Onsite shredding

Our service

Our 12 shredding centres are sited the length and breadth of the country so that we can achieve large-scale efficiencies alongside intimate local knowledge. All the elements of the service we offer you are designed to create a smooth, seamless and risk-free process for disposing of your confidential data and materials at the end of their useful life.

Our security

Handling confidential data and materials is what we do, every day, and our reputation is staked on it. We take the security of your confidential data very seriously because we know that your reputation can be staked on it, too.

We’ve made it our business to be GDPR and DPA 2018-compliant – and we have insights to pass on for closing any gaps in your data handling processes.  

We are BS EN15713 shredding standard accredited, including BS7858 employee vetting and training and have worked hard to attain the ISO 9001, 14001 and 27001 accreditations.

All our secure collection operatives are vetted and tracked for good driving practice. On-board telematics and GPS enable fleet control to pinpoint where any vehicle is at any time and each vehicle has to pass through our entry security cameras and system at every shredding centre. 

We can supply a range of lockable bins and secure consoles for your office so that there’s no excuse for confidential items to be left lying around or visible in an unsecured bin. These bins are then unlocked by our secure collection operatives and either emptied directly on to the blades of a mobile shredder on site or into the collection truck for transportation to our secure destruction centre off-site.

On-site shredding

For enhanced peace of mind, you can watch your confidential data tip from bin to blade in one of our mobile shredding vehicles parked in a designated spot at your place.

Off-site shredding

The most cost effective option for larger, or regular collections, you receive the same friendly, unobtrusive service and guaranteed levels of security from your office to our shredding centre.

A more efficient, greener fleet

Our FORS and Masternaut-accredited fleet uses management software that plots the quickest routes through traffic, the most effective green routes for less stop/start and idling – and all with the aim of collecting from your office on time, every time.
