Off-site Shredding

Should you choose an off-site service then all your unwanted material is taken to a secure local facility by GPS-monitored trucks? Once it reaches the facility it will be shredded, baled and recycled. Should you choose, you can watch this process and you will be given a certificate of destruction once the process is complete.

Our off-site shredding includes:

• Standard 16mm shred down to 2mm shredding when required.
• Shredding secure to BS EN 15713.
• Security staff collect material from site.
• Pre-8AM, after work and weekend options available as well as standard working days.

On-site Shredding

When you choose our on-site shredding service, the documents and hard drives that you need destroyed will be shredded on your premises in front of you. Once the waste has been destroyed, you will be provided with a certificate of destruction. Not only is this procedure fast and secure but you can also rest easy knowing your confidential waste has been dealt with.

One-off Purge Shredding

If your organisation only requires periodic shredding services, then we offer a one-off ‘purge’ service. Our one-off shredding service can be done either on-site or off-site and is as discreet and secure as our other shredding services. During an on-site purge, all the materials you want shredding are weighed for an accurate certificate of destruction. For an off-site purge, a certificate of destruction will be sent to you after same-day shredding.

When you no longer need these items, you must take the proper steps to destroy them or you or your customers could be left vulnerable. In addition, we will fully shred hard drives as opposed to punching holes in them ensuring full security.
