onsite shredding

Onsite shredding is a unique service that offers businesses a higher level of security when shredding confidential documents.

Sometimes handing over our waste to a licensed confidential waste contractor does not give you complete peace of mind, but your business obligations force your hand. For complete peace of mind we can provide your with an on-site shredding service that is tailored to suit individual requirements. As with the rest of our confidential services, our on-site service is carried out by our very own CRB checked operatives and confidential waste is kept within secure lockable containers.

To help with your environmental impact, we send all shredded paper documents and computer equipment for recycling. On the rare accasion that the waste type cannot be recycled, it is our policy to divert the waste from landfill and send it to a recovery facility that produces energy-from-waste.

Noise levels are also kept to a minimum, due to the special lining of the vehicle which minimisies any disruption to your business whilst the shredding process is being carried out.
