Off-site shredding, where we collect and transport waste to be shredded at our depot, is a secure, cost-effective way to safely destroy confidential waste.
You can have complete confidence in our security measures once the waste leaves your site. As well as providing a full audit trail, we also invite you to visit us at any time without an appointment.
Our off-site shredding process, includes:
- You arrange when you’d like us to collect your confidential waste. We can work out a schedule for regular collections, or simply visit as and when you need us.
- Our operatives scan the barcodes on each receptacle, providing an audit trail that continues until the final invoice. We then transfer the waste to our custom-built vehicle, where it’s securely locked in the rear.
- Confidential waste is transported to one of our state-of-the-art depots. All paper is shredded within 24 hours at the Shredall premises. Our cross-cut shredder's can shred over 320 tonnes per day, making it more environmentally friendly and extremely cost effective.
- Once all materials have been destroyed we’ll issue a certificate of destruction. This is a minimum requirement for anyone disposing of confidential waste and should be held on file for six years.
The shredded waste is baled and picked up for recycling.

Our away from work shredding is fully compliant with the BS EN15713 Secure Destruction of Confidential Material, the standard specified by the BSIA (British Security Industry Association).
