How our shredding service works

We arrange an ad-hoc collection or a schedule for regular shredding collections as part of our commercial shredding services. Our fully trained operatives confidentially transfer the waste to our high-security MOD-approved shredding vehicles, then weigh it.

If you opt for on-site shredding, the destruction process is witnessed by an appropriate person from your company and carried out by our specially trained operatives. If you opt for off-site shredding, the confidential waste is transported to one of our state-of-the-art depots and is shredded within 24 hours.

We issue a Certificate of Destruction showing the weight and details of the collection. You will also be provided with a full audit trail as standard with all professional shredding services, allowing you to see the location of your confidential waste at any point in time.

The shredded waste is then compacted into the rear compartment of the vehicle, locked and transported to our shredding depot in Glasgow or Nottingham, where it will be baled and collected for recycling.

All carried out as per BS EN 15713 or equivalent.
