Efficiency and organisation are essential for local authorities and the public sector more broadly in a time where everyone’s feeling the squeeze. Effectively managing paperwork - particularly sensitive documents - is an underrated way to free up more time for everyone in your office.

Shredall SDS Group provides a range of services to help you get on top of all the documents around your office and stay organised going forward. We have internationally-recognised security accreditations, so you can have complete confidence in our ability to work with you to manage any information, however sensitive it may be.

Disposing of confidential waste securely can be a challenge, which is why our document shredding services are designed to be as flexible as possible, whilst maintaining the highest degree of security. You can arrange for us to come and collect your waste for off-site shredding in a one-off collection or as an regular collection. Alternatively, we can use our mobile shredding machines to shred all your waste on-site, if that would be preferable.

Through our document scanning service, we can digitise any documents that you still want access to, even if you don’t need them in physical form anymore. Once scanned, any staff that you give authorisation to will be able to access the documents through an online portal and you’ll never have to worry about sorting through piles and piles of paper ever again.

We also offer an alternative to shredding: secure document storage. We can collect your documents to store them at our secure warehouse facility, where they will be safe from theft, loss or accidental damage. This is a particularly useful service if you know you have documents lying around that team members may still need to access in their original form, but we can scan any that you need digital access to as well.

Alongside our document management services, we also offer hard drive destruction that helps you deal with old IT equipment in a government-approved manner and textile destruction that ensures any uniforms won’t fall into fraudulent hands.

One of the most useful things that we can offer local authorities and other public sector organisations, whichever of our services you choose, is a review of your current practices and advice on how to maintain a high level of efficiency and organisation in the future. This will help you to stay on top of things, keeping costs and time wastage down in the long term.
