With tightening legal requirements, escalating concerns about identity theft and reputations at stake, there is an increased awareness of and demand for the need to permanently destroy sensitive material. Organisations therefore need to know that their documents will be confidentially destroyed within agreed timeframes to the required standards.
We have worked with confidential data for over 40 years to provide our clients with a reliable, secure and environmentally-friendly service. Our services are trusted by a number of organisations, including the legal profession, local and central government and the NHS. Confidential destruction is achieved in-house using a dual industrial shredder and baler system, which is capable of shredding up to four tonnes of confidential waste per hour.
Our shredding process consists of five steps. Firstly, our trained staff assess the most secure, effective and cost-effective way to collect your confidential waste. Our DBS-checked, referenced and uniformed staff then securely collect your documents in GPS tracked, alarmed vehicles.
Next, your items are delivered to one of our sites where they are scanned into the shredding bay, quality checked and loaded into the shredding area. The industrial shredder cross cuts paper to the relevant standards, and this waste is then mixed and baled. The bales are then recycled.
