Off-site shredding process

Step 1

Step One

A secure, lockable console or bin will be delivered to your site by one of our Secure Collection Operatives on an agreed date that suits your business needs.

Step 2

Step Two

Our uniformed and BS7858 vetted Secure Collection Operative (SCO) will arrive at your business premises, on the pre-agreed schedule, to collect your confidential material. They will check and show their ID to a member of staff and sign in

Step 3

Step Three

The secure, lockable console or bin is unlocked by the SCO and the contents are emptied safely into a secure lockable wheelie bin to be securely removed from your site or business premises. A Waste Transfer Note is sent confirming we have taken ownership of that material.

Step 4

Step Four

The locked wheelie bin is taken to our specialised OFF site vehicle where it is securely locked in the back of the GPS tracked and fully secure vehicle. All confidential data is then transported back to one of our secure destruction centres to be shredded to BS EN15713:2009 standards.

Step 5

Step Five

A Certificate of Destruction will be supplied confirming all collected material has been destroyed. Shredded paper will be baled and sent for onward recycling back into paper based products

Why Restore Datashred?


Restore Datashred is one of the UK’s leading onsite and offsite shredding companies. We proudly help over 40,000 customers to dispose of confidential information in compliance with data protection legislation.

We take the security of your confidential data very seriously indeed. We’re BS EN15713:2009 shredding standard accredited, so you can be confident that the service you will receive from Restore Datashred will be of the very highest standard.

Confidential data and materials are collected by our uniformed and security-vetted staff, in a range of satellite-tracked and secure vehicles. The data is returned to one of our destruction centres, where it is unloaded inside a high security warehouse and shredded on the same day. All suitable shredded paper material is then baled and sent to a paper mill to be recycled into paper or tissue products, depending on the grade.


We ensure that all of our activities are closely monitored to minimise waste and carbon production and designed to help customers improve their own environmental performance by ensuring that, once shredded, all paper waste is recycled. Our range of office recycling solutions can also help you to further protect the environment, and meet your in-house environmental targets, by providing a suite of recycling reports and ensuring your business has the detail required to adhere to its environmental responsibility.

What Our Customers Say About Us

Furthermore, they provided all the relevant data protection paperwork to ensure that the data was destroyed according to the relevant regulations. If you want a quick, professional, good value and safe way to shred your paperwork I would highly recommend them.”
