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.

How our off-site shredding process works:

We arrange an ad-hoc collection or a schedule for regular collections.

Our fully trained 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.

Confidential waste is transported to one of our state-of-the-art shredding depots in Glasgow or Nottingham and is shredded within 24 hours. Our cross-cut industrial shredders can shred over 320 tonnes per day. Once all materials have been destroyed, we 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 collected for recycling.

All of the above is carried out as per BS EN 15713 or equivalent.



Off-site shredding and compliance

Our off-site shredding is fully compliant 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. This helps to deliver confidence as all paper is cross-cut shredded to an unidentifiable end product, and that each service must have a full audit trail, conform to the Environmental Agency and government legislation, including the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).


Lockable consoles, bins and confidential sacks.

We offer a range of lockable bins, secure consoles, roll-on roll-off skip container hire, paper waste bins and paper sacks for you to store confidential paper waste in ready for off-site destruction.

Efficient booking service. The on-site shredding lorry arrived on schedule. Staff were very polite and helpful. I requested a one off shredding service of confidential papers from my business, from when I retired. I felt a valued customer even though I had made it clear that it was a one off situation.
