Document Shredding St Helens

St Helens is one of the larger towns in Merseyside and the area developed rapidly in the Industrial Revolution with the glass industry as a major employer including Pilkington Brothers who still produces all of the UK’s output of flat glass. Topwood regularly shred in St Helens and the surrounding areas including Thatto Heath, Windlehurst, West Park, Eccleston, Rainhill, Prescot and Haydock.

Regular On-Site Shredding in St Helens

Many organisations believe that office shredders are sufficient to clear the small amounts of regular waste paper that is produced. Whilst these shredders are sold a heavy duty shredders, they struggle to cope with large amounts of papers, especially those that contain paperclips, staples and bulldog clips. This results in office staff spending time removing such stationery before shredding and feeding a few sheets through the shredder at a time. These inefficiencies often lead to firms outsourcing their shredding to professional shredding firms such as Topwood.

Unlike educational institutions such as St Helens College and Carmel College where one-off annual purges are the preferred service, organisations in the construction industry and charities such as Helena Partnerships prefer a regular shredding service to maintain their GDPR compliance throughout the year. Construction companies such as CBES located on Lea Green Business Park choose to have a lockable shredding bin to safely secure their waste paper until Topwood come to empty and shred the contents on-site. The consoles are supplied free on loan as part of a regular shredding service. They have a letterbox slot in the top allowing for easy disposal of unwanted papers and documents and the baffle plate inside means nothing can be retrieved.

I just wanted to say how pleased I am with the shredding service. I’ve just realised I didn’t get your guy’s name unfortunately – but he was very helpful, polite and friendly.

Aaron Kiely, Archdiocese of Liverpool

Dear Tom, Just a word of thanks for the courteous and efficient service offered today by Mark and Stu. They managed the shredding and delivery of a larger than expected number of boxes with the minimum of fuss – in addition to the normal collection of paper from LACE – and were pleasant to talk to as the job was being done.
