Onsite shredding is done at your workplace. It guarantees the shortest chain of custody and so, by definition is the most secure option. This contrasts with offsite destruction (when confidential waste is collected and taken away) which has a longer chain of custody. The shorter the chain the less chance of a security breach. Read on to find out more.
Having your documents shredded on-site remves the need to audit the controls and premises used in the off-site destruction process.

With regular shredding visits and lockable shredding consoles, paperwork is disposed of immediately and securely. The consoles are emptied at every visit by one of our security vetted staff members and the contents are securely taken to the shred truck outside. The console bag is then emptied into the shredder. There are no opportunities for tampering during our process. You can view the process and see the paperwork being shredded yourself.
We are one of the only companies in the North West with ISO:27001 accreditation. Data controllers must make every effort to ensure the data processors are compliant; this award guaruntees that we comply with the highest standards. Compliance is important for your company too: the data protection act requires the destruction of all sensitive data to a sufficient level that it cannot be reconstructed.
