Many businesses opt for the added reassurance of on-site shredding, where we bring our mobile shredding unit to your site or office and you can witness your documents being destroyed first hand. We can make regular, scheduled visits, or you can book one-off collections as and when needed. It’s completely secure and you’ll be given a certificate of destruction right there and then.
How it works:
- You arrange when you’d like us to visit your site or office. We can work out a schedule for regular collections, or simply visit as and when you need us.
- Our operatives transfer the waste to our custom-built vehicle, then weigh it.
- The destruction process is witnessed by an appropriate person from your company and carried out by our specially trained operative. Our fast, efficient on-site shredding machines can shred around 3,000kg of paper per hour.
- Once all materials have been destroyed we’ll issue a certificate of destruction showing the weight and details of the collection. This is a minimum requirement for anyone disposing of confidential waste and should be held on file for six years.
- The shredded waste is then compacted into the rear
compartment of the vehicle, locked and transported to our depot, where it will
be baled and picked up for recycling.
On-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.
