Summer time, and the living could be easy with document shredding…

With the final exam paper delivered weeks ago, the year’s paintings and poems stripped down from the walls and end-of-year parties’ streamers filed in the bin (recycling, of course), students UK-wide may well have heaved a huge sigh of relief when summer finally arrived but, behind the scenes, the Education sector is still hard at work.

The long summer holidays are traditionally the time for a massive clear out by admin teams, to make way for the new academic year in September and to comply with retention regulations. Whether on a local primary school scale, a college, university or a GCSE examining board scale, there are thousands of tonnes of paper and other recyclable materials that need to be responsible, confidentially disposed of each year. From little Freya’s finger painting of a donkey, right up to a genius-graded degree paper from a couple of years back, the physical assets simply cannot be kept indefinitely – we’d all drown in a tide of paper flotsam and jetsam, which is why document shredding is here to help!

So, the teaching hiatus is a brilliant time of year to focus on ensuring that papers and administrative documents are securely managed – either by moving assets into physical or virtual off-site storage or moving them on into the embrace of an industrial document shredding machine! That way, schools, colleges, examining boards and universities create space while protecting themselves and their students from online leaks or security issues and keep the recycling industry busy.

Restore Datashred can supply confidential disposal and peace of mind to any size of educational establishment. If you’ve just a few sackfuls of end-of-year paper to recycle, our state-of-the-art on-site disposal vehicles and knowledgeable operatives can be on hand to shred it, right at the school gate. For more industrial-scale disposal requirements, we can schedule collections to suit you and guarantee a secure audit trail from your office to our depot and on to the blades of the shredder – with all processes swiftly followed up by a certificate of destruction. Add an easy-to-use online portal, dedicated account manager and a ServiceMark level of customer service to the mix and you’ll see how we score top marks in secure document shredding and disposal.

Not only, but also…

Of course, it’s not just the Education sector that benefits greatly from having a huge clear-out. Many industries tend to be a little quieter over the summer period and it makes sense to get your house in order before the end-of-the-year schedules and budgets kick in once ‘normality’ resumes come September.
