document shredding containers

A flexible choice of containers are available to suit your working environment. From small under the desk 60L containers to large 4 wheeled 660L containers all secured with a locking mechanism to keep your waste confidential. Our small 60L container and executive data console are both sack holding containers for purchase. To service these containers we simply visit your premises and collect the tied sacks for shredding. As an alternative we offer 140L, 240L and 660L containers where all documents are thrown loose into the secure container and when full, we exchange the container for an empty one. At no point do the documents leave the sack or container until the they are emptied into the shredder.

secure sacks & ties

For businesses that do not wish to purchase or lease containers, we can supply you with a box of confidential sacks with secure ties. The sacks are opaque and made of a heavy-duty polyurethane material which eliminates the ability to view documents through the sack or for the sack to be easily spit. When the sacks are full and securely tied collections can be arrange at a frequency that suits your business.
