tour will be refreshments and a presentation on the changes in the industry and what lies ahead.
