Secure Shredding Benefits

Free up valuable space

With our document destruction expertise, you can unlock your valuable, revenue-generating office space by securely destroying paper documents that are no longer required. Say goodbye to filing cabinets and cluttered paper storage.

Securely protect your information

Our secure shredding process ensures that sensitive, confidential records don't end up in the wrong hands. We conduct rigorous checks, screenings, training and certification to ensure the highest standards of security and confidentiality.

Protect the environment

Shredding paper records is an environmentally-friendly method of document disposal. Shredded paper is recycled in UK recycling mills to safeguard the environment as much as we can.

Manage document retention

When managing your documents, we can identify which paper records have surpassed their retention period and require secure destruction in order to effectively meet legal requirements.

How it works


Documents are packed in anti-tamper bags and transported via tracked, unliveried vehicles. For large-scale, multi-site projects, a collection schedule will be arranged.


On arrival, documents are booked onto internal tracking systems, then a shredding schedule is created and documents are securely stored until it is time to shred them.


Documents will be confidentially shredded in compliance with British Standards. Certification can be provided once all documents have been shredded.


Once documents have been shredded, paper waste is transported to a nearby paper mill to be recycled into newspaper, kitchen roll, toilet roll, and other paper products.
