We recycle 100% of paper waste, as well as cardboard and electronic waste including mobile phones and hard drives.

Like many organisations today, we're aware of the need to reduce our environmental impact. We're committed to making sure that none of the waste we collect or create goes to landfill and we're proud that 100% of the paper we shred is recycled.

How do we recycle?

All paper and cardboard that we shred is baled at our recycling depots and sent to an environmentally approved and accredited mill on the United Kingdom, where it's made into tissue products and new packaging material.

We can get through 320 tonnes of waste paper in a day at the Shredall SDS Group premises, and our mobile machines run at an output of 3,000kg per hour. That’s a lot of shredded paper, and recycling it helps to:

  • Reduce future rainforest destruction
  • Reduce energy consumption from the manufacture of new materials
  • Reduce the amount of paper waste going to landfill
  • Reduce the emission of harmful gasses, like methane into the atmosphere.
  • Reduce future oil usage
  • Reduce future electricity usage

We also recycle electronic waste, which is sent to our WEEE-approved recycling partner.

"Whilst writing I would like to thank you and your teams for making this daunting task painless. 18.5 tonnes of paper gone within two days ! Your teams worked quickly and efficiently to clear the huge quantities – but also assisted in our recycling by saving folders, archive boxes etc. I cannot thank you all enough. I look forward to working with you again in the near future. "
