How Swift Shred off-site shredding works

Keeping your confidential materials secure

One of our secure collection operatives will deliver a secure, lockable cabinet, console or wheelie bin to your site or sites, at a pre-agreed time to suit you. In that way, all confidential materials – from paper to hard drives to textiles – enter the secure disposal stream and not the general waste.

Secure collection at a time to suit you

Our uniformed and vetted secure collection operative will arrive promptly at your business or organisation 48 hours later to collect all your confidential materials. They will show their ID to one of your team to sign in, start the unbroken chain of custody, and then unobtrusively collect all the bins required.

We lock all collected bins safely into our vehicle

All the locked bins are logged and taken directly to our vehicle where we lock them inside. Our secure collection operative then drives the GPS-tracked truck or van to the Restore Datashred destruction centre closest to you. Every step of the journey is electronically recorded, creating an audit trail and proof of an unbroken chain of custody, for your peace of mind.

We promptly shred your confidential materials

There’s no hanging around. After each shredding transaction we will send you both a waste transfer notice and, on completion, a certificate of destruction for your records. It’s that simple.

What we shred

While paper records, documents and cardboard folders form the majority of what we shred, a significant percentage includes textiles – such as uniforms – hard drives, ID cards and other plastic and digital media. Ask us if we can shred it, and there’s a strong chance that we do!
