Wherever you are, we are.

Here’s what we offer.

· On-site services offer you an immediate, tailored solution with an enhanced level of security, at your place. Our uniformed, security-checked operatives will collect your confidential material in secure bins from a designated spot or from around your offices and take it to be shredded there and then. The added bonus is that you can watch the contents of your confidential bins being emptied directly on to the blades of the shredder in one of our hi-tech, low-emissions mobile shredding vehicles.

· Off-site services are built to scale and are a really cost-effective solution for regular collections or massive annual clear-outs alike. All collections are made by uniformed operatives in tracked vehicles and are transported to one of our 12 local destruction centres for same day shredding where our secure process makes sure that all materials and data are strictly contained and controlled.

· Hard drive and media destruction might be achievable by taking a hammer to it, but that’s simply not good enough! All the data on hard drives, discs and USB sticks needs to be protected and choosing either to ignore it in a cupboard or drawer, or trying to smash it to smithereens is not going to do the job. At Restore Datashred, a number of our mobile shredding vehicles have disc shredders on board, or we can collect and transport to your local depot for destruction and recycling.

· Product destruction is another area that requires your attention if you are serious about protecting your brand and services. Items such as ID cards, uniforms, product samples and counterfeit goods should all be handled with care, for the good of your reputation and for the environment. Restore Datashred can discreetly destroy all these items, supply you with a certificate of destruction for peace of mind, and send the shreds and fragments for recycling or to be converted into energy.

Local is good for all of us

Just because we’re a nationwide secure shredding services provider doesn’t mean we’re bad for your carbon footprint! On the contrary, we take extraordinary steps to make sure we provide a service to you, wherever you are, that has as little impact on the environment and gives as much of a boost to your CSR credentials as we can. Here’s what we do.

· 12 modern destruction centres, located strategically the length and breadth of the country – so there is always a centre local to you, offering the services you need.
· Progressive fleet management – 89.9% of our 200-strong fleet of trucks is Euro VI rated, which will increase to 95% by the end of 2020. This reduces emissions and enables city centre collections and routes, even in Ultra Low Emission Zones.

· Sustainable route management is what underpins our regular driver training, and we use sophisticated software to plan the most efficient routes and timings to suit you, as well as ensuring we are collecting and transporting to the destruction centre most local to you.

· Our company commitment is to send 0% to landfill from our shredding activities and we are a huge recycler of paper. To inform your internal and external stakeholders, we produce an online environmental report after each shred. This report documents how much CO2, energy and water you have saved and how many trees have not been cut down through using our secure shredding and recycling services.

Our security is good for you

We offer you coverage across the country of a range of quality services at all of our 12 destruction centres. But how do you know it’s the same quality of security at the depot that’s local to you?

We guarantee that each centre is equipped with…


CCTV – internal and external and remotely monitored 24/7, 365 days of the year

Intruder alarm system – the system is connected to a four-channel automatic reset digital communicator. Any signal received is recorded and communicated to the appropriate police station through the 24-hour central control room.

Fire alarm system – zonal smoke detectors with audible sounding devices are fitted in accordance with BS5839-1:2002. The system is connected to a 24-hour staffed central control room.
Secure entry – by appointment only.


All our people are DBS-checked and trained to operate in full knowledge of and sensitivity to compliance with regulations.

Data protection: no fines here!

According to the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) Q3 2019-2020 report, there were 2795 reported incidents of data breaches during that period. The majority of these were non-cyber incidents, ie, were the physical theft of confidential data and materials.

At Restore Datashred, we understand that data protection is an ongoing journey, and we know that, even though our services come at the end of your confidential data’s lifecycle, it is just as important to maintain security and privacy throughout our collection and destruction processes as at any other stage of the cycle.

All our processes, from collection to recycling, are regulated and monitored so that the integrity of your data’s protection remains untarnished. We will continue to help you meet regulations, as they evolve, and we always promptly supply a certificate of destruction for your records and peace of mind.
