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 observe our site via a 24-hour webcam, or to visit us at any time without an appointment.

  1. 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.
  2. Our operatives scan the barcodes on each receptacle, providing an audit trail that continues until the final invoice. They transfer the waste to our custom-built vehicle, where it’s securely locked in the rear.
  3. Confidential waste is transported to our state-of-the-art depot. All paper is shredded within two days at the Shredall premises. Our newly installed cross-cut shredder has doubled our daily shredding capability from 22 - 30 tonnes, making it more environmentally friendly and extremely cost effective.
  4. 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.
  5. The shredded waste is baled and picked up for recycling.

    Off-site shredding and compliance

    Our processes fully comply with the BS EN15713 Secure Destruction of Confidential Material, the standard specified by the BSIA (British Security Industry Association). This covers security levels, vetting of employees (to BS 7858), customer contracts, and recycling. It means all paper is cross-cut shredded to an unidentifiable end product, and that all services must have a full audit trail and conform to Environmental Agency and government legislation, including the Data Protection Act 1998.

    Lockable consoles, bins and confidential sacks

    We offer a range of lockable bins and data consoles and confidential sacks for you to store confidential paper waste in ready for on-site destruction. We can even order lockable wooden data consoles to match your office furniture. To find out more, visit the Receptacles section of our site.

"Shredall provide offsite shredding services across our 250 stores nationwide, due to many of our locations being on busy high streets, we opted for the offsite shredding service which enabled the Shredall operatives to be in our stores for the least amount of time. All the waste is transported in locked containers, in a secure tracked vehicle which puts our minds at ease with regards to security. SDS provide document storage solutions for us, we have hard copy deliveries to our 4 main offices twice a day and scan on demand retrieval services for our stores. We chose Shredall due to the fact they are a family run business, we always speak to someone we know on the other end of the phone. They have the ability and resources to provide various services that fit our needs at competitive rates. Shredall provide excellent service levels from the dedicated office staff and highly trained and friendly operatives. I would have no problem endorsing Shredall to any business."
