Document Shredding

Failure to safely dispose of confidential files and papers could expose your customers, suppliers and employees to identity theft which is why secure document shredding is a must for any business. With an increased awareness of data security there are many companies that claim to offer a safe service. Under data protection and waste legislation the requirements of Data Controllers are clearly set out. You can be assured that Topwood’s document shredding services will keep your business's reputation safe and green.

Topwood offers secure on-site and off-site document destruction. These services can be scheduled for regular collections or 'as required'. For every batch of confidential material shredded a Certificate of Destruction can be downloaded. The shredded paper is recycled into useful paper products. We supply a range of consoles, wheelie bins and sacks that will keep your material safe, ready for shredding.

Regular Shredding

Many organisations believe the purchase of office paper shredders will sufficiently cope with the destruction of their confidential paper waste.

High Security Shredding

On-site destruction is the safest option. It ensures the shortest chain of custody so by definition there is less opportunity for a breach of security.

What happens when a document has been securely shredded?

Topwood is proud of its 100% paper recycling rate. Once the paper documents are shredded beyond recovery they are fed into a paper baler. The baled paper is then graded and sent to UK paper mills for recycling. At the mills the paper is pulped using water and the debris is floated off or removed with electro magnets. The pulping process reverts the fibres back to their raw state by removing inks and other contaminates. The water is then extracted from the pulp and the fibres are dried, pressed and wound onto huge reels. These reels are then cut to smaller reels or sheets for printers and tissue manufacturers.
